A new month calls for a new store featured in our My Publix series. We asked our customers to tell us about their favorite hometown stores and one store that customers couldn’t stop bragging about is Store #1566 in Glen Allen, Virginia. This store opened in 2017 and was the first Publix location in the Richmond, Virginia area. Virginia resident Rachel, a Florida transplant, shared with us, “I absolutely love this store location. It’s bigger than most Publix stores and the options are endless. Whether it’s the tasty Chantilly cake in the bakery department or the amazing fried chicken, this store has everything I’ve ever wanted in Virginia.”

Welcome to Virginia


Store #1566 features an olive bar (pictured left) that had our customers absolutely thrilled. A former Atlanta resident currently residing in Virginia couldn’t be happier to be reunited with Publix. “I felt like a kid again. I lined up early for the opening at 4 a.m. and couldn’t wait to get my favorite Pub sub! I’m so happy Publix is here now.”

Local Produce

We always strive to bring our customers the freshest MyPublix_Produceproduce and store #1566 is no different. We offer a wide range of local products.

    My Publix Store is located in Tamarac, Florida. I’ve been shopping at Publix for at least 18 years. It’s funny how you can go to one store time after time and you get to know the folks that work there. I’m going to forgo the corporate policy regarding customer service, but will say there are many wonderful people working at this particular store that go above beyond good customer service because of who they are to begin with. If you shop at Publix we can all agree the deli section is by far the busiest, yet, there’s a young lady, Shirlis, who always has a smile on her face and get’s her job done beyond the call of duty. Erica, one of the young gals is very cheerful who helps with bagging and then there’s Lynn, again, one of the most lovely people you’d want to meet. The store managers, all of them are fantastic.! So I’m proud to say that my Publix is the Western Woods Publix, Store #0822. My sincere thanks to all you guys! Joan S.
