BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., (July 30, 2012) — On Thursday, August 2, 2012, 7 a.m., the Publix at Sunshine Square will open its doors and begin passing on the Publix spirit.
The new store will offer customers 54,000 square feet of shopping pleasure. In addition to the traditional grocery, produce, meat, dairy and frozen food departments, the store will feature the following full-service departments: bakery, deli, floral, fresh seafood and sushi, custom cut meats, as well as a Publix Pharmacy. Customers can also enjoy a hot soup bar prepared fresh daily and a Mediterranean olive bar.
Approximately 120 Publix associates will be employed at the new store.
George Shelby will serve as Store Manager. George has 23 years of service with Publix and was most recently store manager of Publix at Gardens Towne Square.
“We are thrilled to open our doors and begin serving customers,” said Kim Reynolds, Publix’s Miami media and community relations manager. “The store’s larger format allows for an expanded selection of health, natural and organic foods and products as well as an increase in artisan cheeses and wines from around the world. We wanted to enhance our customer’s shopping experience by offering a wider variety of products in a larger, brand new store all while providing the same service and value one has come to expect from Publix.”
The first 1,500 customers on grand opening day will receive a customized free Publix reusable bag.
