Perdido Area Residents are happy to see these piles of rubble at the corner of Innerarity Point Rd. and Sorrento Rd……
Why, you may ask?
Because no later than October, that pile of rubble will look much like this:
Founded in 1930, Publix is the largest and fastest growing employee owned supermarket chain in the U.S., employing more than 142,000 people with 729 stores in Florida alone. This Fortune 500 Company has more than 1000 stores nationwide and was named one of Fortune’s 100 best companies to work for from 1998-2009. That is great news for an area plagued by continued job losses and a high long-term unemployment rate.
After speaking with some of the construction crew on site today, I also learned that the above piles of rubble will be used to construct the new building and parking lot, keeping in line with their commitment to sustainability. Sustainability is defined as creating a balance with the needs of humanity with the needs of the living earth. Additionally, new stores are designed to use 23% less energy than existing stores, illustrating the company’s commitment to conservation. The Get into a Green Routine program established in 2001 is a program designed to implement environmentally responsible practices including education, energy conservation, waste reduction, recycling and water conservation. These efforts have saved 930M kilowatt hours through conservation projects equaling a reduction of more than 500,000 tons of greenhouse gas (enough to provide electricity to 64,000 homes for a year).
Since the loss of Alice Guy’s popular specialty market, Alice’s Gourmet, to Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the area has been craving items such as fresh baked bread, specialty olive oil, olives in brine, Boar’s Head meats and cheeses and fresh mozzarella balls. Additionally, the grocer also has an organic line of products aptly named Greenwise, sustainable seafood and an impressive bakery. The residents and visitors of Perdido and Perdido Key will only have to wait a mere 9 more months before projected completion to enjoy this premier specialty grocery store.
Stay tuned for more pictures and updates as the construction crew makes progress. Publix just gave you one more reason to visit our area and discover paradise!
Happy New Year from Perdido Key and Pensacola Beach! If you didn’t get to come see us in 2009, here’s hoping our beautiful beaches are in your plans for 2010. Even the sagging economy did little to prevent visitors from heading to the Gulf Coast in 2009. From October 1st-September 30th, 2009, the Pensacola Bay Area recorded the second highest numbers in lodging revenue, generating $133M, only second to the 2007-2008 season which generated $138M. Additionally, area attractions recorded increased visitors in 2009 with the Historic Pensacola Village up 41.3% and the National Aviation Museum up 15.2%.
Travel deals are easily found, with flights and rental car rates slashed to attract passengers as well as monthly condo rates as low as $1000. Visit www.pointesouth.com to view our available condominiums and specials. Furthermore, an $80M renovation is underway at the Gulf Coast Regional Airport, including a state of the art baggage handling system, new ticketing and rental car area, expanded parking and additional stores to make your next traveling experience a memorable one.

We are heading in to a three day weekend on the beautiful Gulf Coast. For many area businesses, it will be the last BIG BANG of the summer. Local residents will get to stop and smell the salt air before gearing up for a busy snowbird and holiday season. Fall is the best time of year to enjoy the beach. The crowds are gone, the weather is perfect and the rates at local condos and beach homes are low. With so much to do this time of year, I thought I’d take this opportunity to remind you of some upcoming events you won’t want to miss….
The Gulf Shores 38th Annual Shrimp Festival will be held October 8-11th, featuring over 300 vendors and attracting over 300,000 visitors to the Gulf Coast. There will be art, crafts, jewelry and plenty of SHRIMP. There will also be a variety of entertainment, including the talented Lee Ann Womack on October 9th from 8:30-10:00. This year’s festival promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Taste of Pensacola will be held September 19th and 20th in Downtown Pensacola at historic Seville Square. Admission to this event is free and will feature some of Pensacola’s best restaurants and entertainment.
The 32nd Annual Pensacola Seafood Festival will feature over 180 arts and craft vendors, live music by local and regional acts, cooking demonstrations, a 5k run/walk, children’s area and much more! This event has the distinction of being named one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast by the Southern Tourism Society. Admission to this event is also free and will be held September 25th-27th in Historic Downtown Pensacola’s Seville Square overlooking Pensacola Bay.
With so much to do, you too, should take time to stop and smell the salt air and relax with the locals!
