Now that Publix has folded on its plan to build a new store on St. Helena Island, it should turn its attention and resources to expanding and updating its current store on Lady's Island.'
Given the population increase and changes on the two islands in the past 10 years, more and more of us who use the Lady's Island Publix are playing bumper cart with fellow shoppers and stocking clerks who seemingly flood the store during the busiest shopping periods of the day.'
Certainly compared to its modern, spacious and well-stocked Florida stores, the Publix on Lady's Island has grown tired, overly crowded and limited in many ways by its lack of space. '
We in the Beaufort area deserve to be treated as well as Publix treats its customers in its other stores.'
