    Food Lion / Publix

    Of course this had nothing to do with eliminating competition, We can’t have stores competing against each other as it would be too good for the consumer.

    By Fall of 2010 the Walmart Super Center will be open on Old Kings, and with Winn Dixie at Old Kings and route 100, the new Publix and Target, what more could you want. You will even have a Murphy Oil in the Walmart Plaza, with price busting fuel prices. That will kick the high priced fuel stations at I-95 in the pants.

    This is only a positive for Flagler Beach

    Publix continues to be the favorite grocery chain among consumers in our market area and this new plaza is only a plus for residents close by. We are lucky that Publix has chosen to build in our town even if some of their projections for growth were based on old data hoping for the new developments in the area to be built-out quickly. Obviously, that is not happening.
    Publix will bring growth and jobs to our area that has no industry except for the tetering Sea Ray plant.
    I welcome Publix to the neighborhood.
