Brainerd Road Food City To Reopen Wednesday

Thursday, October 19, 2017

Shelves are stocked in preparation of the Wednesday reopening of the East Brainerd Road Food City.  The 48,000+ square foot supermarket has undergone an expansion and remodel over the past several months.     

“The Chattanooga area residents have certainly been supportive of our company and we’re extremely excited to provide our loyal customers with this new, larger state-of-the-art Food City to replace the former outdated location,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.   

The new store includes a bakery/deli, complete with a hot food bar, larger sit-down café, expanded cheese selections, enlarged produce, grocery, frozen food and health and beauty departments, as well as a full line of natural and organic items.  Full service meat and seafood departments offer pre-marinated and seasoned oven ready products, plus a selection of meats that are all-natural with no solutions added, including Certified Angus Beef and fresh sushi.  In-house meat cutters will hand cut steaks and fresh meat to order.  The Food City Floral Boutique offers a large assortment of fresh-cut floral arrangements, bouquets and gift items.  Rapid checkout service is provided by six traditional check-out lanes, one express lane and four self-check-outs.  The Food City Pharmacy provides prescription services and the Food City Gas N’ Go offers the added convenience of fuel.   

Food City’s GoCart curbside pick-up allows customers to select their purchases on-line at foodcity.com.  Their order is filled by a shopper and loaded into their vehicle when they arrive at the store.  And, they can pay for their purchases on-line or by credit or debit card at the time of pick-up.  Food City Home Delivery (powered by Instacart) is also now available to over 160,000 Chattanooga area residents.  To take advantage of this new time saving initiative, visit the website at  foodcitydelivers.com or download the Instacart App.   

“I’m confident that our customers are going to be pleased with their new, much improved Food City and will agree that it was well worth the wait,” said Rodney Dillard, Food City district manager.   

The location also features a new décor package, along with several award winning energy saving concepts.  These range from energy efficient glass cooler doors and refrigeration systems to motion sensors and 100 percent LED lighting, both inside and outside the store. 

“I’m very excited about the new store and the additional variety, selection and services it will provide our customers,” said store manager, Calvin Johnson.
