Publix to open at Tiger Point

Publix Super Markets, Inc. is opening another 45,000 square foot grocery store in south Santa Rosa County in a new shopping center, called – Tiger Point Pavilion. The new shopping center located adjacent to Lowes and the Tiger Point baseball fields  will include three out-parcels ranging from 4,000 to 8,000 square feet according to a sign placed on the property. There will also be a 1,400 square foot Publix Liquor Store.

Some may think the south end Publix stores are located within a short distance of each other with the Navarre store 11 miles and Gulf Breeze 7 miles away from the new location. However, the Publix locations in Orlando Florida  are much closer together many being only 2 and 3 miles apart and one store located only 1.2 miles from another Publix.
