Publix plans new store in Delray Beach

Publix aims to build a store on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, a move that would continue the retailer’s blanket coverage of a state where it’s already the dominant grocer.

Publix is negotiating with a developer and the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency to build a 25,000-square-foot store in the 600 block of West Atlantic Avenue. The CRA this month signed an agreement to sell 2.75 acres it owns to Pasadena Capital Inc. of Orlando for $2 million.

In recent years, Publix has moved toward owning (rather than renting) its real estate. The 25,000-square-foot store would be similar in size to Publix locations in downtown Lake Worth and at CityPlace in West Palm Beach.
