Report: Publix to Install Health Information Kiosks in GreenWise Markets

Lakeland, Fla., Publix Super Markets plans to install health and wellness information kiosks in its Publix GreenWise Market stores to provide shoppers with healthy living ideas and recipes during their shopping trips, according to ProgressiveGrocer.com.

Publix will offer Healthnotes Connect "Fresh Ideas" kiosks from Portland, Ore.-based Healthnotes, Inc. in response to growing consumer interest in health and healthy eating.

The installation will be an in-store extension of a service Publix has been using online for the past three years under the "Wellness & Pharmacy" section of its Web site.

Publix's first stand-alone GreenWise Market store is slated to open this fall in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Additional GreenWise markets are planned to open in 2008 and 2009.
