Naples, FL - Whole Foods Store... NOW OPEN!

By
Real Estate Agent with John R. Wood REALTORS

The Lutgert & Barron Collier Companies announces Whole Foods Grand Opening in Naples Florida is the first in Southwest Florida and replaces the North Naples Wild Oats Grocery store.I recently visited the new Whole Foods Store Grand Opening which took place on Friday September 5th, 2008.

The 52,000 square foot Whole Foods Market's at The Mercato near the intersection of Vanderbilt Beach Rd. and US41 (Tamiami Trail) is the first store in Southwest Florida.  The opening is estimated to generate approximately 100 new jobs in addition to the 100 plus employees transferred from the Wild Oats store that recently closed along Airport-Pulling Road and Naples Boulevard (near Pine Ridge Rd.) in North Naples.

The store is much larger than a normal grocer and more like a gigantic warehouse with many more offerings than the Wild Oats store in which it replaces.  Not only does it sell fresh pre-made sushi, but now they also have a large selection of fresh salads, soups, ready-to-order Chinese and gourmet pizza.

The store is ideally located to serve the newly constructed Strada at The Mercato, Pelican Marsh, Vanderbilt Beach, The Dunes, Naples Park and Pelican Bay communities.

Capital Grill is another new addition in Naples and Southwest Florida that also recently opened at The Mercato.

Hi Garren

The Whole Market is an outstanding store and shopping experience, I'm should that the Naples residence will welcome the store.

Good luck and success

Garren, I see that Lou called shopping there an experience. I think that is appropriate. A Whole Foods was opened in Birmingham I think about a year ago or so and we have enjoyed it the few times we have gone. The one here was a place to eat that I hear is quite good!
