Publix to open first Charlotte store in February

Publix Super Market's new Ballantyne store - the retailer's first Charlotte location - is set to open in late February, spokeswoman Kimberly Reynolds said.

An exact date hasn't been set, but the store will likely do so in the coming weeks. Publix is waiting for a temporary certificate of occupancy.

The Ballantyne store will join two locations just over the South Carolina border, boosting Publix's total store count in the area to three.
