TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Publix will open its first ever Greenwise Market in Tallahassee, Thursday.
The Greenwise brand is intended to give customers a secondary shopping option. One that offers natural and organic food. A Publix spokesperson also said it will give shoppers an opportunity to try unique foods, and choices native to the area.
The 29,000 square foot facility is located on Gaines Street in Collegetown and includes a second floor where customers can sit, eat and relax.
Maria Brous, a spokesperson for Publix, said the store is intended to be for not just the college students in the area, but a community location.
"The space allocation for this particular location is right. The culture, the environment, the community was welcoming. It was a great opportunity. We're right between FAMU and Florida State. So it was a great opportunity," she said.
