Pooler elected officials, Publix representatives and The Village at Savannah Quarters held a unique Valentine’s Day ceremony as they broke ground on a new Publix grocery store. Construction is officially underway on Pooler Parkway near Blue Moon Crossing.

The 46,000 square foot Publix will be located on a 9.27-acre site in the southwest quadrant of Savannah Quarters. Additional retail stores will be developed adjacent to the Publix building.

“We welcome Publix to The Village at Savannah Quarters and embrace their company mission to be an involved and responsible part of our local community,” Gerrit Albert, President, Coastal South-LStar Communities, said today.

The Publix at The Village at Savannah Quarters will join the first Pooler store, located at the north end of Pooler Parkway. Dwaine Stevens, media and communications manager for Publix, said he expects the store to be open in November.
