There is a sign announcing a Publix to be built at the intersection of Weddington Road and George Liles Parkway in Concord.

That Bi-Lo conversion store was part of Publix 'invading' Harris Teeter's home space, Matthews...and doing it quickly. Also, it SO fit the correct demographics of that area. I will await, patiently, the Mint Hill or Iverson Way stores. I've gotten tired of driving 25 miles to SC for my Publix 'fix'.
If any of you use Facebook, there are several NC Publix pages on there which contain MANY of us SOFL transplants who grew up with Publix as our only good grocery experience. Some good info there about what stores are coming to cities and when, and all in one or two places. One is We Love Publix in NC and another is Bring Publix to NC.

I do thought it was a pretty "in your face" move for them to move right smack in the back yard of Harri Teeter's corporate office. But that space ended up being a great space for them. it was much nicer than the Harris Teeter store that is across the street from it - but it was also newer and shiny and like I said - a flagship BiLo store. BiLo never did very well though - they couldn't really compete against HT. But Publix will do just fine. And with the remodel that's going on at the HT, I think HT will continue to do just fine as well. From someone who didn't grow up with Publix ... and for that matter, I didn't grow up with HT either, but I've been here a long time ... there's not much difference in the stores IMO. I went to Publix again this week, and there weren't people falling all over themselves to talk to me this week. All the people they brought in for the grand opening are gone. Service was still very good, but so is HT.

I have no close Publix higher-ups in the family any longer, but I do know that Publix does NOTHING that is not planned out well in advance. I was told that there would be approx 45 new stores in the NC/SC line-up in the next few years and don't doubt that one bit, either. I have no idea where they will be, but you can bet they are not afraid to move right on top of Harris Teeter and because of all their FL followers they will succeed in this area. I, honestly, do not see their prices less than HT, but I DO like their store set-up, cleanliness and friendly, customer is #1 attitude, and I do not see that at the Cotswold store unless I have a return at the main C/S desk. I'm now on a fixed income and do half my shopping at Walmart only because of their prices, and live to see Publix beat them price-wise. I could write a book about the atrocities of Walmart; possibly several!
Still, it's nice to have a piece of 'home' that I personally fought for the past 27 yrs to get here. I await the closer Iverson Way and Mint Hill Publix stores opening! Cuban bread and Cuban subs...heaven!

The Cuban subs at Publix are indeed very good, especially when heated in the microwave and topped with Publix deli mustard and mayo. And the fried chicken at Publix is very good also.

Directly across the street from Sun Valley High School. I'm not sure if that's good or bad for the shopping center.

Thanks for sharing this. I can't wait. I've been going to Matthews Publix. This will be so much closer.
