Publix Closes in on New Jacksonville, Florida, Location

Publix Closes in on New Jacksonville, Florida, Location

Friday, October 4th, 2019

Although the Florida-based retailer has set its sights on expanding in new markets, it is still maintaining its presence in its home state. The grocer has recently advanced its plans for a new store 17 years in the making.

Publix has been thinking about opening a new store in East San Marco for nearly two decades, but is taking new steps to further the project, according to News4Jax. The new location is set to be a part of a retail and foodservice development, which many locals are eagerly awaiting.

“I think it is a good opinion to open Publix and more stores or restaurants here since this will offer more job opportunities for the people and for the people who live in San Marco," resident Hajir Aldaod commented. "They don’t have to drive all that way to get their groceries. They can just go grab their groceries.”

A town hall meeting was held to discuss the details of the new shopping center and answer questions. Although many residents are excited at the prospect of new retail options, others were concerned about how the new Publix location might change the neighborhood.

“This is a historic area, and I have always loved it for all the old buildings. I just can’t see a Publix being here," local resident, Patricia Botz said.
