ERWIN — Food City executives and Unicoi County officials got together with invited guest for pre-grand opening celebration Tuesday night at the new Erwin Food City.

Food City President and CEO Steven Smith introduced the guests to the department managers at the 132nd store in the Food City chain then invited everyone inside for a tour and a large round of free food samples.

Smith thanked Erwin leaders for convincing Food City to come to Erwin and announced the 44,000-square-foot Food City store now employs more than 125 people, most of whom live in Unicoi County, and will bring more shops and more jobs to Erwin as its adjoining shopping center is completed over the coming months.
