Earth Fare returning Aug. 18 to St. Johns County

The natural and organic grocery store is reopening after closing in February 2020 following bankruptcy.

Earth Fare scheduled a grand opening for 8 a.m. Aug. 18 in St. Johns County, returning to the Northeast Florida market after closing its three area grocery stores in February 2020.

The natural, specialty and organic grocer will open at the Shoppes of St. Johns Parkway at 120 Shops Blvd. at County Road 210 West and St. Johns Parkway.

The ribbon-cutting is 7:45 a.m., followed by specials and events. Grand-opening weekend is Aug. 20-22.

Earth Fare and shopping center owner Sleiman Enterprises said in a Jan. 14 news release the store will reopen at the Shoppes of St. Johns Parkway.

“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. 

The store opened in October 2019 and closed in February 2020, along with the rest of the chain, when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
