Publix Announces First Store in Winston-Salem and Third Location for
LAKELAND, Fla. -- August 23, 2013
Today, Publix Super Markets Inc. announced it will enter the Winston-Salem
market and add a third location in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.
The Winston-Salem store, located at 34 Miller Street, will be a
49,000-square-foot Publix supermarket with covered parking below the store.
Opening is scheduled for 2015.
The Cornelius store, located in Mecklenburg County, will be at West Catawba
and Jetton Road in the Magnolia Plaza. The 49,000-square-foot Publix
supermarket, with drive-thru pharmacy, is planned to open in late 2014;
however, grand opening will depend on several factors, including permitting
and completion of the store’s construction.
“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. “We are more than your
community grocer — we are your neighbors and look forward to sharing the
Publix spirit with you.”

state of North Carolina as it strives to meet and exceed the expectations of
the communities it will serve.
