Altogether, we found more than a dozen news outlets mentioning the delivery service as a new feature.

The thing is, Publix subs have actually been deliverable since the supermarket started using Instacart for grocery delivery about 4 or 5 years ago, Publix spokesman Brian West said. Everything in the store is.

“It’s true that it’s available, but it’s not true that it’s anything new,” said West, who added that no one called him recently to ask about sub delivery. “I think somebody just realized it. That’s all.”
