Earlier this month, Publix Super Markets opened a 53,000-square-foot store in Winston-Salem, N.C., its first in the city.
“We are excited to begin serving customers in Winston-Salem and providing premier service, quality products and value — including a large selection of buy-one get-one free deals weekly,” Kim Reynolds, media and community relations manager for the retailer’s Charlotte, N.C., division, said in a press release. “Additionally, we are looking forward to being an active and present partner in the community.”
Many of Publix’s newer stores highlight local products in a special section.
The Winston-Salem deli department goes beyond Publix’s famous subs with a hot bar, soup bar, sushi and Chef’s Selections entrees and sides.
A café at the front of the store serves coffee drinks, tea, gelato, Publix Premium ice cream and pastries.
