ASHEVILLE, NC – Earth Fare, the authentic specialty organic and natural foods grocery store, is proud to announce that St. Johns County residents will soon have access to the Cleanest, healthiest foods available when it opens on October 16th. The 24,000 square-foot store will be located in the Shoppes at St. Johns Parkway at 120 Shops Blvd. Earth Fare also operates two other locations on the eastern coast of Northern Florida, in Jacksonville and Mandarin.
Earth Fare invites the community to join them for a Grand Opening event on Wednesday, October 16 just before 7 a.m. The celebration will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and check presentation to Landrum Middle School to fund the enhancement of their Buddy Garden, which teaches students and the community about growing healthy food. The ceremony will be followed by a mystery gift card giveaway valued at up to $500 to the first 300 shoppers in line, giveaways, live music, and more. Plus, each shopper will receive a free reusable tote bag with each Healthy Rewards sign-up. Earth Fare’s Healthy Rewards program connects shoppers with the best deals, punch cards to earn free products, and exclusive recipes.
“We are pleased to make it easy for the St John’s community to access delicious, healthy food with great overall value,” said Frank Scorpiniti, president and CEO of Earth Fare. “St. Johns is a vibrant, growing community with a demand for healthy food, and with this new store, we will provide convenient access to the Cleanest assortment of products for our shoppers in the region.”
Beyond groceries, the new store will feature Earth Fare’s Heirloom Juice Bar, which serves juices, smoothies, and fresh coffee. Shoppers will also find a wide variety of Clean, natural choices in Earth Fare’s prepared foods department, including the salad bar, hot foods bar, pizza station, sandwich counter, and conveniently packaged meals-on-the-go. Whether dining in the indoor/outdoor café, equipped with free Wi-Fi for guests, or taking food to go, shoppers can enjoy their homemade favorites without the hassle. Additionally, the St. Johns location will offer the ease and convenience of grocery delivery, powered by Instacart, providing customers with more time to enjoy their healthful meals rather than shopping for them.
