THE QUESTION 

“Any ideas when the new Publix is expected to open?” – Jennifer Valentino, Crestview 

THE ANSWER 

According to Dwaine Stevens, a spokesperson for Publix’s corporate office, the new Publix Supermarket location is projected to open around August or September 2017. 

“We should open late third quarter or early fourth quarter,” Stevens said. 

The new store will be 45,000 square feet, and have all of the traditional departments along with a drive-thru pharmacy, according to Stevens. 

Construction began in August 2016 on North Ferdon Boulevard across from the Crestview Marketplace shopping center. 

The facility is being built on a seven-acre parcel of land. 

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU 

There is currently a Publix Supermarket in South Crestview, but there will soon be a location in North Crestview to cater to the needs of residents on both sides of town. 

Completion should be expected in the late summer, early fall of this year, around the time school starts back again.
