Our Publix Supermarket


We have posted several photos of flowers we found at our supermarket. We will undoubtedly post more floral photos in the future. Thus, we thought it appropriate to show you the supermarket itself. Publix is the largest supermarket chain in Florida and, we believe the best supermarket chain in Florida.

Here is the symbol of our market economy. Inside are many useless products as the result of demand and good marketing. "Publix" a far cry from the Greek and Roman agora.

Nice shot! I started looking at the pic from the right top corner and ended up looking at the car on the bottom left!

It's huge, at least for our standard, and has a quite solemn look.

Well it is a nice looking store. We don't have them out here or at least I have never seen any. MB

I echo your sentiments.

I think we have about 10 different Publix stores here in Tallahassee and they all look a little different depending on how old they are. The one closest to me is smaller and older and I actually prefer it to the newer bigger ones. The one that is closest to the FSU campus is nicknamed "Club Publix" because it caters to college students and they seem to be socializing more than shopping!

Nice shot I've never seen a Publix before but I googled and see that they have over a thousand stores.
Moving from CA to TX to PA I think it is interesting how some supermarket chains have different names in different states. For example Von's in CA = Tom Thumb's in TX = Genuardi's in PA
Other chains do it too. The same goes for some packaged food products.
Anyway thanks for showing the home of the wonderful flowers.
Have a great day!

I always like a nice clean looking grocery store. But why does a grocery store need 2 floors? What's up there?

Halcyon said...

They also have Publix in Texas. I have always liked them. In the Jackson area, we have Kroger and Brookshires.

Jacob said...

Hi Antjas - There's a 2nd floor only in that front section and that's where the offices are...the rest of the building just has a very high ceiling...

Jacob said...

Hi Halcyon - Publix in Texas must be new...we lived in Dallas and Houston and never saw one...that was a while back, of course...

It looks like it's in a nice neighbourhood and well-kept up. I'd probably want to shop there too. ;-)

Daryl said...

Prospero said...

It does look like a nice place to shop.

Hi Jacob,

This was special. Very nice and very odd. Usually supermarkets comes in huge, dull concrete and glass bricks, but this looks so nice. I would like to shop for my dinner there.

Best regards
Asta

I hate those trolleys on the bottom right. Kids love them but they are a real problem to try and negotiate around the small aisles...

Jacob said...

@ Sean - they are a pain, 'tis true, but even worse are the electric "wheelchairs" which people have a hard time maneuvering...they can block the entire aisle...

"Publix", that's a funny name, actually. Does it mean anything in particular?

Don and Krise said...

Each region of the country has it's own chain and name recognizable in that area. Often times you can just look at the storefront and know that it matches the same store with another name in some other region. That way if they don't get you in the left pocket, they get you in the right.
PS, I did the same as Kcalpesh..upper right to lower left. Nice photo Jacob.
