Publix searches for Wilmington store sites

WILMINGTON, NC ( — Publix, a Florida-based supermarket chain, is looking for sites to build a store in the Port City area, said Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo on Thursday.

Site selectors for the company were "in town back in January or February looking around," he said. They wanted to briefly meet with the mayor so that in the event Publix decided on the site they would know whom they needed to see about zoning, traffic and other issues, the mayor said.
