WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Publix plans to open its first grocery store in Winston-Salem by the end of 2015, company spokeswoman Kim Reynolds told Winston-Salem Journal.

“We are very excited to begin serving customers in Winston Salem,” Reynolds said.

But there’s still no word on a timeline for the construction of the store on the site of the former Masonic lodge at 34 Miller St.

Reynolds said that Publix stores typically have 125 employees and that the grocery chain’s stores are between 49,000 square feet and 56,000 square feet.

The Publix store in Winston-Salem will have grocery, produce, meat and seafood, dairy and frozen food departments, as well as a Publix Bakery and Publix Deli.
