KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Food City is looking to add some new employees to its company of grocery stores and distribution centers in the East Tennessee area.

Food City is planning to hire 1,200 people through a company-wide hiring event this week. The grocery chain celebrated the opening of several new stores as well as expanded services like curbside pick-up. This means they need more people to fill new positions.
