Emotional Tribute To Tarpon Springs Police Officer From His Wife
The wife of a Tarpon Springs Police Officer made an emotional tribute to him for First Responder Friday this week. Christina told us about her husband, Blake. Blake has been a police officer for almost a year. Before that, he was in the military as a reservist in the Air Force.
Every Friday we honor a first responder in Tampa Bay. Do you have someone in your life that is a first responder? Someone that you admire, a relative, a friend? Whoever it is that you want to spotlight. We want to hear from you, and you can nominate someone right now by doing so HERE. The nomination process takes about five minutes. Once you nominate someone we will be in touch with you to schedule a call with you.
Ranking The Best Tampa Publix Stores
Everybody has an opinion about SOMETHING! But we never would’ve thought to review a grocery store. It seems funny to rate a store that has the same items, specials, and prices. But hey, that’s what the internet is for, to voice your opinion. The Tampa area has an insane amount of Publix locations, so we’re going to rank the 25 most popular locations from best to worst based off of Google reviews. The locations range from Lutz to Temple Terrace, to Bayshore/Gandy. We say “ranking” but really each Publix store has over a 4-star rating. So no matter where you shop, you’ll more than likely have a pleasant experience.
Publix stores are scattered all around Tampa. It’s not uncommon to go out of your way to go your “better” Publix rather than what’s closer. We’ll admit we’re kind of guilty for this, but only when it comes to getting a Pub Sub. We just know there are some people at our usual Publix store that just have that special touch (or are able to roll a FAT wrap). There are also some Publix stores that don’t have a liquor store next to it. One common complaint you hear from someone who’s not visiting their normal Publix is that they have no idea where anything is. Every Publix has a different layout, so when you visit one that’s not your usual, it’s almost like stepping into another world.
How We Created The Publix Rankings.
According to the Publix website, there’s 20 Publix stores in and very near the Tampa area. Then we went to Google reviews to see how many that store has and what people were saying. If you usually go to the Publix off Bayshore, then you’re not going to go out of your way to Dale Mabry just because of a couple opinions. But if there is one in your area with a higher ranking, then maybe you can try it out!
