Hank’s Market grocery store plans to open at the former Food Lion in east Oak Ridge by August 25.
Hank’s Market #45 will be at 691 Emory Valley Road.
The company has responded to several queries from local residents on its Facebook page. Here’s one response:
Our Oak Ridge store is scheduled to open later next month (August). We are hoping to have the doors open on the 25th of August.”
Food Lion confirmed its plans to close its Oak Ridge store in June 2014. The company said it was not renewing its lease on the property.
In a flyer posted at the Oak Ridge store on Sunday, July 19, Hank’s said it is accepting applications.
Meanwhile, the spaces where Curves and Briarcliff Realty used to be next to Food Lion appear to be under renovation also, although it’s not clear what is planned there.
Curves has moved to Ridgeway Center behind Security Square, and The Real Estate Office, which was formerly Briarcliff Realty, has moved to a new location inside the Citizens First Bank building on Oak Ridge Turnpike.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
