ST. PETERSBURG -- Publix Supermarket at Northeast Shopping Center is adding a full-service pharmacy in the store.

"We don't have the exact opening date. It will be some time at the end of April," said Jay Grabowski, assistant common areas manager in the Northeast store.

Publix carved out space for the pharmacy in aisles to the right of the store entrance.

Grabowski said only two other Publix stores in the area have pharmacies: the new supermarket at Gateway Center off M.L. King (Ninth) Street N and in the Pasadena Shopping Center off Gulfport Boulevard.

Publix has pharmacies in about half of its 622 stores, according to Lee Brunson, spokesperson from the Lakeland headquarters.

Publix, which owns the Northeast Shopping Center, spent a year building its store there, which opened in May 1998. Even though the shopping center leases space to Eckerd Drugs, Brunson said market studies showed it can support two pharmacies.

Marketing rep named at Criswell

Terri L. Fleming has been named marketing representative at Criswell Blizzard and Blouin Architects Inc. in St. Petersburg. Fleming was formerly project coordinator at Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum Inc. of Tampa.
