Publix in Rock Hill to open March 26

A new Publix on Cherry Road in Rock Hill is set to open at 7 a.m. Wednesday, March 26, the company said Friday.

The store is located at 2186 Cherry Road, in the Cherry Road Crossing shopping center, Publix said. This is the company's first location in Rock Hill.

The 63,000 square foot store is a former Bi-Lo supermarket. 

Publix opened its first store in Charlotte last month, in Ballantyne. The grocer has plans to aggressively expand across the Charlotte area with a total of 14 stores over the next two years. 

Company officials said in a news release that the supermarket will "welcome customers and continue passing on the Publix spirit."
