Publix store on Tom Hill set to close
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Publix store on Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard is closing its doors.
Nicole Krauss with Publix said in an email Tuesday it wasn’t an easy decision to close the location, but employees can relocate to the new store on Thomaston Road when it opens.
The new store, part of a development called Tobesofkee Crossing at the corner of Thomaston and Tucker roads, has been under construction since Spring 2019.
Krauss says the new location is not a “relocation” of the Tom Hill store.
The Tom Hill store, located inside the Rivergate Shopping Center, is four miles away from Publix at Bass Plantation (on Bowman Road). The new store being built now is about eight miles away from the Tom Hill location.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Krauss says there’s no confirmed date for the Tom Hill store’s closure.
