Sunday Mornings 6:00am

Publix locations have returned to normal hours (7am to 9pm).

Wow! That’s a lot of candles to blow out, Publix.

We’re proud of the Lakeland-based grocery chain, headquartered just up I-4. You can’t go into a Publix and not get great customer service from their friendly employees.

George W. Jenkins was the founder and he opened the first Publix in Winter Haven on September 6th, 1930. Now, Publix has over 1,100 locations.

And were you aware of this fun fact? The Pub Sub is known as the “unofficial state sandwich.”
