Ask 13: Is Publix shopping for a location in Waynesville?

"We heard that Publix was going to build in Waynesville near the Sagebrush Steakhouse. Is this true?" Nancy Buzby wrote to Ask 13. (Photo credit: WLOS staff)

Rumors are swirling that Publix may be expanding it's reach further into Western North Carolina. Lots of folks are looking forward to the opening of a Publix in Hendersonville. But is the supermarket chain already eyeing another location?

There's already stores in Asheville and Weaverville. And now there's a lot of buzz that a Publix might be coming to Haywood County.

The Sagebrush is just off the Great Smoky Mountains Expressway on Russ Avenue. It's a part of town that's been a hotbed for new development. Chick-fil-A opened a store just up the street in December. That's real close to the Ingles Markets and a high visibility area with lots of traffic.

Publix communications manager Kim Reynolds said, right now, there are no confirmed sites in Waynesville. But Reynolds said Publix is always looking to expand. That's as far as she would go.
