Publix widens N.C. expansion

September 23rd, 2013

LAKELAND, Fla. – Publix Super Markets Inc. has unveiled plans to expand its entry into North Carolina, saying it will enter the Winston-Salem market and add another location in the state’s Mecklenburg County.

The company says the Winston-Salem unit will be a 49,000-square-foot Publix supermarket with covered parking below the store. It is slated to open in 2015.

Meanwhile, Publix’s third store in Mecklenburg County will be in Cornelius.

Also scheduled to measure 49,000-square-feet, the supermarket will include a drive-through pharmacy. It is expected to open in late 2014.

"We continue to deliver on our promise of serving the great state of North Carolina by adding yet another county to our market area," a company spokeswoman says.

Earlier this year Publix announced plans to open its first five stores in North Carolina — including two in Greater Charlotte — over the next two years.
