DURHAM, North Carolina (WTVD) --On Wednesday, the newest entry into the Triangle grocery store wars opened its doors.
The fourth Publix in Wake County opened on Kelly Road in Apex.
The newest Publix store joins an increasingly crowded field of supermarkets vying for consumer dollars in the Triangle.
The established power stores in the local grocery wars - Kroger, Harris Teeter and Food Lion - have many stores in most communities.
Publix has three more stores open already - two are in Cary, one at 1020 Bradford Plaza Way and the other at 3480 Kildaire Farm Road.

The third location is in Wake Forest, at 1030 Forestville Road. The chain is hoping to open a Durham location in 2018 pending zoning approval. The project also faces opposition from some nearby residents.
And Wegmans is opening a couple of its stores, giving shoppers even more choices.
Publix was founded in 1930 in Winter Haven, Florida and is now the largest employee-owned grocery chain in the United States.
