I feel like they will open more stores in the South before they go up North because that's Wegman's territory, and Wegman's is just a bigger Publix. Publix is going to come to Texas way before Wegman's even think about expanding to the South.

No; I doubt Publix will come to Texas. It's like HEB coming to the Southeast which will probably never happen (excluding Lousiana). There is no demand for Publix here. I've been to one and while they are decent; I don't see anything special about them compared to HEB.

True. I just know Publix is expanding a lot and it is quite successful; I just thought maybe Texas was a possible contender for future successful expansions.

That HEB near 288 in Pearland is awesome. I like it even better than Central Market. They should just faceout Central Markets here and just give us the higher end HEB's

Publix is a real nice grocery store with great store brand candy.

I've been to them in Florida and Tennessee. I've been to more nice ones than bad ones. It really isn't that amazing. HEB is better for me.

And the rest, as they say, is history.
