Below is Allie's descriptive map of the layout of the new Publix: As you face the store, there are 3 sets of doors, left, middle and right. The left set of doors is an Entrance/Exit with carts to the right of the doors as you go in. (This left set of doors is closest to the other shops, like Books-a-Million.) The right set of doors is an Entrance/Exit with carts to the left of the doors as you go in. The middle set of doors has no carts and is primarily an exit because it is near the Checkout. Entering from the right set of doors, you are in a foyer that holds the carts. You'll go through an entryway and then you're in the store proper. To the left after the entryway are stairs which lead up to the cooking school and to a mezzanine which looks out over the store. Near this right hand entrance is the Customer Service Counter. (On your left a little way after you come into the store.) * Perimeter of the store * Starting at this right hand entrance and going around the perimeter of the store counter-clockwise To the right as you walk in, on the front wall are books and magazines and free-standing shelving with all sorts of cooking gear. On the front right wall and the rightmost front of the store in free-standing shelving is the organic dried foods section , including bulk food like nuts, grains, dried fruit, sold by weight and you buy as much or as little as you want . A huge gluten-free section is found here as well. The rest of the right hand side of the store is the pharmacy. The back wall is dairy (with a break in the middle for restrooms.) except for ice cream which is with frozen foods, aisle 14. Back left of the store is meat and seafood. Middle left of store is wine and specialty cheese. Middle left but a little farther toward front of store is bakery. Front left corner is a little cafe to sit in with the food you have foraged ;) There is also another set of restrooms here. You are now at the left entrance of the store. The front of the store is a long set of cases which runs from the left side of the store to the middle along the front of the store with several stations: Deli with gourmet and ethnic foods Traditional deli foods like fried chicken and mac and cheese Hot and Cold Sandwich Bar. Near these Deli cases is a long free-standing counter with salad bar on one side, Chinese food on the other side and 4 soup of the day choices at the end. (Allie's Note: Everything we have tried from the new Deli and Hot Sandwiches have been excellent: Parmesan-crusted tilapia (fish), Mediterranean rice, roast beef and blue cheese sandwich on ciabiata and a sandwich with roasted vegetables with feta cheese. I will see about getting a menu for you all or typing it in because I think it is going to be such a convenience to have all of these mini-restaurants right where you grocery shop). The middle front of the store has checkout and the middle exit. We've now finished with the perimeter of the store. * Middle of the Store * Looking at the aisles facing the back of the store, Aisle 1 is near the Pharmacy at the right of the store and Aisle 15 is near the left of the store. The produce section is almost like an additional aisle; it runs down beside aisle 15, from the rear of the store all the way to the salad bar. *Summary of Aisle Contents* Aisle 1: ?
