Publix Announces Two New Stores
ALABAMA & SOUTH CAROLINA - Grocery expansion never seems to stop as retail chains across the globe continue to press the gas on growth. Publix is one of the names that’s been circling our expansion radar as of late, recently revealing two new locations in separate states are in the works.
According to AL.com, the grocer has officially announced that it will open a new store in Liberty Park, Alabama, on June 3. Standing at 48,100 square feet, the new store will create 135 new jobs in the community.
“Our customers have been looking forward to having a new Publix in their neighborhood,” Brenda Reid, Community Relations Manager for Publix’s Atlanta Division, said. “Our associates will continue to offer the best shopping experience possible for our customers by following recommended guidelines outlined by the CDC and the State of Alabama.”
In addition to the new Alabama-based store, Publix has also confirmed that a new location is coming to Moncks Corner, South Carolina, according to Live5News.com.
Publix Community Relations Manager Kim Reynolds disclosed to the news source that the company has officially signed a lease for the facility. Although we can confirm that the store will stand at 48,000 square feet, no official opening date was disclosed.
