Publix has an "unwritten agreement" with Ingles not to cross into the North Carolina territory. But who keeps agreements unwritten or written these days. I use to work for Publix back in the day and I can tell you this Harris Teeter is far better except in the sub department, Publix subs are awesome.

Well, Bob Ingle recently died & his son has taken over. If there was an unwritten agreement, it's 6 feet under now.

That said, the son announced, when he took over, that this year there will be less building replacement stores for the old stores & building new stores, to allow them to take stock of where they are.

Darn it, if they needed 3 locations to open up, anywhere in York County would work, and Indian Land too.
I really wanted Publix to have a closer location to Charlotte, it's the only grocer I know that carries a guaranteed orange roughy supply fresh or frozen besides Lowes. HT, you'd call around to see if it carries it.

I wish we knew one way or the other, after all the trouble they went to get the zoning in Fort Mill.

I do not have the story handy, but the story I read back in October, maybe, said if their move into the Charlotte area (and that includes York County), was not sufficient enough to support a local warehouse, then they would scrap the plans. If they can not build in Mecklenberg County, then I doubt York County gets 3 stores, so it seems we should assume no Publix.

If we do that, and there is one we will have a positive surprise.

I'm assuming they won't, based on the news.

Unless there is some issue getting the land for the 3+ locations.

I was told that they would definitely go into Charlotte. They could easily go into eastern Gaston County for a 3rd store, then enter Mecklenburg from the north end, say in Huntersville. They supposedly will serve Upstate SC out of Charlotte, which would free up the current distribution center in GA which has taken on a chain in middle TN, which Publix has acquired.

Not sure if this has been discussed as I didn't go through the entire thread, but there is now a sign up in Indian Land that says "Coming Soon: Publix".

Bear with me - I've only lived here a week! I was headed up 521 from Belair. It was on the right before you get to Lowe's. I think it was around the middle/high school... that intersection maybe.

If harv0621, on page 18, is correct, there

will not be

a store in Indian Land or anywhere else.

Publix has pulled out and cancelled the plans, if that info on page 18 of this thread is correct.

Only time will tell.
