Publix Super Markets has introduced a line of products for the summer.

The Lakeland grocer says these new additions include salads from its deli to flavored teas and are only available for a limited time.

(A Publix spokesperson did not respond to questions about how long they’ll be available or if all stores will carry these products.

Publix is — by far — the state’s biggest grocery store chain with 872 stores. 

And it’s growing nationally with stores in 1,376 stores eight states, including a new store that opened in Kentucky this year.

In all, it’s opened eight stores thus far this year and has plans to open two more in June. That includes one at 7064 Waterset Blvd. in Apollo Beach.

The company sales in 2022 reached $54.5 billion.

But it’s not growing as fast as another grocery chain, Aldi.

According to JLL’s Grocery Report 2024 released in February, Aldi opened 109 locations, totaling nearly 2.5 million square feet of new space last year. That’s a 32.3% increase from 2022.

Publix opened 38 new stores last year adding roughly 1.9 million square feet of space.
