A popular grocery store chain is opening another new location in Georgia next week. Read on to learn more.
On Wednesday, December 14, 2022, the grocery store chain Publix will host the grand opening for its newest Georgia supermarket in McDonough.
The new Publix grocery store will be located at 3500 Highway 155 N in McDonough near the Ozias Primitive Baptist Church.
The new Publix store will have everything that shoppers have come to expect from the brand, including a bakery, fresh produce, a deli, floral department, and pharmacy.
When a new grocery store, such as Publix, opens in town, it brings many benefits to the community. First and foremost, new grocery stores increase competition and improve the quality of products available to local shoppers.
With more competition, prices can remain low or even decrease as businesses strive to attract customers with competitive pricing.
Additionally, having multiple grocery stores in an area encourages innovation and better customer service from businesses as they compete for customers. New stores also bring more job opportunities to the area, which is especially beneficial to local communities that may have higher rates of financial insecurity.
Finally, having more grocery store options allows residents who are unable or unwilling to drive long distances for groceries can still access healthy food options close to home.
So, if you are in the McDonough area, consider stopping into the new Publix grocery store when it opens next week.
