Publix entering Winston-Salem, North Carolina, market, with first store opening scheduled for 2015, adding third location in state's Mecklenberg County, to open in late 2014; supermarket chain continuing to look for additional North Carolina locations

LAKELAND, Florida , August 23, 2013 (press release) – 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.”

Publix continues to aggressively look for additional locations throughout the state of North Carolina as it strives to meet and exceed the expectations of the communities it will serve.

Ballantyne, located at Providence Road West and Johnston Road, opening in early 2014
Greater Charlotte (2), 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.
