Publix stores are everywhere in SWFL and if you’re ever wondered which Publix in Fort Myers might be better than others, I’ve done the heavy lifting for you.

Much like everyone has the Pub Sub they like best, I’m sure everyone has a Publix they prefer over others. Where I live in Fort Myers, I have 4 of them within just a few miles. One I could walk to if I really wanted (no thank you, Florida sun). But I always go a little further to the “fancy” Publix. The one right at McGregor and Gladiolus. While I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is that sets it apart, it has a feel of class to it that I enjoy.

In this day and age everyone has an opinion. Remember the chicken sandwich wars over Chick-fil-A vs Popeye’s? And everyone likes to the share it. So here we are with the Publix wars of Fort Myers.

How I Created the Ranking of Publix stores in Fort Myers:

Looking at the Publix website, there are 15 Publix stores in Fort Myers. While I mentioned my favorite above, and I haven’t been to every single one, I decided to expand out of my personal feelings. So Google reviews it is. Here they are ranked from best to worst, based on internet reviews. If you want to see the Cape Coral rankings, those are here.

    On top thanks to reviews like this: “What is not to like? Very clean,first of all. And the employees were super attentive and friendly. I easily found everything I needed. And the fresh food was so fresh! I also found plenty of gluten free and plant based foods which I usually order from whole foods or Amazon. I will continue to shop here”
