From Charlotte, take 77 south to 26 east in Columbia. Stay on 26 east until you get to the junction of 95 south. Then stay on 95 south until you get home to Florida.

Wow, thats exactly the kind of comment that I used to read on the Miami forum when NY'ers mentioned missing stuff from there. Seems kinda closed minded to me, kind of like "love it or leave it"! The way I look at it, if Publix comes into this market hard, the competition will either raise their standards, or fail. I dont think this is as much of an issue with HT as it is with Lowes and FLion.

Pretty much, yeah.

Just to add to this go visit the HT on 160 that is now really quiet as there is now a super walmart less than 1 mile away.

Once did a direct comparison, on $49 worth from HT only spent $37 in walmart for the same items.

I lived in Pembrooke Pines for 6 years and when I got here what i was most impressed with was the choice that you have of groceries stores (trader Joes, Bloom, Harris Teeter, Word Fare) Publix will not have a bit of a chance here. Publix does not even come close to any of these. Maybe to Bi-Lo.

Default Publix

I was told that Publix will be in the Knoxville and North Carolina market within 5 years. They are already in Chattanooga now. Expect them to continue growing their operations in the Southern States.

In Hilton Head, we had a Publix and Harris Teeter across the street from each other.

UPDATE :

Our initial contact was met with courtesy, and after the person we spoke with brought it up, Publix has no plans to expand into this area at the current time. However, due to the response of this thread and other factors, we are continuing to attempt to build a case for them to consider Charlotte.

The location that first brought this up is the corner of Eastfield Rd and Ellenwood, just past the Wallace "farm". There is a shopping center anchored by a grocery store being built as I type, yet they do not have a grocery chain yet. There are HT's on two sides, a Bloom opening closeby, and two existing Lowe's and one Bi-Lo nearby. A Food Lion is also near. Obviously, this leaves few other alternatives. I live in the area, and while some folks in Highland Creek likely have their habits, Lowe's has really taken off there, and the growth in homes in that area has been nothing less of phenomenal, so I believe even a new chain would be able to pull a reasonable clientele from all the influx of people moving in who have not yet established a firm pattern. If you do not live in that area, it would be worth driving by there and Christenbury Rd, which connects to Concord Mills Blvd. The growth is amazing.

I will continue to keep you posted as to our progress.
