History And Creation Of Food City, is going to be today’s post here in Discover My Inventions, Food City which is a well-known name supermarket, food city regionally started out as Piggly Wiggly, which was well known supermarket of the 1950s through till the mid-1980s then was changed to Food City, and I can remember the location of the stores when it first started out here in Eastern Kentucky.
The new locations was found and you stores were built and now the old original buildings which once was Piggly Wiggly and Food City is now called Super Dollar which is a grocery chain which is in the category of Save-A-Lot food store. Food City is an American supermarket chain with stores located in Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia.
It offers the house labels Food Club, Top Crest, ValuTime, Food City Fresh!, Food City Premium, Full Circle, Domestix, Electrix, Academix, Pet Club, and World Classics many of which are part of the Topco corporate brand program. Food City is also the exclusive distributor of regional favorites such as Kay’s Ice Cream, Moore’s Classic Snacks, Terry’s Classic Snacks, Kern’s Bread, Lay’s Classic Meats, along with Chuck Wagon Dog Food.
K-VA-T Food Stores traces its history to 1955, when company founder Jack Smith opened his first 8,800-square-foot (820 m2) Piggly Wiggly store in Grundy, Virginia, with the help of three special stockholders: his father, Curtis Smith, uncle, Earl Smith and cousin, Ernest Smith. In 1963, Smith added a second store in South Williamson, Kentucky, followed by a newly constructed third location in Pikeville, Kentucky, in 1965, and a store in Prestonsburg, Kentucky, in 1967.
The company continued to grow steadily until 1984 when they acquired Quality Foods, a 19-store chain (founded in 1918), that operated under the Food City name. The Smiths adopted Food City as the new nameplate, along with its heritage, for all of their stores going forward. In 1989, Food City purchased the 43-store White Stores chain based out of Knoxville, TN, more than doubling the size of the company.
