February 29, 2012NASHVILLE, GA – Harveys unveiled a new store in Lake City, Fla., located at 4506 SW Heritage Oaks Circle, on Wednesday, Feb. 29. The grand opening festivities started at 8:30 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony (see photo below) and free product samplings throughout the day. "We are dedicated to being Lake City’s hometown grocer providing excellent value on a wide variety of quality products combined with exceptional customer care," said Barry Robinson, vice president of Harveys and Reid's stores. "We are excited to offer local produce, custom-cut meat and a custom bakery to our Lake City, Fla., customers." Jeremy Wolf, who has worked at Food Lion for seven years, will serve as the store manager of the 34,000 square-foot facility. This store will employ 45 team members, with eight new positions being added as a result of the transition to Harveys Supermarket. The store replaced a former Food Lion that was in the same location. The hometown grocer offers a wide selection of groceries, including an expanded fresh produce department, full-service deli/bakery with special-order in-store decorated cakes, specialty meats, cheeses and breads, and ready-to-eat lunch and dinner buffet, such as home-style, freshly cooked meals. The store also offers a variety of convenience services for customers including greeting cards, a floral section, Western Union service, Rug Doctor rentals, Blue Rhino propane tank exchange, postage stamps, and “KeyOsk,” ATM and Coinstar machines. Harveys will begin normal operating hours on Thursday, March 1. Stores will open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays through Saturdays.
