If you live in or around The Villages in West Palm Beach, your wait is over. After 11 months of construction, the new Publix at Village Commons Shopping Center will reopen on Thursday at 7 a.m.

The first 1,500 customers on Thursday will receive a complimentary customized Publix insulated reusable bag, and $100 gift card giveaways will take place in store every day for the first week.

The new store, rebuilt on the location of the old one and expanded into part of a former adjacent restaurant, will be 45,000 square feet, compared with 38,000 square feet before the rebuild.

The grocery aisles have been expanded to allow for an extended product offering of natural and organic foods and ethnic foods, according to the company.

Approximately 150 Publix associates will be employed at the new store.

“We are so excited to open our doors again and can’t wait for our long time customers at this location to see all the enhancements their new Publix has to offer,” said Nicole Krauss, Publix’s Miami media and community relations manager. “We anticipate that our customers will be very pleased with the state-of-the-art design, additional space, products and services offered.”

The original store opened in 1987, and was remodeled in 2004 and again in 2009.

Celebrations will continue for the first 14 days with special events and activities including a Kids Fest, Meet the Managers, Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, Alumni and Fins Force Fan Experience.

The Village Commons Publix will be open from 7 a.m to 11 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Pharmacy hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
