Huntsville, Ala. — Marathon Realty Corp., an affiliate of grocer Food City, has purchased two acres in Huntsville from The Beach Co. The site is located between The Foundry, The Range and Stovehouse along Governors Drive and will be connected to the developments via a 10-foot-wide pedestrian sidewalk. A real estate subsidiary of Food City parent company K-VA-T Food Stores Inc., Marathon Realty plans to break ground on the new store next quarter, with the opening scheduled for early 2025. Last year Marathon Realty entered into a development agreement with the City of Huntsville to develop six new Food City grocery stores in the greater Huntsville area.
