Publix Supermarket opened in Tifton! A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at 7:30 am on Wednesday August 29th, 2012 with the store officially opening for business at 8:00 am. The event was presided over by store manager, Greg Boxx. Representatives from their corporate headquarters, other regional Publix locations as well as the new staff were on hand to celebrate the occasion and to help manage the large crowd in attendance. Tift County and many other visitors from the surrounding area turned out to honor the occasion and SHOP. Our local dignitaries were present and extended their thanks to the company for expanding their operations to Tifton.

Publix began right away with a generous display of giving by donating $3,000 to the area primary and elementary schools to help with school supplies and other needs.

This occasion has been long awaited for and our community could not be happier. Publix is located at 620 North Virginia Avenue next to the Tifton Mall and at the intersection of Hwy. 75 and 8th St. You may reach Publix by phone at (229)386-1166. Come join us at Publix, now in Tifton Georgia
