Publix will open its 13th area grocery store on Aug. 28.
The Florida-based chain announced Tuesday the opening date for the 48,000-square-foot store in The Village shopping center at Three Chopt Road and Patterson Avenue.
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.
The new store will have a side entrance accessible from a walkway that connects to the back parking lot.
Publix opened its 12th location in the Richmond market in late May in the Westpark Shopping Center in Henrico.
Additional Publix stores are under development or under construction in the area.
One store is planned for the Carytown Exchange development on West Cary Street. Work has started on that shopping center where Publix plans to put a 45,000-square-foot grocery store. No opening date has been set, but the developers of Carytown Exchange plan to have the center open to its first tenants in the first quarter of 2021.
Another Publix is slated for Charter Colony Parkway at Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield County, where a 74,000-square-foot former Martin’s store on the site has been demolished with plans for a 48,800-square-foot Publix store.
Plans also call for Publix to have a store in the redeveloped Huguenot Village shopping center in Chesterfield.
