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.

Delray Beach Voted One Of Florida’s “Unsung Beach Towns” By Southern Living Magazine

Along the waterway in downtown Delray Beach, Florida

Delray Beach was recently featured as one of “Florida’s Unsung Beach Towns” in Southern Living Magazine’s Summer 2017 Edition. Along with famed New Smyrna Beach, Delray was named one of the two best coastal communities you probably never heard of. A pathway to paradise, as this celebrated southern magazine put it, Delray Beach really is Miami’s baby cousin. You’ll find a level of sophistication to the colorful boutiques, dining, and nightlife here. This coastal town, with a population of over 60,000, is roughly 50 miles north of Miami Beach on A1A. Delray’s main strip, Atlantic Avenue, offers water views, fresh food, shopping, art, culture, gaming, and beachfront accommodations for out of towners. Downtown is also nationally known for the Garlic Fest, Delray Affair, On The Ave, and during the holiday season, the famous 100 foot Christmas Tree with animated displays. Luckily, the heart of palm-lined downtown Delray Beach is compact enough to be relatively walkable. Also noted in Southern Living were some beaches to the north of Delray, including Juno Beach Park and John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, both offering pristine sands and seashell collecting!
