Publix Opens First Store in Northern Virginia
STAFFORD, VA - New store openings always catch our attention here at AndNowUKnow. But when we see Florida-based Publix branching out of the Sunshine State, our curiosity heightens. Recently, the retailer opened its doors in Northern Virginia for the first time.
Sitting at 48,387 square feet, the new store opened in mid-December in Stafford, Virginia, in the Embrey Mill Town Center shopping plaza.
According to theburn, the retailer is focusing on growing its brand in the Richmond area, where today there are 15 Publix stores. With expansion ever on the horizon, this trade news writer thinks it’s only a matter of time before enough warehouses and transportation routes open up to support the retailer’s new growth.
Local news source InsideNoVa reports Doug Anglin will serve as store manager, who has 14 years of service with Publix. The new location will have a produce department that carries both organic and conventionally grown fruits and vegetables, with a selection of exotic choices from around the world and the locally grown season’s best.
