Publix ups its game with prototype store

(Orlando Sentinel) Look out, Whole Foods. You too, Starbucks.
Publix [has opened] a prototype store in the Dr. Phillips neighborhood that aims to be much more than a typical supermarket. It offers a cooking school, shopping and delivery services, and a café.
"We're going to be all things to all people, hopefully," Publix spokesman Dwaine Stevens said Wednesday. "Everyone has different tastes and wants, and we hope to touch all of those."…
"I think we're going to see more and more of these," said Phil Lempert, editor of the website SupermarketGuru.com and The Food Journal, an industry publication that tracks trends. "This is a very smart move for Publix, and I'm sure they're going to use a lot of … what works and what doesn't work and roll out things in other stores in the chain."
