A story --not available online --in the Mar 14th 2018 State Port Pilot says that new floodplain maps would go into effect this August and "the change is also expected to spur construction of the Publix supermarket and associated stores off E Oak Island Dr at SE 50th and 51st streets."

I have heard several in SJP say Lowes is too expensive and they are looking forward to a grocery store that is more reasonable.

Its going to be a relatively small store (28,000 sf versus Lowe's at 40,000 sf), with an emphasis on prepared and take out foods, so it may not be all that attractive to people for all their shopping needs.

Would Publix and Oak Island Market Place be projected to open in 2019?

Lowe's Foods has been struggling with store operations, pricing, and necessities. I doubt expanding into additional markets in South Carolina after failing in Charlotte is a wise idea.

I wonder if Publix has considered or is considering opening a store near Saint James Plantation.

And more existing grocery stores. Perhaps you would like to open one since you know the market so well.
