Food City will open a second store in Dalton, Georgia, on Wednesday when the grocery chain unveils its 48,600-square-foot supermarket on West Walnut Avenue.
The new store, which has been under construction since last April, includes a pharmacy, an in-store bakery and deli with a hot food bar, full-service meat and seafood departments , a floral shop and an expanded grocery selection with gourmet, international and specialty items. Rapid checkout service is provided by seven traditional check-out lanes and four self-check-outs.
"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," Food City CEO Steve Smith 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."
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. Payment can be made online or by credit or debit card at the time of pick-up.
The new Food City store in Dalton will open Wednesday with a grand opening ceremony at 8 a.m.
Food City, which is headquartered in Abingdon, Virginia, is owned by K-VA-T Food Stores and operates 130 retail outlets, including its other Food City store in Dalton on Cleveland Highway in the Northside Plaza.
