There are so many questions: Is there a local demand for Publix? Can they cram a Publix on Merrimon Avenue with all the other grocery stores? How many groceries is too many groceries in little ol’ Ashvegas? We’ve wondered out loud before just how long it might be before Publix shows up in Asheville.
BTW, Asheville City Council on Tuesday night approved the plan for a big new fancy Whole Foods store on Tunnel Road. Check.
