former Publix Supermarket
Tarpon Springs, FL
2007: 2021:
This former Publix Supermarket last housed a pawn shop. The business closed in 2018 and the building is vacant now. Around 2018, the building was painted a bright yellow. Later that same year, it was repainted this seafoam green. This building originally had a centrally located, L-shaped sign with a clock. In fact, I believe all the other locations built during this time period had this (see the Orlando building at the bottom of this page). [first photo thanks Robby Delius] [map]

Winter Haven, FL
This former Publix Supermarket was built in 1940. The center tower has been lopped off. The building looked a lot more like the one in Lakeland originally. I believe it is now housing a thrift store. The very first Publix opened in Winter Haven in 1930. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
