This publix makes me feel like we are at the corner grocer and it's 1950 again. Everyone knows us and our kids by name. We have lived in the area 5 years and it never ceases to amaze me when the employees call me by name, ask about my kids, remember details I have said in the past, or when they always start casual conversations because they are genuinely happy to see us. I know Publix charges more for some items but I use the Buy One Get One Free offers and I stock up. Saves me a bundle. Besides, I couldn't eat Walmart meat. It has a strange grey color when I cook the beef. I tried Kroger down the street but I got tired of bringing back food that was rotten. I found outdated stuff in Kroger's dairy area on a regualr basis. I rather eat rice and beans 28 days out of the month but when I eat meat it has to be from publix. I also need produce and dairy from publix. You can get canned goods and staples from Walmart. But I won't compromise on the food that needs to be fresh.
