Today Publix Super Markets Inc. announced it has closed on a new store location in Chesterfield County, Va.  The Publix at Cosby Village will be located at the northeast corner of Otterdale Road and Hull Street. The 50,000 square foot store will include a drive-thru pharmacy and is part of a new commercial development to include an additional 17,700 feet of retail space. Harris Development Partners serves as the developer.

This store marks the second location for Publix in Chesterfield County and will be the first Publix to be built from the ground-up within the county.
