LAKELAND, Fla. — Publix Super Markets here on Friday disclosed plans for additional North Carolina locations in Winston-Salem and Cornelius.
The Winston-Salem store, located at 34 Miller St., will be a 49,000-square-foot Publix supermarket with covered parking below the store. The opening is scheduled for 2015.
The Cornelius store, located in Mecklenburg County, will be at West Catawba and Jetton Road in the Magnolia Plaza and will also measure 49,000 square feet. It will include a drive-through pharmacy. It is tentatively scheduled 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,” said Maria Brous, Publix media and community relations director.
Publix said it continues to aggressively look for additional locations throughout the state. It announced last year that it would enter North Carolina after years of consumer and industry speculation about its plans there.
Publix previously announced its first five planned North Carolina locations:
• Ballantyne, located at Providence Road West and Johnston Road, opening in early 2014;
• Greater Charlotte (two stores), located at the intersection of South Boulevard and Iverson Way, and at the intersection of Matthews Mint Hill Road and Lawyers Road, opening in early 2015 and late 2014, respectively;
• Cary, located at the northeast corner of High House and Davis, opening in late 2014; and
• Asheville, located at the southeast corner of Hendersonville and Overlook, opening in 2015.
