As I am writing this the last of the remains of the former Herald Tribune offices on South Tamiami Trail are being torn down. The corners of Wood St. and Bay St. at Tamiami Trail will take on a whole new look. Sometime at the end of 2010 we will have a brand new Publix Super Market open up at this location. It will be replacing the Publix presently at Ringling Shopping Center.
This is great news for downtown Sarasota shoppers. the store will be 52,000 sq.ft. and have parking underneath with escalators to take customers up into the store. I will keep you posted on the store opening date. Also I will be keeping an eye out for any future development news over at the Ringling Shopping Center location.
