Whole Foods 365 Coming To Delray Beach

As reported by The Real Deal, South Florida Real Estate News, Delray Beach will be getting the first Whole Foods 365 location in Florida in early 2019. Located at 60 West Linton Boulevard, this new take on a long term favorite, which will measure about 40,000 square feet, will offer more prepared foods for in-store dining than regular Whole Foods stores. The first 365 store opened in April 2016 in Los Angeles, pictured above (credit: John Verive, Los Angeles Times.) The smaller than usual store offers a simple way to shop where fresh, healthy foods are affordable every day. According to Jeff Garrison, a partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises, the developer of Delray Plaza, the pending arrival of the store has encouraged other retailers to lease space there. Possible neighboring stores could include spas, fitness facilities, salons, and casual, quick-service restaurants.
