New Food City Coming To Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe

Thursday, April 19, 2018
Earlier today, company officials announced plans to construct a new Food City at 540 Highway US-41 in Ringgold/Ft. Oglethorpe.  The 49,700+ square foot supermarket is expected to open fall of 2018 and will serve as the area’s second location.    

“The area residents in both Tennessee and Georgia have certainly been supportive of our company and we’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to provide our loyal customers with a new, state-of-the-art Food City,” says Steven C.
Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.  

The location includes an in-store bakery/deli, complete with a hot food bar, large café seating area, pizzeria and deluxe fresh food bar, featuring a wide variety of soup, wings, salad and fruit selections.  Full service meat and seafood departments offer pre-marinated and seasoned oven ready products, plus a complete selection of top quality meats that are all-natural with no solutions added, including Certified Angus Beef and fresh sushi.  In-house meat cutters hand cut steaks and fresh meat to order.  Expanded grocery, frozen food and produce departments go well beyond the normal fare with a huge selection of gourmet, international and specialty items.  The Food City Floral Boutique is staffed with a designer seven days per week, offering a full assortment of fresh-cut floral arrangements, bouquets, gift items and more.  Rapid checkout service is provided by six traditional check-out lanes and four self-check-outs.  

"For added convenience, Food City is proud to continue its relationship with Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union (TVFCU), who will offer an in-store branch banking option, Food City Pharmacy offering a full range of services, and a Food City Gas N’ Go, featuring a large five pump station, including diesel fuel.  The new location also features several award winning energy saving concepts, ranging from energy efficient glass cooler doors, parking lot lights and refrigeration systems to motion sensors and 100 percent LED lighting, as well as an open rafter ceiling design," officials said.

“Our customers will find the same exceptional customer service, top quality products and competitive pricing they have come to expect from Food City, housed in a more energy efficient model, along with some exciting new features and conveniences,” says Mr. Smith.

Headquartered in Abingdon, Va., K-VA-T Food Stores (Food City’s parent company) operates 132 retail outlets throughout southeast Kentucky, southwest Virginia, east Tennessee, Chattanooga and north Georgia.
