Tuesday Morning discount store opens at Gateway

A Tuesday Morning discount store is open at Gateway Market Center at 8101 Dr. M.L. King Jr. St. N next to PetSmart. It is part of a national chain known for selling closeout items from department stores, boutiques and catalogs. Although the stores are regularly replenished with new merchandise, they kick off sales and special events the first Tuesday of each month. The 800 stores have a self-serve, no-frills design with merchandise divided into categories including home decor, books, glassware, china, luggage, bedding, toys, gourmet foods, cookware, flatware, and seasonal items such as lawn and garden furniture. Other stores are at Tyrone Gardens at 931 Tyrone Blvd. N and Barclay Square at 13819 Walsingham Road in Largo.

Expanded Publix will reopen at 34th St. N

The 35,000-square-foot Publix at 1700 34th St. N has closed and will reopen as a 45,000-square-foot store. "That store opened in August of 1973. It's a pretty old one," said Publix spokeswoman Shannon Patten. "With our growing customer base and the loyal customers we have in that community, we decided it's time to give them a new store that is much larger and could offer a wider selection of products." The new store will have more natural and organic products and a pharmacy. Construction should take nine months once it starts. Store employees were placed at other stores and will have first dibs on jobs when the new Publix is ready.
