Will Earth Fare sell your Lewis Center, Ohio home?  Help sell? 

Earth Fare Opening April 25, 2012

Could the proximity to the new store in the Polaris area help sell your Delaware County, Ohio home?  Earth Fare opened at Polaris a couple of weeks ago.  Earth Fare is on the street west of Polaris Fashion Place, Gemini Parkwway.

Or maybe just make living in Lewis Center a little healthier?  Earth Fare is the "Healthy Supermarket."  Their sign says so. 

A NW Columbus Neighborhood and Trader Joe'sEarth Fare Supermarket at  Polaris in Columbus Ohio

Just before I heard the Earth Fare  at Polaris was opening, I was wishing for a Trader Joe's in the Polaris area... Why?  Because Consumer Reports gave Trader Joe's very, very good grades in the March 2012 issue. 

Worthingview Neighborhood and Trader Joe's

I vaguely remembered a post about a Worthington area home's proximity to Trader Joes on my Worthington real estate site. That home sold....  wonder if the couple who bought it were Trader Joes shopppers...  That home  WAS not even that close to Trader Joe's. 

I have only shopped the Trader Joe's on Sawmill a couple of times.  I like Trader Joe's.  I've shopped more at the Whole Foods kitty corner from Trader Joe's than I've shopped at Trader Joe's.   Easier to get into?  I have always found the shopping on the south east corner of Sawmill and Dublin Granville Road awkward.  

I have never been to the Trader Joe's at Easton. 

In the post about the Worthingview neighborhood and Trader Joe's I quote an article: 

"1. Your Neighborhood Trader Joe’s. Or Costco, or other outpost for daily living supplies that tends to have a rabid following. On a recent HuffingtonPost article about the Trader Joe’s grocery chain, one visitor left a comment to the effect that they selected their home largely based on its proximity to a Trader Joe’s! And buyer’s brokers will tell you - homebuyers’ eyes light up and they pay a much closer look to homes near Whole Foods, a local favorite coffeehouse or farmer’s market."

Earth Fare Healthy Supermarket PolarisSo does that mean a seller ought to move their house closer to Trader Joes' to sell?  

Earth Fare is right in the shadow of the HUGE Costco at Polaris.  By design? Rabid following...

The Lewis Center real estate market is already looking up ; - )

HOw are the prices in comparison to Trader Joe's? Trader Joe's is so reasonable!

I think it is probably higher.  I read that in Consumer Reports and was surprised that Trader Joe's was so reasonable... but I have only been so few times because it is not that close for me and the shopping center / parking lot is awkward.   

I would say Earth Fare is closer to Whole Foods in terms of pricing but I have only shopped there once.  I have been there twice but did not shop on opening day.

I have had many questions about proximity for shopping, but never about specific stores.

Lenn When we get out into the boonies looking at homes buyers have requested they start saying "Where will I shop?" I thought the access to Trader Joe's was unique, but it is probably true shoppers that have to have close to a store.  We have one Costco, two Trader Joe's, one Earth Fare. I have worked with young women who need to be near Polaris or Easton, our two current shopping meccas.

When I moved to Columbus we bought a house near Trader Joe's on Sawmill for the church it was near but I remember on Sunday morning of the shopping for a house trip being lost in the shopping area near Sawmill.  That was long before there was a Trader Joe's in Columbus.
