business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Publix Super Markets announced that it has opened its first GreenWise Market store in Georgia, in Marietta's Sandy Plains Marketplace Shopping Center.

GreenWise is described by Publix as a "specialty, natural and organic store with a large selection of prepared foods made from organic and antibiotic-free ingredients. Foodies can find in-store smoked meats, in-house made sausages, burrito bowls and specialty charcuterie options. The stores are divided into experience zones."

The company says that "the first new-concept GreenWise Market opened in Tallahassee, Florida, in October 2018. Seven stores are now open, including the 25,089-square-foot Marietta location; stores in Odessa, Florida, and Nocatee (Ponte Vedra), Florida, are set to open this week."

•  The BBC reports that Tesco is selling its 301-store Polish business to Denmark's Salling Group for the equivalent of about $226 million (US).

According to the BBC, Tesco said "the sale would allow it to focus on its central European markets of Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia where it commands more of the market.  The company has also retreated from Thailand and Malaysia so far this year as it curbs its global ambitions."
