So where is the distribution center that services the stores in Columbia? Could that one go to Fort Mill as well?

They currently service those stores from Atlanta, they would service Fort Mill from there to start.

God I'd be so happy if Publix came here. I moved to NC 4 years ago and miss it terribly. Harris Teeter is nice, but pricey. We have a great Bi-Lo near us. It's a super Bi-Lo and it's beautiful, very well maintained, but I know there are Bi-Los that aren't pretty. But if Publix came here I'd drop Bi-Lo in a minute.

Would love to see this happen. I heard they are opening one in the Fort Mill area (I think)?
Although I agree with the above posters, there are so many HT's I don't know if they would be able to compete.

All they need is to draw off enough customers to support the number of stores that they build.

My sister in GA's stores are Publix and I really like them. They were looking at a property in Fort Mill (at Gold Hill Road and Pleasant Rd -- just off I-77) but neighbors protested the store going onto what they said was too small a property. Hoping they bring a store to the FM area.. I'd love anothe choice besides Bi-Lo, Food Lion (both yuck for my vote), HT and Lowes.
Thanks for keeping us posted.... will look forward to hearing!

The neighborhood around the Gold Hill location has already approved it, as of back in October.

I guess since we heard they can not open one store because it would be too difficult with the distribution center being so far away (Atlanta or wherever?)
that the delay in the Gold Hill Road store, is they have to secure the Indian Land property (and any local approval), as well as a location for the distribution center and a Charlotte store. The article I read, said if they could not open at least 3 stores up this way, to justify a distribution center, then they would not open any stores.

We were told in a recent Manager's meeting by The President of the Company that they are not going into Charlotte. I guess only time will tell. I for one want it bad.

if that is true then no store for York County. Because the story I read said they would only come here if there were enough stores, 3+, to support a distribution center. They do not want to service 1-2 stores from Atlanta or where-ever.

I used to like Publix here in Atlanta, however they are much more expensive than Kroger now, and often they're lacking in selection.

My biggest gripe with Publix is that their store brands are loaded with trans fats. Refrigerator biscuits have tons more than Pillsbury, and Publix's cookies like oatmeal cookies and crackers have trans fats. That's ridiculous, no other foods like that have them anymore. Shame on Publix.
