The 117,000 square foot store "will include an H-E-B Wellness Primary Care clinic. The H-E-B Wellness Primary Care clinic will offer full service primary care for all individuals ages 12 and older, operating in coordination with registered dietitians with a food first philosophy rooted in science. Services will include primary care, physical therapy, health/nutrition coaching, clinical pharmacists, specialty referrals and labs to create a coordinated approach to healthcare under one roof."

•  Orlando Weekly reports that "Publix is opening bars in several of its Florida locations.

"Pours at Publix is the newest concept launched by the grocery chain which allows customers to buy wine and beer at the bar located right within the store.  If you aren't quite up to having a pint and a black and white, the newly added bars also offer coffee and tea.

"Other items on the menu at Pours include on-tap kombucha and açaí bowls which you can enjoy while you shop around or eat right at the bar, according to Publix."

Publix Pours also is available in all eight Publix GreenWise Markets.
