Lakeland, Florida-based Publix says plans for its 12th GreenWise Market format location is in the works for St. Augustine, Florida.
The store will be the second for St. Johns County. The other, in Ponte Vedra Beach, is planned to open in 2020, a year before the 2021 opening of the St. Augustine location.
“GreenWise Market is a place for customers to find products to support their evolving lifestyles,” Publix president Kevin Murphy says. “It’s an easy gathering place for a meal with friends or to explore unique and local finds. We look forward to sharing this experience with the St. Augustine community.”
GreenWise specializes in natural and organic items for the health-conscious and gourmet foodies. The stores are divided into four departments, or what the company calls "experience zones."
Prepared foods are in the EATS section; meats, including in-house smoked meats and sausages, are in the CUTS section; FINDS features new items like beer, wine, charcuterie and more; and POURS features beer, wine, coffee and other beverages for consumers to enjoy while they shop.
