There is NO solution to this ripoff. Publix supermarkets prices its merchandise significantly higher that identical stock in other supermarkets. In Gainesville, FL, Publix has positioned itself in carefully selected and dispersed locations, such that its competition (Albertsons and Winn Dixie) is choked out. Generally, shoppers MUST shop at Publix, unless they agree to drive some distance (probably a few miles) to a competing supermarket. Access is the catalyst here. Surely, one might accuse the shopper of inattention. And that would not be incorrect. However, I am irked mightily by Publix insidious and astounding prices and marketing tactics, and avoid their stores.
