Industry Situation and Company Plans
Publix Supermarkets continue to grow on a daily basis. They have been dominating the industry and have even helped cause the bankruptcy of Winn Dixie causing them to shut down many of their stores. The main threat to Publix are the Wal-Mart Super centers that seem to be opening everywhere. But as long as Publix stays with the same values it is held true over the years, they will compete. Publix now has 875 stores compared with 850 at the beginning of 2005. Publix intends to keep their motto of giving great customer service and selling quality goods.
