MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) -— Publix has opened its first store on a college campus at the University of South Florida.

The Lakeland-based supermarket chain said more than 50 of the 140 employees are university students. The store opened Thursday in Tampa.

The university is leasing the 28,000 square-foot (2601 sq. meter) store to Publix for 25 years.

The store is slightly smaller than most of the chain’s other locations but includes full-service floral and seafood departments.
