The new Publix grocery store in the North Pointe Shopping Center will open on Wednesday, March 22, the company announced.

The Florida-based grocery chain has been working on the site for more than a year now. Patrons will find the design of the 45,000-square-foot grocery store has also been incorporated into other store fronts at the North Pointe Shopping Center.

First opened in Florida by George Jenkins in the 1930s, Publix offers a standard of clean stores, friendly service and quality merchandise to customers. The company now has more than 1,300 stores in the Southeast, and will bring these standards to Statesville, including an array of products, a weekly ad, BOGO specials and the convenience of online ordering and pick-up.

Publix will feature a bakery, a deli, and a meat department that prepares freshly cut and packaged meat as well as a selection of fresh seafood sourced from “the best fishing areas."

The Statesville store will also features a produce section, which the company describes as “a vivid garden bursting with ripe, colorful fruits and vegetables.”

Publix also offers organized, simple recipes for shoppers to create meals ranging from weeknight dinners to banquets. In addition, the store offers event planning in-store, ranging from the menu to the décor.

Additionally, the grocery store will carry floral products, premium dairy products, a wide variety of spirits, and sections for pets, babies, health and nutrition, beauty and personal care, and houseware.

The store will feature Publix brand savings, better choice tags designating healthier options, brown shelf tags for organic products, including Publix GreenWise, and gluten-free products. The store has also created a groceries-by-diet guide to help shoppers with dietary concerns.

The store offers a local price comparison, a Pharmacy department with a drive-thu, and a promise that plenty of check-out lanes will always be open.

Publix has a strong focus on community programs like youth soccer and sustainability. The company also provides customers with the option to join free clubs that provide discounts and lifestyle tips, such as the Publix Baby Club, Publix Paws, and Publix Wine Program.

The new store is located at 134 Venture Lane in the North Pointe Shopping Center, at the intersection of Turnersburg Highway and North Pointe Boulevard.
