NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Downtown Nashville residents now have a new option when shopping for groceries.
The Capitol View Publix opened Wednesday morning on Charlotte Avenue.
The 27,000 square foot store is smaller than typical Publix locations but has a deli, bakery, full-service pharmacy and all standard departments.
“The growth makes this kind of thing possible,” said District 19 Metro Council member Freddie O’Connell. “This is a huge moment because urban residents in Nashville have never had a full size grocery option with pharmacy and all that stuff.”
“We wand to be able to reach the area that are growing like capital view and surrounding areas,” said Publix Media and Community Relations Manager Brenda Reid.
Captiol View is a large mixed-use development that has brought many changes to the area in recent years.
The store brings 120 jobs to the area and has a covered parking garage, car charging stations and elevators.
