For the most part, Food City ads are the same in all locations. There are, however, a few exceptions that cause some items to differ. They are:
1. Regional preferences. Since Food City operates in several different regions, there are some items that are preferred in some areas that aren 't in others. For example, customers in our more southern stores prefer coffee in bags. In the northern regions, they tend to buy more coffee in cans.
2. Special sales. From time to time we will offer special sales in specific areas to celebrate such things and newly constructed or newly remodeled stores, community events, or special promotions. These sales are limited to a specific time period and are in addition to our regular weekly sale.
3. Soft drink price zones. Soft drinks are supplied to us by several different bottlers throughout our marketing area. These bottlers operate independently and can choose which products and packages they want to promote. Therefore, we must vary the offers in our ads to accommodate the different soft drink manufacturer.
4. Local taxes and regulations. Different states and localities have rules that can affect the price of some of the products we sell. For example, taxes on tobacco products are different in Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky. In addition, some towns impose an additional tax on these products. Another example is milk. In Virginia, the department of agriculture regulates how cheaply retailers can sell milk. In Kentucky, they do not.
