Of course the biggest news story in Mt. Juliet last week was the demolition of the Subway on Hwy 70 behind Mapco. The Subway had hung on and continued to operate, even while it became increasingly isolated and almost absorbed into the construction site. According to their agreement with the developer, they will be re-opening soon in one of the commercial spaces adjacent to the new grocery store. It’s a sign that the new Publix Grocery Store complex must be nearing completion.
