Is there ever going to be a Food City in Vonore? The only place there is is the Sloans and every time I go in there the people are rude. There is so many new people and they dont know what they are doing. This use to be the friendliest place but all of a sudden every nice person left. We need a new place for groceries. What happened to this place.

I think the new Food Lion at 444 and 72 scared them off. If you don't like Sloans take a short drive to Food Lion, you will be impressed.

I wouldn't say that, the new Food City is coming, it is just on hold right now. Citizens of Vonore, please have patience, a new and better store is coming, with better service to boot!

Be patient Vonore. I'm a Food City employee and at a recent stock plan meeting one of the FC honchos told us that land has been purchased in the Vonore area.

Because of the economic downturn expansion had been put on hold...for now...but FC numbers are on an uptick and they are about ready to start the expansion again.

Sloans store is a joke they over price everything. I never shop there anymore. I cant wait for Food City to come and everyone I know hates shopping at Sloans its a joke. And the management staff is even a bigger one, lining there pockets and TK is so clueless to it. Wake up. TK Sloan ur most trusted employees are ur worst enemies. HA HA

I shop at Food City all the time. Let me tell you, they are by far, the best Grocery store around. They are worth driving from Vonore or Madisonville to Loudon for. They have wonderful deals in their store. Check it out!

Thanks to the owner (s) of Sloans we will not see Food City at 72 & 411 anytime soon.
Sloans ran the last small food store off with control of the Vonore politics. The family members are on more that one board. They make sure Vonore is Sloans Land!

Check out what Sloan is on what board in Monroe County. They have control over Vonore.
