Column: Publix shopping center on Thompson Bridge Road had a modest start
Johnny Vardeman
One of the busiest shopping centers in Hall County started out in 1957 with only four businesses. It is called by most shoppers today “the Publix shopping center” on Thompson Bridge Road. It contains a variety of businesses besides the Publix supermarket that anchors it. In the main building, there’s an auto parts store, an income tax business, a furniture store, Dollar General, a Mexican restaurant and a UPS store. In the overall shopping center that runs from Enota Avenue to the WDUN radio station, there’s a convenience store, barber shop, wine store, “scrubs” business and dry cleaners.
