Publix is opening its store in the Carytown Exchange development next week.
The Florida-based supermarket chain announced Tuesday that it will open its 16th area grocery store on Dec. 9.
The 48,000-square-foot store will be the anchor tenant in Carytown Exchange on West Cary Street. The store has been under construction for about a year.
The store will be near the Ellwood Avenue and South Thompson Street edge of the property.
Parking will be under the grocery store and in a two-level parking garage adjacent to the store. Lower-level parking will be on grade with Ellwood Avenue, while upper-level parking and the grocery store will be on grade with Cary Street.
A building housing retail tenants along Ellwood Avenue — across the street from the Carytown Place shopping center — would front the lower level of the Carytown Exchange parking deck. Construction has not started on three buildings along Cary Street, which are to be divided into various sizes for small shops and restaurants.
A representative from Regency Centers Corp., the Florida-based shopping center developer of Carytown Exchange, declined to provide an update on the project.
Carytown Exchange is taking root where the former Richmond Shopping Center had operated for decades. Demolition on the former shopping center began in June 2019.
Ukrop’s Super Markets operated one of its busiest stores in the former shopping center for decades until the family-owned chain was sold to Martin’s Food Markets in 2010.
The Martin’s store there closed in July 2017 as the chain exited the Richmond market. That was one of 10 former Martin’s locations that Publix picked up.
Publix, the nation’s fifth-largest grocery chain, opened its 15th area supermarket in late August in the redeveloped Huguenot Village shopping center at the corner of Robious and Huguenot roads in Chesterfield County.
