Organic and specialty foods grocery store Earth Fare has opened in Palm Beach Gardens. The 24,000-square-foot outpost, at 4925 PGA Blvd. in the Mainstreet at Midtown Shopping Center, is the chain’s first Southeast Florida location.

Earth Fare broke ground in January on another store that’s now under construction at The Cobblestone Plaza in Boynton Beach.

Representatives of Earth Fare did not comment on when the Boynton Beach location could open for business.

About 130 people are hired to staff each location.

Established in 1975, the brand has more than 40 locations across the U.S. It offers more than 750 private brand food products that are all non-GMO.

The Palm Beach Gardens location has a juice bar, salad bar, hot foods bar, pizza station, sandwich counter and packaged meals-on-the-go. Its cafe has free Wi-Fi.

With its entrance into the tri-county area, Earth Fare is penetrating a fiercely competitive market for grocers. Specialty and organic brands such as Trader Joe’s, The Fresh Market, Whole Foods Market – in addition to mainstream chains like Publix Super Markets, Walmart Neighborhood Market and Aldi – are all competing for a share of South Florida’s diverse and heavily populated neighborhoods. Sprouts Farmers Market, another natural and organic grocer, also recently announced plans to expand in South Florida.

Everything You Need to Know About the New Gardens Grocery Store

By Sarah Peters – Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

A small but growing North Carolina-based grocery chain that bans high fructose corn syrup, artificial fats and similar ingredients will open its first Palm Beach County store on PGA Boulevard Wednesday.

Earth Fare will open 7 a.m. in the Mainstreet at Midtown development just west of Military Trail. The first 500 shoppers will get gift cards for $5 and up, and one winner will get a $1,000 card. The celebration starts 6:45 a.m.

There will be a DJ, free coffee from Counter Culture and an apple giveaway from Allamanda Elementary School Principal Marilu Garcia, along with demonstrations and samples.

The first Earth Fare started in 1975 as a one-room shop in Asheville, North Carolina, known as “Dinner for the Earth,” the idea being that food grown in an ecologically-friendly way is good for Earth, spokeswoman Laurie Aker said.

The name changed to Earth Fare, and the store began opening other locations in the 1990s.

The 24,000-square-foot Palm Beach Gardens store will be Earth Fare’s 44th location and the ninth in Florida, Aker said. The chain spans 10 states, from Michigan to Florida.

Earth Fare CEO Frank Scorpiniti wouldn’t go into specifics on future plans for stores in Palm Beach County, but during an interview with The Palm Beach Post, he said there are several more planned in South Florida.

“This is a very vibrant community. We think consumers here are looking for the cleanest food to feed themselves and their families,” Scorpiniti said of the Palm Beach Gardens area. “There’s a lot of hustle here, a pretty dense population. This convenience helps them out quite a lot.”

A 25-member community advisory board of parents, city officials and medical professionals met before the store opening to help choose the selection of dairy products, grass-fed meat, seafood, produce and prepared food that will be available.

“That really helps us set the table,” Scorpiniti said.

The brand’s “boot list” of banned ingredients includes added hormones, antibiotics, artificial fats/transfats, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, artificial preservatives, bleached or bromated flour and artificial colors or flavors. Even the red velvet cake in the bakery is made with beet juice instead of artificial coloring, Aker said.

There’s an emphasis on local products — local meaning from within 150 miles or less. Bags of Pumphouse and Oceana Coffee are on the shelves, and Funky Buddha beer is in the coolers.

Earth Fare has a partnership with Inland Seafood to get fresh fish, Aker said. The beef is grass-fed, and the sausage is made by hand.

An on-site wellness specialist is available to advise customers on everything from vitamins to makeup. All of the wellness and beauty products are cruelty-free, and some are vegan-friendly.

In its Heirloom Organic Cafe and Juice Bar, Earth Fare says it uses organic fruits, veggies and juices, with no sugar added.

In February, the company announced that it would remove genetically-modified organisms from its Earth Fare brand products.

Does Earth Fare’s approach mean the products are out of a thrifty shopper’s price range?

“There’s truly a little something for everyone’s budget and goals,” Aker said. “It’s all about making healthy eating affordable and accessible.”

Sprouts Plans Durham Opening Date

May 31, 2018

SSprouts opening in Durham By   – Staff Writer, Triangle Business Journal

Construction is progressing at a new Sprouts Farmers Market in south Durham, setting up the grocer to open this summer.

The Phoenix-based company has announced an opening date of Aug. 22 for its newest location. In the meantime, the company is on the hunt for employees. The grocer is looking to hire about 140 full- and part-time workers before its opening.

The new location, in the shell of a former Harris Teeter at 105 West Highway 54, is the company’s fourth in North Carolina. The first opened on Falls of Neuse Road in north Raleigh last year. Since then, two more stores have opened in Charlotte and Fayetteville.

The south Durham Sprouts store will total 30,000 square feet, which is a smaller-than-typical footprint that representative Kalia Pang says is part of the store’s strategy.

The grocer’s trademark layout concept is to set produce in the center of the store. “That’s the main traffic driver that we’re known for,” Pang says.

The concept will be employed at the south Durham store. The company has been eyeing expansion in the Triangle because of growing interest in fresh and organic produce in the area, Pang says.

The grocer offers regular and organic fruits and vegetables at a price range that is 20 percent to 25 percent below average, Pang says. She attributes the price reduction to the company’s long-standing relationship with its produce providers and its high volume of sales.

Sprouts is the latest grocer to make inroads in the Triangle. Publix, Wegmans and Aldi have all been seeking to enter and expand in the market in recent years.

With Earth Fare, Ulta and Five Below, Oldsmar’s Woodlands Square was rebuilt to withstand the retail apocalypse

April 16, 2018

April 16, 2018

By Ashley Gurbal Kritzer via Tampa Bay Business Journal

For all of the doom and gloom surrounding brick-and-mortar retail, Woodlands Square in Oldsmar had never suffered too badly.
The 315,000-square-foot shopping center did struggle with some vacancy in the years following the Great Recession, but its owner, Palm Beach Gardens-based Ram Realty Advisors, was pleased with the property.

“I would say that this property recovered pretty nicely even prior to redevelopment,” said Jonathan Porter, Ram’s vice president of asset management and finance.

Still, with the center’s size and position off Tampa Road, Ram felt it could be doing even better. In late 2016, the group kicked off a massive redevelopment effort that brought in new anchor tenants and restaurants and renovated existing portions of the center. A two-way ingress and egress, at the Tampa Road light, was also added to improve access.

What made the redevelopment doable was a lineup of retailers that are in growth mode, even in an era of declining sales and shuttering storefronts. Specialty grocer Earth Fare’s commitment to the center was pivotal for the redevelopment, Porter said; Ulta Beauty drives foot traffic with an in-store salon and aisles of makeup to swatch and sample. Teen discount chain Five Below, where items are all $5 or less, has also succeeded in reeling in shoppers.

Restaurants were a big component of the redevelopment. The proprietors of Craft Street Kitchen, which is already in the center, opened Shaker n Peel, a new concept in the center. Green Market Café, Ruby Tuesday and Eve’s Family Restaurant also remain in the center.

Market timing was also a factor; Ram was comfortable with the spread between the cost of the redevelopment and the returns it could earn on rental rates, Porter said.

That spread, along with the fact that the property is held in a closed-end fund, means that Ram will likely consider selling the property in the months ahead.

“I would like to say we will be owning this thing five years from now because I think the best days are ahead of it,” he said.

Ram didn’t disclose the overall investment in the redevelopment, but renovating the center’s movie theater, AMC 20, represents $7 million alone — costs that the landlord and tenant shared.

“When you have tenants willing to put up their own capital and renovate, you know you’re doing something right,” Porter said.

Ulta, Porter said, isn’t just a win in terms of driving shoppers to the center. Building the new, stand-alone store in the middle of the parking lot — an expansive area that “looked like multiple football fields” — helped bring the center together visually. “It really connected the two sides and made it feel more like one center,” he said.

Woodlands Square Completes Redevelopment with New Tenants, Strong Anchor Mix, and More

April 9, 2018

Woodland-Square-11418 (002)_Page_05

April 9, 2018

OLDSMAR, FL — Less than two years ago, the pressing questions in Oldsmar were what grocery store planned to open at Woodlands Square and what other changes might the owners make as part of the center’s major redevelopment?

After demolishing functionally obsolete space near the back of the center to make way for new tenants and better traffic flow, today the 315,000 SF center is home to a diverse line-up of major anchor tenants.  What’s new?

  • The 24,000 SF specialty organic and natural foods grocer, Earth Fare, adding a vital component to the diverse tenant mix
  • A $7 million renovation and long-term lease extension of the existing AMC Theatre that features plush power-recliner seating, an IMAX theatre, online ticketing, reserved seating, and renovated concession area
  • Backfilled the former Office Depot with the addition of PetSmart and Five Below
  • Constructed a free-standing Ulta cosmetics which further strengthens a retail anchor tenant draw that includes Beall’s, Marshall’s, and Dollar Tree
  • Shaker n Peel, a new restaurant concept owned and operated by the proprietor of the highly successful onsite Craft Street Kitchen, further solidifying an already eclectic restaurant component that includes Green Market Café, Ruby Tuesday, and long-time local favorite Eve’s Family Restaurant
  • New building facades, new signage throughout, roofing, paint, parking lots, parking lighting, landscaping, and awnings
  • A two-way ingress/egress drive via the Tampa Road signalized intersection

“Whether through new construction, lease extensions, lease amendments, or tenant relocations, we touched roughly 270,000 square feet — roughly 85 percent — at Woodlands as part of this extensive redevelopment,” says Jonathan Porter, VP-Asset Management & Finance for Ram Realty Advisors, the property owner. “The tenant mix takes advantage of our prime location; we are 96 percent occupied and we believe it is because of our commitment to transformative redevelopment of a center that was first constructed in 1987.

“Not only did we bring in new tenants that will help increase traffic and drive sales for the balance of the center, but we spent time and effort to take care of our existing tenancy, assuring residents of Oldsmar and the surrounding communities of a great destination for entertainment, dining, shopping, personal services, and more.”

“We can’t think of a better location in the area for us than Woodlands Square,” said Frank Scorpiniti, president and CEO of Earth Fare. “Oldsmar shoppers have welcomed us with open arms, and we’ve been honored to bring to them the broadest assortment of clean, healthy foods available anywhere these past several months. We look forward to continuing to serve our new friends and neighbors.”

Woodland Square is also home to other national tenants Anytime Fitness, Coast Dental, Fantastic Sam’s, Kids Park, Pinot’s Palette, and Salon Lofts. Local tenants include Janice Brand DDS, T&T Nails, Perfections Hair Salon, My Greek Corner, Richard’s Foodporium, Eve’s Florist, and Ruth Fashions.

Located 20 minutes northwest of downtown Tampa, in Pinellas County (the most popular destination on Florida’s Gulf of Mexico), this prime location boasts 78,000 VPD at the Tampa Road and Curlew Road intersection, and excellent target demographics for its tenants with an average household income of $81,199 and 73,548 residents (with projected growth of 3% by 2022) in a three-mile radius, and daytime employment of 34,167.
