    10 days away !!!!:cool1:

    We have reservations with Tiffany Town Car to take us to the Shades of Green, and we requested a 30-min grocery stop. Any suggestions on doing this "supermarket sweep"? :rotfl2:

    Per their website, they stop at one of a few Publix stores. I read somewhere that Publix was standardizing their store layouts. Any insight on the layout?

    Not sure about standardizing their layouts. The three different Publixes in my area all have different layouts. Their lane signs are usually pretty helpful though. They do seem to keep the same things on each aisle, just some stores seem to have aisles in different places than my normal store. You can look up their ad online, which may help you save some money or just see what's on sale.

    Publix' layouts are probably standardized in two categories:

    • Stores that were built from the ground-up by Publix
    • Stores acquired from Albertson's when that grocery chain started their Florida drawdown in 2008 (many of those stores are older than the typical Publix store)
