“When we began looking at the Packing District we defined success by one simple measure, bringing Publix into the district. We knew that if we had their commitment the project would be a success,” said Ken Robinson, president and CEO of Dr. Phillips Charities.

The Publix sits on the same location as the original Dr. Phillips packing house. It will feature traditional grocery, dairy and frozen food departments along with a full-service bakery, deli, pharmacy, seafood, meat and a fresh produce department.
