Publix continues to expand in the Richmond region
Publix, a Lakeland-Fla.-based grocery, has opened its eighth store in the Richmond region and its first in Chesterfield County.
The 63,557-square-foot Publix at Harbour Pointe Shopping Center at 13700 Hull Street Road opened in Chesterfield on Saturday. Meanwhile, the company has reportedly paid $1.9 million for land for another store in a mixed-use development that would be called Publix at Cosby Village. The six-acre site is located at 15930 Hull Street Rd. in Chesterfield.
Publix also opened a store in Colonial Heights last week on Nov. 1 at 3007 Boulevard. The company has scheduled a groundbreaking ceremony on Wed., Nov. 8, for construction to begin on a store in Hanover County where Publix plans to build in the Brandy Creek Commons development on an 18-acre site on Mechanicsville Turnpike and Brandy Creek Drive.
Publix opened its first store in the Richmond region in July. It entered the market last year when it bought up many of the Martin’s stores that had to be sold off as a result of the merger between Ahold and Delhaize Group.
