Default What's your wish south of 466A?

Since there will be thousands of residents south of 466A what would you like to see. Just a few things on my wish list....a TooJays in Brownwood, a hospital (would love to see an affiliate of the Cleveland Clinic) on 44 with an emerygency room that can treat you within a REASONABLE amount of time. A Lowes and a fitness center and a Walmart Super Center (you could go broke shopping at Publix). What is your wish?

It's hard for me to understand why you are all so down on Publix. I find shopping at Publix to be the pleasantest hour of my week!

Me too Jeanne! I also shop for staples at Walmart but am addicted to the bakery at Publix and the ALWAYS WARM and PLEASANT and HELPFUL staff at our Publix store. Also the produce section looks much cleaner than Walmart.

If only they carried Worthmore's Mock Turtle Soup like Krogers does in Cincinnati.

I would LOVE a Starbuck's, especially if it had a drive-through.

I LOVE Publix. Compared to the other options, Publix wins hands down. I have shopped them all, I really like Fresh Market, but their prices are way out of sight. I have only twice gone into Sweetbay and the smell was so bad I won't go back. The otherhalf was in there recently for something and he mentioned "the peculiar smell in there". WallyMart does not do it for me either.

Publix is super clean, great staff who will do anything to help you, and carries just about everything I need.

Costco just raised their initiation fee. I let others decide if it was too much.
I hope all of you south of 466A get your wish. It will be beneficial for you and for the residents south of 466.

I can find all of the stores mentioned outside TV and at this point enjoy getting out of dodge with my wife to shop. so it is an enjoyable ride to Orlando, Ocala, etc. Miss Albertson here and in Mount Dora now all have disappeared from the area

We like Publix but also Sweet Bay Winn Dixie, Aldi's, Sam's and shop all of them for one reason or another.

I am being really really nice today because it my birthday and my wife says that the way I act today will be the way I'll act the rest of the year. So I am going to tread lightly all day and will defer as to how I will behave tomorrorw

Joyous Easter
