New Publix in Cary opens Wednesday

Posted May 24


The new Publix location on Kildaire Farm Road in Cary is opening on May 25!

The store is located at 3480 Kildaire Farm Road in Cary, NC.

The grand opening is scheduled for Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 7:00 a.m. There will be heavy sampling and specially designed reusable bags as giveaways at the opening.

Once the store opens, I will begin adding a Publix deals list on Wednesdays.

This location is close enough that I will shop there when I am Cary. Who else will be shopping at this new Publix?

    The one in Wake Forest is going to be spitting distance from the Harris Teeter there, too.

    Love them!! Am so happy their be close to where I live. They have so many of my home town brands and their bakery is The Best!!!

    Do not plan to shop there. The closest one for me would be the Green Level Carpenter Fire Station. They would need to have some great BOGO deals for me to shop. My favorite stores are HT and Kroger.

    kanna2 - I think they will be sampling all day but the free bags are while supplies last.

    Anyone know if the open house goes on all day? I would like to check it out but not at 7am ;)

    The section header should read "Upcoming Publix (not Public) Locations." Perhaps that was an auto-correct mishap.

    I will definitely be shopping there!! I can't wait....

    NSTUTT - I had a similar thought when I saw the address. I infrequently shop Publix and have purchased delicious seafood and taken advantage of occasional specials when near the store. Harris Teeter has certainly rewarded this shopper well and will be hard to beat.

    Thanks for the update, Faye! Unless Harris Teeter unfavorably changes the way they reward customers, I expect to continue to shop HT.

    This is at the location of what was previously a Lowe's store if I am not mistaken. And that means both Publix stores open in Cary are near Harris Teeters. (Within walking distance..interesting).
