Publix is Definitely a Food Wonderland

 

Clarksville, TN – I walked into the new Publix store on Madison Street on Saturday morning and felt like I had entered a wonderland of food. Everywhere I looked was a colorful display of items I’d love to take home with me.

As Ashley Jones, a customer in the store expressed her feelings, “I’ve never been here before and I’m already in love! The vegetarian and international sections are fabulous. I’m a vegan so Walmart isn’t really my friend!”

As you enter the store, the first area you see is the florist. Bouquets of cut flowers, pots of blossoming tulips and hydrangeas, arrangements of everything from roses to chrysanthemums! Fragrant flowers to start your day with pleasure were everywhere. Reasonable prices like a pot of tulips for $5.99 suited my wallet and my sense of cheer at the thought of Spring just around the corner.

Store manager Norman Rubio Jr. gives a young patron a flower as she enters the store during the grand opening of the Publix store.
