Some grocery stores have cult-like followings, and Publix is one of them.
The Florida-based supermarket chain is known for its consistent store layouts, its BOGO sales and, of course, its beloved chicken tender “Pub Subs.”

In the summer of ‘85 my bff and I made a pact that no matter where we were or what we were doing, if “Rock the Casbah” is playing you are required to dance.— Lady Lawya (@Parkerlawyer) June 2, 2018
So I would like to apologize to these strangers here at Publix.
But a pact is a pact.

I used to work at Publix when I was 16 and I loved nothing more than to blow my $5.75/hr paycheck on Publix bakery cheesecake as soon as I got paid lol— Arya Shark, doo doo, doo doo doo doo (@TrulyTafakari) March 30, 2018
Cant wait to go home to Florida so I can eat a Publix chicken tender sub and make out with an alligator.— Raya (@RayaVlogs) June 15, 2017
No crying in public. But you can cry in Publix, the grocery store, that's fine.— Mat Johnson (@mat_johnson) April 12, 2016

I went to Whole Foods because I’ve been to the same Publix three times in three days and it was feeling weird. But then Whole Foods didn’t have what I needed so I went back to the Publix and hid my face. Catch it next week on Law and Order: Boring Unit.— Stephanie Hayes (@stephhayes) March 6, 2019
