Earthfare Seminole Has Officially Re-opened!

Earthfare Seminole FL

As many of you know the Earthfare Grocery Store in the Seminole City Center has re-opened as of January 23rd, 2021!

While the store chose to do a "soft opening" without all the fanfare that you may remember from the original Grand Opening back in 2016, residents were eager to check out the new version of this community specialty health food store as it re-opened this week after being closed back in February 2020 after the company filed for Bankruptcy. We decided to go check out the newly opened version ourselves this week to see how it compares to the original store that we all grew to know and love.

For starters, the front exterior looks exactly the same as it did before for the most part. Upon entering the building, the general layout of the store seemed to be the same too, with fresh produce displayed in the front, the butcher station in the back left corner, the bakery and deli towards the rear right corner.

The aisles seemed to be spaced out a little wider than before, likely to give shoppers more space during the covid-19 pandemic, and some aisles had obvious empty spaces waiting for more goods to arrive.

Upon browsing the products currently in the store, we were still able to find a good selection of the items we'd come to love before it closed last year, including a variety of ethnic foods, a (mostly) stocked vitamin/probiotic section, gluten free foods, vegan items and more that you would expect at a local specialty store.

We were happy to see that bulk foods wall was still in operation, with a fabulous variety of nuts and legumes, as well as our favorite items from the candy section!

The dairy wall was stocked with organic milk products and many dairy alternatives. Thankfully the cheese section nearby and the olive bar (another one of our favorite parts of this store!) were also back in operation and seemed well-stocked.

Last but not least, we HAD to check the bakery section. While all the items were not put out yet due to our arrival at 8:30am, the items that were available at that time of day didn't disappoint!

It will certainly be interesting to see how the new store performs given it has a new competitor this time around just down the street (Sprouts Farmer's Market) that offers a similar selection of products and business model. When we asked if the points program is coming back to reward frequent shoppers, the cashier that we spoke to said the new owners had not finalized the rewards program yet in the new store model. However, they were hopeful that something would be coming soon. In the meantime, shopper should take advantage of the "Daily Deals" the store offers, ranging from $5 rotisserie chickens to $6 take & bake pizzas on Fridays.
