Community leaders gathered at the location for the new Publix grocery store on Friday morning for the official groundbreaking ceremony. The ceremony yielded a bit of good news as well: the new store will more than likely be open sooner than initially expected.

A number of elected officials were present at the ceremony and all of them talked about the significance of bringing Publix to Greenwood.

“Not only is this a win, this is our signature retail win right here,” Greenwood Mayor Welborn Adams said. “This is our signature victory. This is a great day for Greenwood.”

Adams noted that the store would mean a $15 million investment and 120 new jobs.

“This is great,” Sen. Floyd Nicholson said of bringing Publix to Greenwood. “This just goes to show what you can accomplish when you’re willing to work together. I want to commend the (Greenwood Partnership Alliance), the County of Greenwood, the City of Greenwood, my dear friend Howard Corley, for everyone working together to make this happen.”

It was announced that the Publix store in Greenwood would be a hybrid Publix. The hybrid Publix offers conventional items combined with an abundant selection of earth-friendly, all-natural and organic products.

The store was initially expected to open next September, but officials said that the new store may be ready to open as early as June 2014.

What are they doing to attract an Olive Garden to Greenwood? We keep hearing rumors but nothing seems to pan out. I keep having to take my wife to Greenville to the one there, she loves the place.
