Madeira Beach, Florida -- The oldest Publix grocery store closed its doors today, but only for a short while.

The store, constructed in the 1950's, is located on the corner of 150th Avenue and Duhme Road in Madeira Beach.

Publix says it tries to spruce up older locations, but in this case they will demolish the building then rebuild it by the end of the year.

The new plaza will have three tenant spaces, a liquor store, and space for a restaurant or lease.
