Publix Grand Opening Today

I made it to the new Publix store grand opening in Pigeon Forge today. I like shopping at this store in Knoxville and know that I’ll go to this new one from time to time. (Probably will avoid Fridays and Saturdays when tourists pull into town.) It is nice to have another shopping choice in the county.

You have probably shopped at Publix before, but if not, scroll down to see some highlights of the grand opening today. I only went around the perimeter of the store because a trainer once told me that is where the healthy things are located.

Ample parking. Enter from the parkway. You can exit onto Wears Valley Road too.

My friend Sheley will be excited to see a Jersey Mike’s going in beside the grocery store. She is a fan of their chicken salad.

Making a good first impression!

Enter and go right to see the floral department and specials. I did not see a gelato station like the store in Knoxville at Northshore Drive. Nor did I see a  soup station nor a stir fry station.

The bakery has some spectacular desserts. If you have a special occasion then this may be the place to order something special.

This cake looks amazing!

This area allows customers to see a recipe (maybe sample it?) and to take a recipe card home. I think that they do one a week. This morning, it was praline french toast.

A nice selection of cheese.

I forgot that they have some of my favorite salads. Love these for lunch.

The hot bar had at least two entrees that were not fried. A plus!

My favorite department is always the produce section.

The meat department had a lot of tempting things. Time to grill out.

No lines in the pharmacy yet.

Restrooms located to the right of the entrance, but you have to look for the sign in the floral department.

As I exited, I noticed a board with special events listed so check it out.

Happy shopping!
