ASHEVILLE, NC – Earth Fare, the rapidly growing authentic specialty organic and natural foods grocery store, proudly announces that it will bring clean, healthy food choices to Oldsmar, Florida this fall. The 24,000 square-foot store will be part of the Woodlands Square development at 3130 Tampa Rd, adjacent to Beall’s. The 28.3-acre shopping center is currently being redeveloped by Palm Beach Gardens-based Ram Realty.
“We are thrilled to have Earth Fare as one of the centerpiece tenants in this redevelopment,” said Brian Maloney, managing director of retail at Ram Realty. “We have received overwhelming support from the City of Oldsmar each step of the process and the residents will soon have new shopping, dining, and entertainment options. All of this continues our commitment to making the places where we do business better.”
This will be the second Tampa-area location for Earth Fare, which opened a location in Seminole in September 2016, and also has locations in Gainesville, Tallahassee, Ocala, and Jacksonville. Other upcoming openings include a second Jacksonville store in the Mandarin community in August; and Roanoke, Virginia this fall. Earth Fare currently operates 41 stores in nine states.
“At Earth Fare, we believe the better you eat, the longer you live. Americans deserve a store where they can find all of the products they need to help their families lead longer, healthier lives, and we are looking forward to bringing our mission of providing healthy food for everyone to the Oldsmar community,” said Frank Scorpiniti, CEO of Earth Fare. “Earth Fare’s unparalleled commitment to keeping our products free of harmful additives means you can shop our store and be confident that your cart is full of healthy, wholesome options.”
Earth Fare made headlines earlier this year when they challenged Americans to take back control of their health through their food choices and Live Longer With Earth Fare ™. Since 1975, Earth Fare has distinguished itself as a leader in the health foods industry by developing a unique Food Philosophy that informs every product offered in the store. This Food Philosophy ensures that all products sold are free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial fats and trans-fats, artificial colors, artificial preservatives, artificial sweeteners, bleached or bromated flour, and are never administered antibiotics or growth hormones. In addition, Earth Fare just announced that its more than 500 private brand food products are now sourced using only non-GMO ingredients, and new products are added to the shelves each day.
Beyond groceries, the new store will also feature Earth Fare’s Heirloom Organic Juice Bar, which features 100% Certified Organic coffees, smoothies, and juices, including custom blends as well as convenient freshly prepared bottles for the person on-the-go. Shoppers will also find a wide variety of organic choices at Earth Fare’s kitchen, featuring fresh ready-to-go meal solutions including salad bar, hot foods bar, pizza station, sandwich counter, and conveniently packaged meals-on-the-go. Shoppers can enjoy a homemade meal without the work, whether dining in the indoor and outdoor 80-seat café with free Wi-Fi or in the comfort of their own home.
Earth Fare is not the only exciting improvement in the Woodlands. Several vacant spaces on the west side of Woodlands have been removed to make way for new construction, and several other store front exteriors as well as the AMC theatre are being refreshed. The redevelopment will also include a new constructed pathway to improve connectivity to Canal Park, located just half a mile away from the shopping center.
