Publix supermarket

Publix is targeting a late August opening date for its new grocery store being built in The Village shopping center at Three Chopt Road and Patterson Avenue.

The Florida-based chain hasn't set a specific opening date yet for the 48,000-square-foot Publix as several factors can affect the date, spokeswoman Kimberly Reynolds said.

A former Martin’s grocery store on that site was demolished last summer so Publix could replace that location with one of its own.

That former Martin’s was previously a Ukrop’s Super Markets store, which opened in 1994 as a 36,000-square-foot grocery. It was later expanded by taking over a former gift shop next door.

The shopping center is located in both Henrico County and the city of Richmond.

Publix opened a new grocery store in late May in the Westpark Shopping Center in Henrico. That store marked the grocery chain’s 12th location in the Richmond market.

Additional Publix stores are under development or under construction in the area.

A store is planned for Charter Colony Parkway at Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield County by demolishing the existing 74,000-square-foot former Martin’s store on the site and replacing it with a 48,800-square-foot Publix store.

Other stores planned include being part of the redeveloped Huguenot Village shopping center in Chesterfield and it will be part of the Carytown Exchange development that will replace the Martin’s store as well as the aging Richmond Shopping Center in Carytown.
