The Publix that opened in our old BiLo is super nice. And for grins, I went across the street to the HT they are remodeling for the simple reason to keep up with the Joneses. It's going to be quite plush when they're done.

Seven years was long enough I guess.

For a 2 and half million dollar structure completed in 2008, I would think not.

It's not like it went out of business. I'm sure they got a good price from Publix.

They (Bi-Lo) got out while they still could. Before their market share continued to decline in the wake of Walmart, Harris Teeter, and now Publix. Getting revenue from Publix for the sale of those underperforming stores was the best strategy.

I went in last week and liked this layout the best out of all the Publixes I have been in so far here. It's so easy to navigate! Will be going to this one from now on when I need cuban stuff!

Overall yes, but I was more talking about that particular store. The locations that Bi-Lo sold to Publix were probably some of their higher volume stores.

Yes, but for competitive reasons, I believe Bi-Lo felt it was their best strategy to leave. Publix entering the market was a game changer, and we saw Harris Teeter sell out to Kroger as another indication.

It was a win for both Publix and Bi-Lo. Bi-Lo got mostly out of a market where they were losing share, and Publix got a jumpstart on their brand new division by getting some good store locations.

The one in Ballantyne has a larger selection than the one in Matthews. I'm hoping the one in Mint Hill will be more like the one in Ballantyne.
