Town & Country starts major remodel

Ray Grisham, with Ray Grisham Construction Concrete, operates an excavator Monday as he and Greg Simpson, with Simpson Concrete, center, and employee Jared Haas, right, begin the work to remodel Gainesville’s Town & Country Supermarket. The men would later fill the excavated tracks with concrete as the first steps in creating the floor and walls of a big new freezer and cooler area that will become part of the completely remodeled building.

Town & Country Supermarket spokesman Matt Montgomery said the remodeling project that started Monday will transform the Gainesville store inside and out and will include new exterior signage. He said the goal is to finish the project in the “first half of the year,” barring any delays.

Work started Monday on the major remodeling project that will give Gainesville’s Town & Country Supermarket a new appearance inside and out, representing what Town & Country spokesman Matt Montgomery called “a significant investment in the store and thus the community in which we are fortunate to serve.”

The remodeling will give the front exterior of the current building a facelift, with new signage and decor elements, and it will include what Montgomery described as an “update/reset of pretty much all store departments (grocery, dairy, frozen, meat bakery, deli and produce).”

New customer bathrooms will be added, and new flooring and check-lane fixtures also will be installed, along with new display cases for produce, dairy, meat and frozen food. The ceiling will be replaced, with updated store lighting added; the service counter will also be updated. The bakery/deli register area also will be remodeled.

Montgomery said the company hopes to have the remodel completed “in the first half of the year, but ... there are sometimes delays that are beyond our control.”
