MONROE, Ga. — Both a sign at the site and a comment from the mayor confirmed it Thursday: Publix is coming to Monroe.
A “Coming Soon” sign went up at a proposed development planned in a large area bordered by U.S. 78, Charlotte Rowell Boulevard and North Broad Street.

The Lakeland, Florida-based grocery store is expected to break ground in the first or second quarter of 2020 as part of the first phase of what will be known as Monroe Pavilion.
Located on 100 acres at US 78, GA HWY 138 and GA 11, Monroe Pavilion is slated to open in 2021 with a groundbreaking planned for Q1 2020. Total investment for the entire 350,000-square-foot project will exceed $80 million.
From the beginning, our vision for Monroe Pavilion has been to provide quality shopping and dining that meet the needs of residents of Walton County, and Publix signing on as the lead anchor tenant is a significant step toward reaching that goal,” said John Argo, President of MAB American Management, LLC. “As we prepare to break ground on the shopping center, we look forward to securing additional tenants that create a quality retail destination close to home.”
Our next project depends on the success of yours.
