Publix Buys Food City

I disagree... No company ever tips their hand until it's time for it to happen.. Too many legal and confidentialities in deals such as this for either company to speak about it... For sure they would deny it... Many within the grocery area consider all of Food City areas to be prime as they consider Food City to have it's on "franchsied area" where they firmly compete with Wal-Mart, etc while maintainng strong market shares... The Knoxville & Tri-Cities areas are prime time opportunities for anyone such as Publix.. Your pipedreaming if you don't think Publix, Houchen's Industries, etc would love to have all of K-VA-T's stores and areas... Too remember their distribution center.. Someone like publix would have all they need to grown into Tennessee, Virginia, Western North Carolina, etc by having the Food City Distribution Center... Sounds like your trying to convience yourself it's not going to happen.... You should still ask yourself the question as to why Steve Smith has not issued any statements denying this, especially with it being in the publics (his customers) eyes and ears.. The past would lead us to believe his normal recation would be to do that, but that is not the case this time.... hhmmmm  (Jun 27, 2009 | post #13)

I say it is true or the Food City executives would be publicly denying it to the media, community & their employees, that is not happening... Makes you think...  (Jun 26, 2009 | post #8)
