“Area consumers can rest assured that we plan to complete the conversion process as quickly as possible, with the least interruption to the normal flow of business,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. He said he expected the conversion to Food City stores to be complete by early October. Meetings with BI-LO employees begin this weekend. Smith said most of BI-LO's 2,000 employees will be retained, with full seniority.
The company plans to invest over $40 million dollars in capital improvements to the locations during the first year.
BI-LO shoppers can expect to find many of the brands and products they currently enjoy, blended with a wide variety of items offered by Food City, according to Chief Operating Officer Jesse Lewis, a longtime executive with Red Food Stores, the company that preceded BI-LO in Chattanooga. “It’s our intention to enhance the overall variety and selection and further develop the services and conveniences provided to shoppers,” adds CEO Smith.
Company officials also said a loyalty card program will be offered, similar to BI-LO's Bonus Card and Fuel Perks promotion.
CEO Smith concluded by stressing the company's emphasis on helpful associates. "This is a people business," he said. "We hire great people, and we train great people. That's what convinces people to shop in a particular store, and we want to be that store."
