The Hamlin Town Center is Growing! Publix Grand Opening this Thursday 8/31 at 8am

HORIZON WEST, FL – Aug. 29, 2017

You're invited to be among the first of the public to check out the brand new 54,000-square-foot Publix super market! 

The large prototype Publix opening Thursday is the first completed space in what will be a 200,000-square-foot shopping area being built as part of the Hamlin town center in the master-planned community in Horizon West. It joins the Walmart that opened November 2016. Although Walmart and Publix are typical offerings of most suburban areas, don't let the fact that they came first fool you. When completed, Hamlin will have over 2 million square feet of retail, restaurants, entertainment, a hotel, medical facilities and office space, as well as over 2,000 single-family and multifamily residences. 

If you are amongst the first shoppers at Publix on Thursday when they open their doors at 8am, you'll receive a free reusable grocery tote. You can also enjoy food samples available throughout the store and one lucky shopper will win a $100 gift card.

The 53,785 square-foot Publix store will offer the traditional grocery, meat, produce, dairy and frozen food departments, and will contain the following departments: pharmacy, bakery, deli, floral, and fresh seafood. Approximately 145 Publix associates will be employed at the store.
“We are pleased and excited to have the opportunity to serve the beautiful Hamlin community in Winter Garden and are anxious to provide an exemplary customer shopping experience, along with superior products our customers have grown accustomed to,” said Dwaine Stevens, media and community relations manager for Publix.
“We're excited about Publix's commitment to southwest Orlando by opening its largest prototype in a market where it already has three super markets within a couple miles of Hamlin. To us, it's recognition of the significant growth of the area," said Scott Boyd, President of Boyd Development Corporation, the developer of Hamlin. “Also, as our town center takes shape, Publix’s quality offerings and superior customer service match our vision for Hamlin.”
