Nokomis Publix to close for renovations

Nokomis residents will soon be in supermarket limbo when the Publix store at 1091 N. Tamiami Trail, closes on March 30 for renovations.

Publix will open a brand new grocery store in the Nokomis area at Laurel and Pinebrook roads, but the opening date is expected to be sometime in late summer or early fall, confirmed Shannon Patten, Publix spokeswoman. All Publix employees from the 1091 Tamiami Trail store will transfer to surrounding Publix locations while the store is closed, she said.

The plan is to tear down the Tamiami Trail location and build a brand new 45,000-square-foot store from the ground up.

“Nokomis customers deserve a beautiful new Publix and we look forward to having that store open by the end of the year,” Patten said. “Once the new store is open, our associates will be able to transfer back to their original store, so our customers will see many familiar faces when they shop there.”

The next nearest open Publix location are three miles away in the Venice Commons plaza at 1445 E Venice Ave.,  or in the Venice Shopping Center at 535 South Tamiami Trail, both in Venice.

The nearest Sweetbay Supermarket is at 1254 Jacaranda Boulevard and 458 Venice By-Pass in Venice.
