Publix Super Markets Inc. confirmed late Jan. 27 that it intends to buy the Lucky’s Market lease in Neptune Beach, raising the possibility that it will bring its GreenWise Market concept to Duval County.
“I can confirm that we are under contract to purchase five Lucky's leases with locations in Clermont, Naples, Neptune Beach, Orlando and Ormond Beach. We are currently in the due diligence process,” Maria Brous, director of communications with Lakeland-based Publix Super Markets Inc. told WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
