Prattville – Publix officially opened their doors in Prattville this morning at 6:45. Mayor Jim Byard cut the ribbon alongside Rep. Mac Gipson and various Publix officials on hand for the ceremony.

The 54,340 square foot store is Prattville’s first Publix and the largest in the Montgomery area.

The store features new design elements and a bright open feel. Services include seafood, bakery, and a large pharmacy.

Mayor Byard welcomed the crowd and Publix officials to the fast-growing city. “This is the earliest ribbon cutting I’ve ever been to,” he laughed.

Store Manager, David Wright, also spoke at the ceremony, “I would like to welcome you to Publix,” and mentioned he was from Coosada.

With the opening of Publix at High Point Town Center, Prattville residents moved one step closer to a complete shopping experience. The grocery store will help fill a gap in the local retail market.

Founded in 1930, Publix Super Markets is the largest and fastest-growing employee-owned supermarket chain in the United States.

Publix is a Florida based grocery chain that is rapidly expanding in the state of Alabama and the southeast region. The chain is a major competitor of Walmart Inc.

The Prattville Publix store #1228 is located in the High Point Town Center at 2451 Cobbs Ford Road. Store hours are 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM Sun – Sat.

Pharmacy hours are Mon thru Fri 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM, Sat 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM and Sun 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM.
