Publix Super Markets on Wednesday opened its newest Georgia location at Arbor Springs Plaza in Newnan.
The 48,000-square-foot store located at 4000 N. Highway 29 is in Coweta County, which is around 40 miles southwest of Atlanta.
“We are very excited for the opening of our newest Publix at Arbor Springs Plaza,” said Nicole Krauss, Publix media relations manager, in a statement. “We look forward to continuing to provide premier service and quality products to new and existing customers in and around the greater metro Atlanta area.”
Closing out fiscal 2022, Publix experienced steady sales growth as the employee-owned grocer continues to increase its footprint with new store openings.
Publix’s penetration into the state of Georgia has seen several new store openings. Last month, Publix opened its newest Georgia location at Covington Town Center in Covington. The 48,000-square-foot store located at 12701 Town Center Drive, is in Newton County, which is located east of Atlanta.
In Georgia, the closure of a Kroger grocery store in Decatur took away a walkable shopping option in the city prompting Publix to sponsor a shuttle service for residents from downtown Decatur to the Publix Super Market at Sam’s Crossing Village, which Publix purchased last month according to a press release from Colliers.
Publix, one of the country's largest employee-owned grocers, with more than 240,000 associates on its payroll, operates 1,330 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. The grocery retaileroperates 203 stores in the state of Georgia, according to the grocery retailer’s website.
