Food City hosted a grand reopening for its newly remodeled store at 1225 W. St. Mary’s Road in Tucson, Arizona, last week. The festivities ran from Wednesday, April 4 through Sunday, April 8.
During the fiesta-themed celebrations, customers got a first-hand look at the refreshed store and its new and expanded offerings. They also had a chance to enjoy food samples, enter raffles for giveaways, and take in live performances from mariachi singers.
On Wednesday, the first 300 shoppers who purchased groceries at the store received a free reusable bag filled to the brim with groceries and goodies. Throughout the week, Food City held raffles where guests had the opportunity to win prizes including home appliances, gift baskets and Food City gift cards.
