Publix Grocery Chain Announces Expansion into 8th State

Florida’s Publix grocery store is expanding to Kentucky and will open its first store in Louisville on January 10th. The new store, situated at 2500 Terra Crossing Boulevard, will cover 55,701 square feet and feature a drive-thru Publix Pharmacy.

Additionally, there will be a 3,200-square-foot Publix Liquors section offering beer, wine, and spirits. This marks the first Publix Liquors location outside of Florida.

“When our founder, George Jenkins, opened the first Publix store, he wanted to create a better grocery store — one that kept associates and customers top of mind,” Publix CEO Todd Jones stated in a previous news release. “More than 90 years later, we’ve kept true to our values, including supporting the communities in which we live and work. We look forward to sharing the Publix difference with Kentuckians.”

Publix intends to construct at least four additional stores in Kentucky. The locations are as follows:

1. Publix at Citation Point, 1952 Stockton Way, Lexington
2. Publix at The Fountains at Palomar, 3901 Harrodsburg Road, Lexington
3. Publix at Ballardsville, 10005 Ballardsville Rd, Louisville
4. Publix at Terra Crossing, 2500 Terra Crossing Boulevard, Louisville

Additionally, Publix operates stores in South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia.
