Food City celebrates the renovation of Piney Flats | Business News

PINENY FLATS, TE – Food City held a grand reopening celebration for its newly renovated and expanded location in Piney Flats, Tennessee, Tuesday.

At the grand reopening ceremony, Johnson City Commissioner Jenny Brown reminded what Piney Flats were like before Food City arrived and thanked Food City CEO Steve Smith and company representatives for their work redesigning the site, where so much in the community meets.

“I think many of us can remember riding through Piney Flats several years ago, and maybe you could stop and get a soft drink and maybe get some gas. You could vaccinate your dog and cat on the road here at Appalachian Animal Hospital. But, there were no services and support for goods and services. In Pine Flats. When Food City came along, that all changed,” Brown said. “This is where the gathering is. This is where people come to catch up on the news, talk to each other and reconnect as citizens. We are so proud, and Steve, of you and all the Food City team members, you keep moving forward, and we are so proud of that.”

During his remarks, Food City CEO Smith thanked his Food City team and emphasized the region’s grocery roots.

“I remember 16 years ago when we first opened that door. We made a big bet that this community would continue to grow, and that bet paid off, and here we are, adding back to the store, redesigning the store, and making another investment in Sullivan County and Johnson City, And we are proud to do that because we are a local company,” Smith said. “Our goal is to run the best store in town day in and day out.”

At the end of the Food City reopening party, which included ribbon cutting, American flag raising and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner, Smith took some extra time to announce the creation of a Kurtz Ace Hardware store across the street.

“You may have noticed that there is a little bit of construction going on at the Family Dollar[across the road]that will become the Kurtz Ice Hardware Store that opens in mid-August,” Smith said.
