EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — August 14, 2012 — (NYSE:GE) — Food City (Abingdon, Va.) operates 104 supermarket outlets in the tri-state regions of Southeast Kentucky, Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee.

Bright, sparkling coolers now command shoppers’ attention while Food City will see a more than $300,000 drop in annual case lighting costs based on an electricity rate of $.11 per kilowatt hour and having the case lights on eighteen hours each day.
