Waynesville Pavilion is a grocery-anchored retail center proposed for the northwest quadrant of Russ Avenue and Frazier Street in the town of Waynesville in Haywood County, North Carolina. It would surround Sagebrush Steakhouse, 895 Russ Avenue, Waynesville, North Carolina 28786-4147.

Waynesville Pavilion site plan

A 49,098-square-foot Publix supermarket with a pharmacy drive thru is projected to anchor Waynesville Pavilion. ("Publix speculated for Russ Avenue at Frazier Street, Waynesville, North Carolina.")

Interesting...
We were just shopping at the redone larger Ingles in Waynesville: that store reinforces why bigger is not always better, in terms of getting around in it, finding what one shops for, etc.

Standing in the parking lot of that Ingles and looking across to the odd shaped, very sloped elevation parking lot where this new building project may go, one wonders how they will cram that sq ft footprint into that existing area.

I am not a NIMBY or un-progressive person, but I repeat my original comments on a possible Publix there: most of the local pop will not shop there, (pricing across the board), the traffic in that stretch of Russ Avenue is currently packed from pre lunch through dinner/early evening, and one has to scratch one's head and wonder 'why' would Pub want to be 'there'?

The old Kmart plaza, less than a half mile up the street, makes more sense to me, if Publix really believes they can run a slightly profitable store in Waynesville, but I'm not on Pub's or the Town's board(s).

Existing tenants and structures on the proposed Waynesville Pavilion site will either relocate or be razed.

I see Waynesvillians shopping at Ingle's and Publix rather than BI-LO.

I see Waynesville people shopping at Ingles, and down mkt...
Some of us that are fortunate/comfortable will hit Publix, as well some of the summer seasonal that are/were long time FL rez and have become accustomed to Pub.

I hope it is a Publix and that they succeed, but their usual pricing levels that I am familiar with will cater to/attract a small slice of Haywood County rez, imo.

Back at the Planning Ranch, that section of Russ Ave from the Smoky Mtn Express ramps south to Main Street, are already packed and it's only mid May. Publix and other stores in that Waynesville Pavilion site will only add to the considerable traffic.

But, the Town Council/Aldermen are aware of the traffic situ, I hope.

Not in my decade and a half of shopping in both brand stores...

A W'ville Pub may have to adjust their usual pricing, downward.

Save me the Mkt Basket comparo research...based on what we buy, Pub is higher on nearly every item, some items considerably higher.

Better 'quality' at Pub? Yes, on some stuff. I doubt the usual local shopper here cares, notices or wants that Pub friendly service and higher pricing.
My point is that the average demographic of Waynesville is not seeking Publix prices, in general.

When was the last time you shopped in the Waynesville Ingles or a Pub in the two state area?

I wonder what your inducement is, but I wish you well...

I shop at Ingle's and Publix often. There is hardly any difference in price. Publix does not have a card program.

I am not aware of Ingle's planning to open additional and replacement stores in Knox County, Tennessee. That market also has supermarkets Food City, Kroger, Publix, and Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Ingle's is active improving stores in North Carolina likely with Publix opening more stores in existing trade areas.
