Nashville’s Grocery Wars Intensify With New Stores on the Way

Grocery stores big and small are expanding, remodeling and building new stores as they battle for market share in booming Nashville.

At least five new grocery stores are in the works in Music City — including multiple Publix stores, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Turnip Truck — as other grocery brands circle the market for available real estate. For many Nashville residents, this grocery boom will mean more shopping options, closer to home.

Take downtown, where residents have long lamented the lack of grocery options that serve the fast-growing urban core. The downtown population doubled from 2010 to 2017, surpassing 10,000 residents and 6,400 housing units, according to the Nashville Downtown Partnership.
