Whole Foods Market wants to open a new store in Uptown Boca, Florida.
The residents of west Boca Raton will soon have a new option for grocery shopping, as Whole Foods Market is set to open a new store in Uptown Boca, an upscale mixed-use development on Glades Road just east of U.S. 441.
Whole Foods Market is the world’s leading natural and organic foods retailer, with over 500 stores in North America and the United Kingdom.
The company is known for its high-quality products, ethical sourcing, environmental sustainability, and community involvement.
The new store will be the seventh Whole Foods Market in Palm Beach County and the second location in the Boca Raton area, about a 15-minute drive from the existing store at 1400 Glades Road. It will also be the second new Whole Foods Market coming to southern Palm Beach County, as another store is being built west of Boynton Beach.
The opening date and size of the new store have not been disclosed yet, but typically, Whole Foods Market locations range in size from 25,000 to 50,000 square feet.
The store will join a diverse and dynamic roster of tenants at Uptown Boca, which offers approximately 195,000 square feet of retail and dining space and 456 luxury rental apartments.
“We couldn’t be more excited for Whole Foods Market to become part of Uptown Boca,” said Brian Schmier, CEO of Schmier Property Group. “Announcing Whole Foods Market as our anchor grocery store is truly a home run for Uptown Boca and the entire west Boca community. Uptown Boca has quickly become the go-to shopping and dining destination in west Boca Raton.”
Uptown Boca provides all the components of “shop, dine, live” in an elevated, integrated, walkable environment. Whole Foods Market will be one of around 28 retailers and restaurants at the development.
