Publix Super Markets Inc. Announces Opening of South End Location

Publix Super Markets Inc. has set a opening date for its South End location. The Lakeland, Fla., grocer says the 55,000-square-foot store at 2222 South Blvd. will open at 7 a.m. on April 18. It is in the Shops at Southline complex. This will be the first Publix in the South End and uptown corridor. The urban environment has resulted in some design differences, including parking below the store and elevator access. But the product offerings as well as the look and feel will be similar to those of other Publix stores in the region. The location allows Publix to serve an area of Charlotte that lacks a traditional supermarket. It also is near residential areas and the business community.

A Family in Alabama Sues Publix After Tree Nut Allergy Kills Boy

A family in Alabama is reported to have sued Publix Super Markets on charges their son, suffering from tree nut allergy, died after consuming a cookie that didn't list food allergens. Last June, 11-year-old Landon Wood died of anaphylactic shock after eating a mislabeled 'Chocolate Chew' cookie from a store in Clarksville, Tennessee. The death could have been avoided had Publix listed the ingredients on the bakery bag. Wood was in Clarksville along with his family to visit his aunt. At the bakery counter, there were no signs at or behind-the-counter about allergens. When the family returned home, Wood had few bites of the cookie and his mouth was burning, as per the lawsuit. Wood was given Benadryl and epinephrine was administered to his thigh, but his condition worsened. Wood's throat swelled on his way to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where doctors failed to resuscitate him. The family is suing Publix for mental and emotional distress and suffering, as well as punitive damages. The lawsuit was filed in Tennessee Middle District Court in Nashville.
