— A new two-story Publix supermarket opens in Wendell on Wednesday.

The Publix at Wendell Falls is located at 2257 Wendell Falls Parkway, and the grand opening is scheduled for 7 a.m.

The store is just over 48,000 sq. ft. and will employ approximately 140 associates.

A company representative shared that Publix will be giving away reusable bags at the opening. In the past, the bags were given to customers at checkout when they made a purchase.

In addition, the first mailer with Publix weekly specials should already be in Wendell-area mailboxes. If you do not get it, you can pick it up at the store when you arrive Wednesday.

This is the first Publix store in eastern Wake County. Part of the Wendell Falls community, developers told WRAL News more commercial and retail space will be ready next year.

WakeMed also plans to start construction on a new medical facility in the area next year.
