No surprise here. The parking lot is nearly always empty. It is surprising they have been able to remain in business as long as they have.

I wish they'd do something with our Kroger store. It's always so filthy. They need to send them to the Crossville Kroger to see how a store should be clean.

I stopped shopping at Food Lion last year when they announced support of the homosexual agenda.

Kroger store is always clean when I shop there. Sparta Kroger has a very clean Deli. Their employees are great. I love Sparta Kroger.

I agree, Sparta Kroger is filthy. Produce always rotted.

We drive to Cookeville Kroger to food shop. Couldn't ask for a better food store.

I use Food Lion in Cookeville. It is as as close to a Publix there is. Wonder if it is closing as well. Wish they'd get a Publix.

I HATE Kroger in Cookeville the store is too full too many people in there and people in Cookeville are rude and annoying standing in the middle of the aisle not bothering to get out of someones way. The worst part over there is the Parking is horrible.

I really hate to see Food Lion go. You can always get in and out of there so quickly.(Guess that's the problem!) It is always neat and clean, and the people who work there are always so courteous and helpful. I want them to know they have been appreciated by some of us, and I wish them success in finding other work!(P.S. I told my husband that he will have to start doing the grocery shopping. I can't stand any of the other stores!)

"The people over this town" have nothing to do with it unless they too decided not to shop at Food Lion. If Food Lion had received enough business to be profitable they would not be closing. Walmart wins again. Their parking lot is always at least half full. Anybody else notice that now more than a few of the food products are now made in China? Hows that for trusting the enemy. It's cheaper so we will buy it regardless. We will ride the cart right on over the cliff.

Publix is far from over priced. Not any worse than the others. Better selection and different items you can't find around here.

It is true. We are moving fast down the path towards becoming the United States of China. Greed is taking us there, like a wolf in sheep's clothing.
