business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Charlotte Observer reports that Publix plans to open two stores in the Charlotte, North Carolina, market, its first push into that area with two stores just over the border in Fort Mill and Indian Land, South Carolina

According to the story, “The move could dramatically ratchet up local grocery competition, depending on how many stores Publix eventually opens.”
KC's View:
I fully expect that companies already operating in the market, such as Harris Teeter and Food Lion, to rise to the occasion. it’ll make things more interesting for everybody, and be good for shoppers.
