      Blurb in WRAL.com about Publix coming to Cary.


      P.S. Thessalian, Gulf of Mexico beaches (i.e., Destin, Panama City, St. George Island or the Sarasota/St. Pete areas) are nothing like S. FL beaches.

        This is awesome news. Publix is the only thing I miss about Florida.

          And the beautiful beaches and great seafood of the Gulf of Mexico.

            Not a beach person. Most beaches in SoFla were private or gross.

          Grew up in FL so am a big Publix fan. I like their store brand for a lot of their products, like yogurt (churro flavor anyone?). Very similar to HT, maybe just a notch above.

            Yes we have Florida friends who told us they are in the midst of a large expansion through to VA. Don't know about prices and such but I do love the Subs at their deli counter.

              Now you will get some good to great pies. Gift the mango pie to everybody before they catch on. " Glad you like it, It was no trouble at all."

              Wonder how long it will take the staff to adopt to Publix service standards?

                I *LOVE* Publix.

                I moved to California Central Coast earlier this year and really miss Publix. No Wegman's in my area, so I can't compare Publix to Wegman's but I miss the Publix deli most of all. Haven't had a decent chicken (baked or fried) since I moved here.

                The closest thing in my area of Central Coast is Albertson's--and I've been to a couple-- and the chicken and pork roasts have a bizarre, over-seasoned taste. I can't describe it, but it's not pleasant. It just doesn't taste good. Their pork roast tastes almost burnt. I've never gotten a whole chicken from the deli; it's always missing a wing, part of a wing or part of a leg. The wing bar is also not good as the flavors are "off". Albertson's also sells the wings far past the time they should; I've seen the boneless wings reach the hockey puck state and still out for sale.

                My easy, go- to meal used to be a deli chicken and now I can't count on that any longer. Shame on you, Albertson's!

                  Publix, meh. I am holding out for Wegman's.

                      My mother raves about Wegman's.
