Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 5:30AM - 10:00AM

If you grew up in Florida, then chances are you’ve hopped on one of these scales before.

The large green weight scales are hard to miss when you walk into a Publix in the Tampa Bay area. Thankfully, the scales aren’t going anywhere, despite the company who makes them no longer being business.

The old-school scales have been around since Publix stores first opened in the late 1930s.

Even though there are newer scales on the market, Publix is holding onto their tradition of having the original scales. Publix now has a team that repairs and refurbishes the scales.

The scales are exclusive to Publix stores in Florida.
