“We are excited to be joining the Bartow County retail community. We look forward to constructing a state-of-the-art supermarket that will create quality jobs and tax revenue for the citizens of Bartow County,” said Steven Smith, Food City president and CEO, in a statement.
Bartow County Commissioner Steve Taylor said in a statement, “We are very pleased to partner with a great company like Food City and bring a much-needed new, first-class grocery store to central Bartow County. Food City is exactly the kind of quality company we work hard to attract.”
Food City said the new location will also feature several award-winning energy saving concepts, “ranging from energy efficient glass cooler doors, parking lot lights and refrigeration systems to motion sensors and 100% LED lighting, as well as an open rafter ceiling design.”
