Hollywood Gains A Publix - Loses a Publix

You know that old empty car dealership at Sheridan St and US1? It's going to be a Publix shopping center called West Lake Commons. You know that Publix down the street from there at 401 E Sheridan St? It will close when the new one opens.

The new Publix shopping center will also get a Starbucks and a Pollo Tropical.

No word on what, if anything will replace the current Publix. I hope they don't plan to replace it with nothing at all. I feel bad for all those people in all those apartments around there that probably just walked across the street to get groceries. I also doubt it will help any of the businesses in that shopping center thrive. Pancho's Backyard comes to mind.
