BREAKING: Publix Confirms Asheville Opening
It's official, Publix is moving into Asheville.
News 13 first told you about the supermarket's plans to open a store in Asheville last night. This morning, the company released their official statement:
Today, Publix Super Markets Inc. announced it will enter the Asheville and Cary markets in North Carolina.
The Asheville store, located in Buncombe County, will be at the southeast corner of Hendersonville and Overlook. The 49,000-square-foot Publix supermarket will include a drive-thru pharmacy and is expected to open in 2015.
The Cary store, located in Wake County, will be at the northeast corner of High House and Davis in the Bradford Shopping Center. The 49,000-square-foot Publix supermarket grand opening date will depend on several factors, including permitting and completion of the stores construction; however, the opening is tentatively planned for late 2014.
Weve made a commitment to North Carolina and its residents to bring our level of stellar service and quality products to market in order to provide customers with the superior shopping experience they deserve, said Maria Brous, Publix media and community relations director. As company owners, we are passionately focused on our customers. We believe that if we take care of our associates, they in turn will take care of our customers, and together we will make our communities a better place. This is our culture, and we are excited about sharing it with North Carolina just as we have in the other five states in which we operate.
