Food City opens second 'green' prototype store

Kingsport's newest Food City on Clinchfield Street is set to open this morning, and the store includes green features to help improve its environmental footprint and bottom line, reports Kate Prahlad of the Johnson City Press.

New energy saving concepts included in the new location range from energy efficient glass doors on all dairy, beverage and lunch meat cases to a skylight system designed for maximum energy efficiency -- on sunny days, store lights will dim, taking advantage of natural light. 

The interior décor features new ECO friendly polished concrete floors that require no waxing.

All accent light fixtures use LEDs and the chain recycles all its plastic from pallet wrapping and cardboard boxes

"We currently operate two Kingsport locations and have received tremendous support from the area residents.  We are extremely excited to be opening a third location and premiering some exciting new concepts for our company," said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. 

The location is Food City's second green prototype -- the first opened in Morristown last year.
