There’s lot of talk over at Topix about Publix. No, we’re not trying to be cute by spitting a quick rhyme. Rumor has it, Publix Super Markets, Inc. has acquired Food City, KVAT Food Stores. Feel free to go incognito in our comment section if you’ve got the low-down.
Did Publix Buy Food City? https://knoxify.com/did-publix-buy-food-c…
@knoxify That would be awesome. We need Publix in Knoxville.
I work for food city in BRISTOL, Va. Every higher up we ask will neither confirm or deny which speaks volumes I think. The scuttle here is an announcement will be comeing sometime around our august night race. Vendors who serve us insist its a done deal. I have been through a similar buy out in the past and the patterns are strikingly familiar. In that case we were the very LAST to know. A press release was issued first. If its true i hope FOOD CITY has the decency to tell us first
@ed wood: Thanks for the info Ed. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out over the coming months. From what I understand Publix is a good company with a good reputation.
@Michael Silence: Boo hiss. Publix is an awesome grocery store. Delicious cupcakes.
I’m hoping to move to Knoxville in the next two years from the Birmingham, AL area. We have Publix and Jim ‘N Nicks BBQ here — I hope they open up some Publix stores before we move. The difference between Publix and other stores is night and day.
well I got a publix card in the mail the other day that states I get $5 off a $20 purchase in there store. Mighty interesting since the closest one is Nashville.
I grew up in south florida and Publix is the best grocery store I have ever delt with for quality and service. My mom has been a faithful customer for over 50 years.
We need Publix in Bristol too.
