Reviews, Comments, Communications, and Other Content
Visitors may post reviews, comments, photos, and other content; send e-cards and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of "spam." You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. Food City reserves the right (but not the obligation) to monitor, remove and/or edit any such content at any time and in our sole discretion. If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Food City a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media. You grant Food City and sublicensees the right to use the name that you submit in connection with such content, if they choose. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Food City and our subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of our respective officers, directors, shareholders, members, managers, employees and agents, for all claims resulting from content you supply. Food City has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor, remove and/or edit any activity or content at any time in its sole discretion. Food City takes no responsibility, and assumes no liability for, any content posted by you or any third party.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, We do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product you purchase is not as described on the site, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
Except where noted otherwise, the Item List Price displayed for products on our site represents the full retail price listed on the product itself. The Item List Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are sold by weight, the List Price will represent prices based on the weight of item selected and placed in online shopping cart and means the final price charged may vary based on actual weight of product shopped. Sale items may reflect the product’s current sale price and product savings will be noted.
With respect to items sold by Food City, we cannot confirm the price of an item until your order is shopped; however, we do NOT charge your credit card until after your order has been shopped. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our online store may be mispriced. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion and without liability, contact you for instructions before completing your order and notify you of any higher price variances (except weighted items).
Food City advertised weekly sales begin at 12:01am on Wednesday. Online prices reflect the sale price of an item when the order is placed AND for the current week’s sale period, not when the order is scheduled for pick-up. Sale prices cannot be “locked in” by ordering before the sale ends unless the order is shopped AND picked up prior to the sale end date.
For produce, deli, seafood and meat items that are priced by the pound, your shopper will select the items that most closely match the weight you wish to purchase. You will be billed only for the actual amount of product selected. Consequently, the total dollar amount of your order may vary slightly.
We provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant the offerings of, any of these businesses or individuals or the content of their web sites. Food City does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and/or policies, and other terms and/or conditions of use.
