Food City held a groundbreaking ceremony in Huntsville, Alabama.

Food City officials held a groundbreaking ceremony July 12 on a new store in the Owens Cross Roads community of Huntsville, Alabama.

The 60,000-square-foot retail supermarket is expected to open early next year and is the first of six stores planned for the Huntsville market.

“We are excited to be joining the Owens Cross Roads retail community. We look forward to constructing a state-of-the-art supermarket that will create quality jobs and tax revenue for the residents of Owens Cross Roads and Madison County,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and CEO.

The location will include an in-store bakery and deli, complete with a hot food bar, large café seating area, fireplace, Asian wok, fresh food bar, hickory wood smoker, brick pizza oven and fresh sushi.

Expanded grocery, frozen food and produce departments will go beyond the normal fare with a large selection of specialty, gourmet and vegan items. Customers will also be able to find Food City’s private label brands throughout the store.

Checkout service will be provided by seven traditional check-out lanes and 10 self-checkouts. GoCart curbside pick-up and home delivery will be available for customers shopping online.
