Earth Fare, the natural and organic grocer, announced Jan. 14 it will reopen in St. Johns County.
Earth Fare and shopping center owner Sleiman Enterprises said in a news release the store will open in the second quarter at the Shoppes of St. Johns Parkway off County Road 210 West, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
“This is a growing area and desirable location with great demographics,” said Randy Tally, co-founder, chief sustainability officer and director of leasing at Earth Fare. “This area wants a specialty healthy grocery store and we are happy to deliver the community an organic and natural foods grocery store.”
The store at 120 Shops Blvd. opened in October 2019 and closed in February, along with the rest of the chain, when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
