Followup article from the DR states the following:

Quote:
The 49,000-square-foot grocery store is expected to open in 2017, Brody said.

“Greenville itself is an attractive market to a company like Publix, and the location is ideal,” he said. ”It’s a heavily trafficked area, it’s located across the street from the mall, and there isn’t a big grocery store presence in that area.

“It’s a win-win for everyone,” Brody said.

Brody said BrodyCo plans to renovate the shopping center with a new facade, parking lot, lighting and landscaping.

“We will be demolishing the Kmart building and several others,” he said. ”We are going to bring a much more modern look to this project.
Looks like an extensive remodel for much of the center will happen. That's great news.

Truly great news. Perhaps we may be able to look forward to a little bit of roadwork on the Blvd in that area too?

That's probably wishful thinking.

Sounds to me like this won't be the only Publix in the Greenville area.

I agree that this is an ideal place for Publix...crossroads of 3 major roads....right next to ECU athletic complexes.

Will be great to see what else comes to that center to follow Publix.

I don't know if Brody o owns the other businesses in that lot like the old final score restaurant and the spot where the guy washes and details cars now but it would be nice to tear down that old final score building and maybe the building beside it that I can't remember what it is.

Regardless this is a huge improvement for this area, one that was really on the decline well before Kmart closed. Kmart closing was the best thing for that shopping area.

Publix can easily operate at least two stores in Pitt County. Winterville and East Tenth Street/North Carolina 33 East could be possibilities for additional stores.

I would be curious to know the specific supermarket store count in Pitt County. I think Food Lion has ten stores, Harris Teeter has three stores, Walmart Neighborhood Market has three stores, and Piggly Wiggly has one store. Kroger, Lowe's Foods, Winn-Dixie appeared to have one store each prior to their departures. Walmart has three Supercenter hypermarket stores and one Sam's Club wholesale club, and recently closed one Express store.

I wish they would remove the stop light in front of the mall. Make that entrance right in, right out on both sides and put in a nice median.

Ayden, Grifton and Farmville all have a Piggly Wiggly. There is a Sav-A-Lot on Dickinson that opened not too long ago.

Plus Fresh Market.

Aldi (limited assortment), Save-A-Lot (limited assortment), and The Fresh Market (specialty gourmet) are food retailers not counted as supermarkets. Lidl, another limited assortment grocer, should open by 2018.

Tropicana Supermarket, directly across the street from the airport.

The last time I drove on Greenville Boulevard was back in 2009 and traffic was terrible even then. I can only imagine what it's going to be like once that shopping center gets redone.
