Publix to Reopen in Pompano Beach

A newly rebuilt Publix at Pompano Shopping Center will celebrate its grand reopening on Saturday, March 31, at 7 a.m. The first 1,500 customers to shop on opening day will receive a free customized Publix reusable bag.

This new store replaces the original Publix on the site, which opened in 1967 and was closed last April. The old building was completely torn down to make way for this larger version of the popular supermarket chain.

The completely redesigned store will offer customers 54,000 square feet

of groceries, meat, dairy, and produce. In addition to the regular

provisions found in a typical market, the Pompano Beach Publix will

offer a bakery, deli, florist, seafood, sushi counter, pharmacy, and liquor store.

A host of prepared foods will also be offered, including pan-Asian foods

like General Tso chicken and fried rice, a soup bar, and artisan salads.

The store will also feature an olive bar and has expanded its organic

food selection.

The new Publix will employ about 200 associates, bringing a host of new jobs to the community.

Publix, Pompano Shopping Center, 2511 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach.
