TAMPA — The long-awaited Channel District Publix will open late next month.

Tenants across the street at Bell Channelside have watched the Publix and its attached high-rise apartment and condo tower, Channel Club, rise over the last year. Amid construction delays, Publix has continued to push back the store’s opening. At one point it was slated to open at the start of 2019. It had been most recently pushed to Aug. 15.

Publix spokesman Brian West confirmed this week the new store will open at 7 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 29.
