Food City will open its newest Chattanooga area store when a 48,600-square-foot unit debuts in Dalton, Ga., on Wednesday.
The supermarket is located on West Walnut Avenue and will serve as the area's second location.
"The Dalton area residents have certainly been supportive of our company and we're extremely excited to provide our loyal customers with a new, state-of-the-art Food City," said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer, in a statement.
The location includes an in-store bakery/deli, complete with a hot food bar, large cafe seating area, pizzeria and deluxe fresh food bar, featuring a wide variety of soup, wings, salad and fruit selections, the company said.
Also, it will have full service meat and seafood departments offering 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.
Rapid checkout service will be provided by seven traditional check-out lanes and four self-check-outs, according to Food City.
For added convenience, the store also includes a Food City pharmacy offering a full range of services and 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.
"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," said Smith.
The new store will also offer the added convenience of GoCart curbside pick-up. Customers can select their purchases on-line at foodcity.com and their order will be filled by a professional shopper and loaded into their vehicle when they arrive at the store, according to the grocer. Payment can be made on-line or by credit or debit card at the time of pick-up.
