why should we back stores that do ppl wrong that work hard for them i have lost all faith in the mangment of the store on the asheville hwy and the snap ferry rd stores. i no of 3 ppl that work there all three are hard workers and all 3 are done wrong one has been there 29 years and lots of times work off the clock for that store and and for what? sounds like steven smith needs to pay gary helbert and roger cutshall and bland justis a visit.btw not been that many years that bland was made to step down from wrong inmoreal conduct and now going be the new store manger at the new store on the bypass, and theres cool guy gary helbert reminds me of a perv dyeing his hair has a wife works at the same store yea btw store rule no close kin works at the same store guess thats what they call good oleboyes right ? and then theres good old boy roger cutshall goes to church never dose worong thats intill u piss him off ohlets dont forget his family that works the same store on well there went store rules again greeneville his this the kind of store u want to shop at thats cuts hours fires good ppl over nothing or cuts hours. and they think no one knows about the dirty little things that go on mangers haveing sex behind closed doors btw or maybe the real reason why fc was sold back in 84???????? or writeing a young kid up over a small coment made to the wrong person for a long time things hasnt been right about both stores and its time ppl find out how dirty they are steven smith time you clean house

I dont like Gary Helbert and i don't even work there, I am just a customer. I don't know why they are building yet another Food City in this town, 2 are enough! I was hoping we were getting something else in that space, I was very disappointed to find out it was another Food City. This town is paid off! I will still shop at the Ingles beside it because their bakery and deli beats Food City hands down! Steve Smith is a money hungry asshole. I wish we could get a Publix in this town, that would bring FC down a notch or two!
wow

If they don't like it, they can find another job. If you don't like it, don't shop there. If you need peace, seek God.

Wow, you're a real problem solver aren't you! I hope you aren't in management but given the track record down there it's a possibility. You are telling a CUSTOMER to shop somewhere else???? We all know Steve frowns on that. Wonder what would happen if I copied your post and went to the FC site and made a complaint about you saying that to a customer? You are aware of the whole IP address being able to be identified thing right??? And what would make you think that because I have complaints about a grocery store i use means I don't have inner peace and need to seek God??? are you JUDGING me like the bible speaks against by assuming I have not already sought God in my life simply because a grocery store needs improvements? Seems maybe you should follow your own words of wisdom and stop sinning by judging others. Read your bible in your spare time, it might help you.

The fact that someone has been employed at a place of business for a number of years does not make them manager or higher up material. I know a fellow who has beeen at Food City for over 20 years, He is a great person but absolutely not what I would consider management material. Personal presentation, education, work ethic and ability are all considered when giving promotions. I personally like Gary Hilbert. He appears to know his job and to do it well. As far as his wife working at the same place if it were against Food City rules I would think that the corporation would have done something about it years ago.The local stores do not set policy and the regional office should know what is going on.

I don't know any of the involved. But they are building another food city because the city tried to attract a new grocery chain but didn't get any sign of interest from any of the national chains. So it wasn't a choice between a Food City or Publix, the choice was between a Food City or another empty building.

I'm just not sure I get your point. No offense personally, but of course they're putting in a store to make a profit, that's why any store would open. The disappointment shouldn't be directed at Food City, the city would've jumped at the chance if Publix or Fresh Market or Kroger would've shown any interest. Your anger should be directed at those chains that continue to ignore the city.

I like Ingles too, so go ahead and go there if you prefer. I personally believe Food City would make more profit if they built new stores and tried to enter the Roanoke/Blacksburg market where they have no stores. But I don't see much use in running down a local company for spending millions to open a store that would otherwise be an empty building.

First I want to say that anyone who get's on Topix and has to unload their opinion on a business in our town is shallow! Sounds to me like someone just did'nt get their way.....stupid! Grow up, maybe that attitude is what held you back. As far as 3 "good" people losing their jobs, they did'nt lose them for no reason, they messed up somewhere along the line, perhaps several times and it finally caught up to them. Now for the one who did'nt get the promotion after working there for years....even employees have to go through an interview process with people from KVAT. It is not up to the store manager, it is a process that he has nothing to do with, he is'nt even involved in the interview. I think instead of trying to blame everybody else, perhaps you need to own up to the fact you did'nt interview well for that job. There comes a point when people need to stop blaming everybody else for their downfalls and be mature enough to own up to the fact, you just short changed yourself!

I think the original articles said it was supposed to open around November 2012 but I have not seen an updated date. I was thinking the other store (Tj maxx or whatever it is) was supposed to open in the first quarter of 2013 originally. Looks like that one will be behind as well.
Oh my bad

Food City is crooked. Google and find out what they did to Bluefield West Virginia. Food City KVAT is hated in Bluefield West Virginia. Food City KVAT is aggressive and destructive to the communities where they operate. There is also a boycott of Food City.

There are many many in Bluefield Wv that literally HATE & DESPISE food city. They leased a building to keep a much much better ( and much more reasonable priced) grocer that we badly need here from getting a really good former grocery location. Food city is extremely high and overpriced and cannot(or chooses not to) compete honestly but use the dirty low down tactics they used here.They have and are hurting a whole lot of people here and there is a boycott of the Bluefield Va store...one CRAPPY food city is way more than enough in any area.
