Residents waiting for more details on the new Publix grocery store coming to Northeast Columbia, will have to wait a bit longer.

It was announced in August that the grocery retailer executed a lease on a new location in Columbia. The new store will be Publix at Market at Spears Creek and located at the Northwest corner of Spears Creek Church Road and Earth Rd.

Cola Daily recently contacted the grocery retailer to learn more about the location and opening date. In an email, Jared Glover, media relations manager for the Charlotte division of Publix Supermarkets, stated the store's opening date would be announced at a later time.

What is known is that Publix at Market at Spears Creek will be approximately 45,000 square feet, will reportedly employ 140 people and be the company's thirteenth store location in the Midlands.

The new location will continue to add to the area's growth. In July 2021, the City of Columbia Planning Commission approved plans for a 298-family subdivision called Colonels Creek for 4600 Percival Road.
