Food City to Open New Store at Rutledge Pike in Blaine, Tennessee

Food City announced its plans to open a new store at Rutledge Pike in Blaine, Tennessee. The 44,500+ square foot supermarket will be the chain's first location in Grainger County and is expected to be completed by fall. The location will include an in-store bakery/deli, complete with a hot food bar and sit-down cafe. Full service meat and seafood departments will 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. In-house meat cutters will hand cut steaks and fresh meat to order. The Food City Floral Boutique will be 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 will be provided by six traditional check-out lanes, one express lane and four self-check-outs. For added convenience, the store will also offer a Food City Pharmacy, equipped with a drive-thru for greater ease in prescription services and a Food City Gas N' Go with a large five pump station, including diesel fuel. The new location also features an open rafter ceiling and several award winning energy saving concepts. These range from energy efficient glass cooler doors, parking lot lights and refrigeration systems to motion sensors, LED lighting and a new skylight system that automatically dims the lights based upon the level of natural lighting for maximum energy efficiency.
