All over other parts of the US, produce is as good or better than Publix and it is CHEAPER ! There are other examples of lower prices for the same products a Wal-Mart.
How can a super market in another state sell a large bunch of fresh dill (herb)for under $0.90 and Publix can only sell a tiny little bag that is not as good or as fressh for $3.00 ?
This is only one example of many.
Since my wife and I travel regularly on business, we see the difference first hand !
As Publix is a privately owned company, we will never know have much they profit on their stores but I will bet they are really lining their pockets with the green and I don't mean vegetables.
