Lovers of Whole Foods Market's fresh produce, five-step animal welfare rating system, and community programs in west Broward will have a lot more to love when WFM in Plantation moves to a larger space in Davie.
The company has just announced plans to relocate its store in Plantation to a new site, less than a half-mile from the current location.
The new store will be located at 1801 S. University Drive, in the Town and Country Shoppes plaza, occupying the former K-Mart space. The new location will feature 42,000 square feet of retail space -- 13,000 square feet larger than the current Plantation location. Additional size, of course, means a larger selection of products and expanded services like cooking demonstrations and family programs.
The current store, located on Peters Road, opened in 1997. So far, there's no word on when the Peters Road location will close and if there will be a gap between the new store opening and the old store closing. The Davie location is scheduled to open in late 2014.
Clean Plate Charlie will update you with any new information as we receive it.
