A few photos from southwest Virginia 2006

Stores form Galax, VA and Max Meadows, VA 2006.
The Food Country looks like it may have been a Winn Dixie although the inside looks like a Food Lion layout.
I think the Food City was always a Food City.

The Food Country looks more like Food Lion than Winn-Dixie, Winn-Dixie generally stuck to red and brown brick. It looks newer than the typical Winn-Dixie of that size, Food Lion's typical stores is still in the 25000-30000 sq. ft range. The Food City is typical of K-VA-T Food City stores in Southwest Virgina, Northeastern Tennessee and Southeast Kentucky. The third store looks vaguely like an old Colonial/Big Star or Piggly Wiggly.

Food City is the leader in the Tri-Cities of Tennessee-Virginia and sponsors the Bristol 500. Recent acquisitions from Winn-Dixie and BiLo have given them a major presence in Knoxville, TN. Food Lions presence in the same region is spotty and scattered, having contracted its presence in the late 90's.

I've been in that store and it is definitely a former Piggly Wiggly. There's even some old PW signage inside.

By the way, these stores are in southwest Virginia, not southeast Virginia.
