OK so we are going to get a Publix eventually. This Publix will be built above a parking lot, for all practical purposes on the second floor of a building, How does a shopper get to their car ( on the lower floor) with a cart full of groceries? Take an elevator? An escalator? Or a ramp?
The plan is to park on the ground floor, correct?  Can you show some pictures of how this little detail is handled at the other Publix built this way please.

I live next to a Whole Foods built over a garage (and at the bottom of a huge apartment building). There's a handy cart escalator which everyone who drives uses. Walk up a ramp, go down the cart escalator. Easy peasy

The Publix at the Aventura Mall near Hollywood, FL is built like this. They have really big elevators down to the garage. It's a super busy store but it works well, just gotta have elevator manners

Pretty sure the plan is 4 large elevators, but personally I’m a fan of the cart escalator. Saw one for the first time in a Target like 20 years ago.

Of the two Targets I go to, one is at grade with surface parking and one is on a second floor in a parking garage. I prefer the parking garage one. There's no risk of rain and you don't get the heat island effect in the summer. I would have to imagine it's more effective at loss prevention as well, since you aren't able to exit as quickly.

That is also a Regency Centers property and one of the inspirations for this configuration.
