TODAY is the Pre-Opening Reception - Vilano Beach Publix - January 12, 2012 at 4 p.m.
Please stop by the Vilano Beach Publix today, Thursday, January 12th at 4 p.m. The first 500 people will receive insulated Publix bags that also say Vilano Beach Town Center---how cool is that? (um---no pun intended)
Pre-ceremony entertainment from 3:30 to 4:00 will be provided by the Florida School for the Deaf & Blind "Outta Sight" choral group. The last song they will do before the ceremony is "America the Beautiful". I am told they have a guy who sounds just like Ray Charles. The President of the School, Danny Hutto, will be there, and he said this group is amazingly fabulous. Bill Sabo, the music director, lives in North Beach.
About seven local restaurants will be providing food along with the big cake (3'x 5') provided by Publix. The public will be allowed to form a line to go into the lobby to peek inside the store.
The Vilano Beach Town Center Publix grand opening will be Saturday, January 14th. Doors open at 8 a.m. Then the normal store hours will be 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Local residents just received a welcome brochure in the mail with a $5 coupon. Come one, come all!
Welcome Publix to Vilano!
