Food City is closing its Brainerd location as of Sept. 4.
The storeis at 4011 Brainerd Road.
Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer, said, “As one can imagine, this was a very difficult decision for our company to say the least. One that was reached only after great consideration.
“For some time, we looked for a replacement store in the vicinity, but were not able to find a suitable replacement. We are offering all of our associates positions at Food City locations in the surrounding area.
“As we continue to update and open new stores in the greater Chattanooga market, we will continue to look for locations to serve the community, including the Brainerd area.”
