I'll probably stop in the new Kroger just to see what it's like, but I plan on darkening the doorsteps at Publix a lot more.

There's something interesting in today's paper. At the end of the article about a solar energy company building a solar facility in the Highlands Business Park, it says there are two more companies looking at locating in the park, code named "Orlando" and "Bottle." Any idea what they are?

I love Kroger because it has more own store brand items than Publix; I love Publix for their deli, bakery, items you don't normally find at Kroger and their BOGOs.

The Kroger Marketplace, or even a much larger Kroger, would have many more items and varieties, upgraded bakery and deli, any new Kroger will have a Starbucks...a Marketplace would have a pizza bistro, cheese section and perhaps even a growler fill station (Kroger is wise to begin planning new stores with these growler fill stations in order to tap (pardon the pun) into the craft beer market share...just like picking up a bottle of wine for the items you're shopping for your dinner recipe....pick up a growler of finely crafted beer). Even our Kroger currently sells growler jugs.

The new Kroger will do this one thing for sure: make it easier to navigate while grocery shopping because Jefferson Street Kroger is TOO crowded.

I just got back from braving Kroger. The only parking places I could find were on the other side of that little building that houses Jersey Mike's and Marco's Pizza. And, of course, the inside of Kroger was like a zoo. I tried finding a manager to ask about the new Kroger, but they were all way too busy. You're right that Cookeville really needs another Kroger. And you're also right about the Starbucks thing. The only Starbucks on that part of town is at the university. With everything else you described at a Kroger Marketplace, I bet the new one will be a Marketplace.

Many newer Publix also have Starbucks inside, so, even with the existing Starbucks on Interstate Dr, there is a good chance that the Publix in the Shoppes could have one. They'd serve 2 different markets.

I didn't know that about Publix. The Starbucks on Interstate Drive looks like it's constantly busy. I've driven by it before and have seen the line for the drive-thru extend out into Interstate Drive. I'm sure some would love to see another Starbucks in the area.

The Chamber of Commerce CEO mentioned in his monthly column in yesterday's paper that there will be an announcement this spring of 1,000 new jobs coming to town. I can't believe that something this big has been kept so quiet. Does anyone have an idea what this project is?

He also said that this year should be a record breaking year for construction projects around town and the most construction at Tennessee Tech since the building boom TTU experienced in the 1960s. So far there have been over 80 new home permits issued in Cookeville in January and February of this year compared to just 14 in January-February 2016. And that doesn't include all the new homes going up in Algood which has a couple dozen townhouses going up off Phillips Cemetery Road and another couple dozen off of 4th Ave.

The only rumor I've been hearing for a few months is an Amazon distribution center. But no one has confirmed that.

In the twenty or odd so Publix I've visited in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Florida, I've never seen a Starbucks within a Publix. Of course that doesn't mean Publix isn't going with this initiative; however, most of the stores I've visited are newer stores.

I just checked the Publix web site, and it looks like only 6 of their stores have a Starbucks. So yeah I guess it would be unlikely that they would put a Starbucks in their Cookeville store although it doesn't hurt to hope.

That would be pretty cool if it's true. Amazon pays pretty well at its Murfreesboro and Wilson County distribution centers, at least for distribution center jobs it pays well. I wonder when we'll find out for sure what it is.

Starbucks | Publix Super Markets


The Ballantyne Publix is the one right down the street from me where the opened the Starbucks in January. It's been a big success, and according to some of the managers around my store ( I work at a different Publix right down the road from there), plans are being made for future stores to include more Starbucks. Don't know if they'd include Cookeville in that on not, but definitely as they go into a new market in Virgina. Especially because Publix will be competing in the same market with Wegmans for the 1st time in a few areas.
