Six more permits were pulled last month totaling $11.415 million. It looks like the three other outparcels are about to get started:

1265 INTERSTATE DR STE 201-210 $852,600.00
1265 INTERSTATE DR STE 211-220 $768,036.00
1255 INTERSTATE DR STE 101-110 $875,046.00

and three more anchors:

1265 INTERSTATE DR STE 121 $1,914,261.00
1265 INTERSTATE DR STE 123 $5,395,566.00
1265 INTERSTATE DR STE 301 $1,609,500.00

I wish I knew which stores were which suites. Anyway, this is fun to watch.

These aren't the three outparcels, but the three remaining smaller freestanding shops, correct? I'm excited to see what happens with those huge outparcels.

You're right, I meant the freestanding shops. not the outparcels. The sight plan shows only four freestanding buildings, so all of them should now be under construction. The one next to Publix was started a couple of months ago. I'll try to get by there today and get some pictures.

The parcel already started backs up fairly close to Walnut; so, I would presume none of those are restaurants as they have single back doors not allowing for a ton of product loaded or even stored back there.

Here's a picture I took yesterday of what you're talking about:




Looking at Publix and the drive-thru pharmacy window from Walnut Ave:




I took this picture from the Cheddar's parking lot:

Publix can't get here fast enough for me. Couldn't make it on our Thursday grocery shopping, so went to Kroger on Friday afternoon. Couldn't find a parking space so we decided to stop by in the evening after the concert at the University. Got our groceries and on the way out, I kept thinking that the total seemed high. Sure enough, I bought a head of red leaf lettuce and got charged for 14 of them. Spun the cart around and went back. Yep, it's wrong, but nothing can be done about it as the service desk is closed. So I have to slog back over today to get credit for the 13 heads of lettuce I did not buy.

Just my opinion, but I think Publix is going to eat Kroger's lunch.

I share that opinion. I was living in Atlanta when Publix came swooping into town and caught Kroger completely off guard. Publix now has something like 150 stores in the Atlanta area and is now the number 1 grocer in Atlanta. When I go to Kroger in Cookeville, I look around in amazement that they're not doing anything to get ready for the Publix invasion. It's not the workers, as I've found the Kroger employees in Cookeville to be very friendly and helpful (which is probably more a reflection of Cookeville and not Kroger). But the store is dated and crowded. Even though I've seen an increase in more "luxury" items at the Cookeville Kroger than even from a few years ago, Publix is going to clean their clock. I think Kroger's saving grace is its fuel pumps.

I tried a sub sandwich at Kroger, and it was awful. The bread had all the taste and texture of a kitchen sponge. But I will gladly park 1000 feet away and wait in line for a Publix sub. That, plus Publix's superior bakery, deli, and excellent store label products will be a rude awakening for Kroger.

Our regular routine in Florida was to order a Publix sub online to be ready in 45 minutes. Drive over to the store, load up the cart with our groceries, stop by the deli to pick up our sub which was waiting for us, check out and head home.

Easy, peasy, great selections of subs and all were good.

I never got subs at Kroger when I was there, but here, Harris Teeter, which is owned by Kroger, has pretty good subs, at good prices. Ironic, because most things there are way overpriced. Every Friday full subs are $4.99, everyday, 2 1/2 subs are $3.49 are when you buy 7.5 subs you get a free one. We have 43 credits built up for that right now, so buy 1 more full sub and were up to 3 free ones. Its walking distance for me there, so it was great for a cheap lunch when I wasn't working full time. They also use Boars Head like Publix. It's amazing having so many grocery choices, at least 7 chains within 5 miles plus a Spouts opening in April.

I'm sure Kroger is doing their planning for the Publix opening, bet they;ll start being very aggressive a few weeks before Publix opens.

I don't know how I missed this sign yesterday, but I snapped a picture of it this afternoon while coming out of Olive Garden.
