Florida-based grocer Publix is opening its first Gastonia store on July 6.
The supermarket will be in a former Lowes Foods at 1949 Hoffman Road, in the Hoffman Village. The grocer opens its doors at 7 a.m.
Publix opened its first North Carolina store in Ballantyne in early 2014. Most recently, the fast-growing grocery chain said it will open a Sherrills Ford store in late 2017.
The Gastonia store will be the company’s 15th in the Charlotte metro, which includes parts of South Carolina.
