Publix Opens Second Store in Fredericksburg, Virginia
FREDERICKSBURG, VA - Publix is going ham for the Fredericksburg, Virginia, market. In addition to its existing Fredericksburg store, the grocer also recently signed a lease to up its store count in the city to two. Currently, Publix’s only Fredericksburg location is its northernmost location.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Publix signed a lease on Monday, July 1, for a new location at the Embrey Mill Town Center. The store is slated to occupy 48,000 square feet and employ upwards of 130 people.
Late last year, Publix was making moves in other parts of Virginia, including Carytown, Virginia— seemingly fulfilling its plan of opening single-store locations in key cities.
Publix’s second Fredericksburg-based store will open in early 2021.
