The Publix locations in Knoxville that I have been to have their own coffee and gelato shop inside, Boarshead bistro station, and expanded cheese and bakery sections. They need to upgrade the stores here like that to attract more shoppers. We have three new Krogers planned in Murfeeesboro, two being relocations and one being a new store on highway 99, all are supposed to be superstores. Kroger has done a great job adding the upgrades to keep customers in the store longer. I agree that the new Cookeville store needs to be a supersize format. Cookeville would be the obvious choice for better retail options between Lebanon and Knoxville.

Just as a followup to the Publix/Starbucks question, here's a link to the Charlotte Observer article where they talk about Publix's plans to gradually replace the Publix cafes with Starbucks. I'm sure that's an extremely long term long, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to see most new stores that start going into planning in the near future to have the Starbucks from day 1. It's been very successful here.

This veers off the Publix/Starbucks topic, but still on the development and rumors around. Does anyone have info on what
is happening on HWY 56 heading south off of 40? We were leaving out, and on the west side of 56 where the trees were
cleared out last year there was a dozer, and another piece of equipment in the field, and when we came back the dozer
was pushing a fair amount of dirt. There was a truck, but vehicles were in my way when I got to where I could read the
name on the side.

That's very cool. I can understand why Publix is doing this, although I hope they keep their gelato stands. I'm going to be very curious to see just what the Cookeville Publix is going to be like. Since the new Kroger is likely going to contain a Starbucks, I bet Publix will need to do the same.

I don't have any official info, but a good friend of mine who grew up in Baxter says it's going to be a housing development. It's certainly a good location.

I agree JMT. At any rate, it's good to see they are finally developing the area. Although my wife and I were hoping for maybe a Dairy Queen.......

I would love that, too.

Thought I might add what I heard from a Kroger employee today, and maybe someone has better intel to add. At the least it may give rise to more discussion. My disclaimer is that it is only word of mouth.


I asked the worker today when Kroger was starting on it's Marketplace here in Cookeville? He informed me that it wasn't going to happen, but the Kroger there on Jefferson was set to do a remodel job somewhere in 2018. He then went further to say the store is then going to offer " click list ". I asked him whatever happened to the rumored Marketplace that was to be built at Jackson, and Willow, and he said it was actually supposed to be a smaller WalMart with a grocery section. That fell through, and it is anyone's guess who will build on that corner now.


Personally, even if Kroger revamps it's store, they will have to do some creative engineering to make their parking lot/gas area more navigable.

Kroger Marketplace was never going to be built at Willow and Jackson, that was always going to be a Walmart Neighborhood Market. But that did fall thru and Mr Patel bought that land and last I heard before I moved was that he is just holding it for now for speculation. Only 2 rumored spots for for Kroger Marketplace I ever heard were 10th and Old Kentucky/111 intersection or S Willow just south of I 40. Sounded like the 10th st location was where they were shooting for.

I emailed the Nashville Divison President for Kroger; I received the following from another manager:


We have explored opportunities for new locations in Cookeville in the past, and while I am unable to comment on any specifics at this time, I can tell you that we will continue to monitor the Cookeville area for future growth opportunities. We also have plans to make a fairly significant investment in our existing Cookeville in the very near future. Hopefully the changes we make to the existing store will enhance your shopping experience. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
