Publix announces second new supermarket for Charlotte, N.C. area

LAKELAND, Fla. — Publix Super Markets on Thursday announced it has signed a lease for a second store in the Charlotte, N.C. area. The store will be located at the intersection of South Boulevard and Iverson Way in Charlotte.

“We are excited to bring Publix to even more customers and associates in North Carolina and look forward to continued growth in the state and in our current operating areas,” stated Maria Brous, Publix media and community relations director.

The shopping center, the Shops at South Line, will feature a 54,975-sq.-ft. Publix supermarket as well as other shops and restaurants. The project also includes two levels of underground parking in addition to ground level parking.

Publix announced in September its first North Carolina store in Ballantyne, located at Providence Road West and Johnston Road, opening in 2014.

The grand opening date for the Shops at South Line location will depend on several factors, including permitting and completion of the store’s construction; however, the opening is tentatively planned for late 2014.
