A milestone in the company’s 40-year history, Earth Fare, a specialty organic and natural foods grocery store, opened its 40th location Dec. 9. The new store, located at 3140 Ronald Reagan Boulevard in The Collection at Forsyth in Cumming, Georgia, expands the company’s Atlanta footprint to three stores.
Highlighted by CNNMoney as the 6th Fastest Growing County in America, Cumming is a natural fit for the new, full-service, 23,000-s.f. store, says the company.
Earth Fare offers an assortment of organic and local produce, more than 175 natural and organic bulk foods, humanely raised fresh meat, sustainable and traceable seafood and healthy to-go options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The location will offer Earth Fare’s first Heirloom Organic Café and Juice Bar, which includes a completely organic coffee bar.
“For 40 years, Earth Fare has earned its customers’ trust and loyalty by making it easy for them to make the healthiest food choices every day,” said Earth Fare President and CEO Frank Scorpiniti.
According to the company, hundreds of customers lined up hours before the 7 a.m. opening to be among the first shoppers in the store. The first 100 customers in line received a mystery gift card valued at up to $500. Opening week specials and giveaways will continue over the holidays.
Founded in 1975 in Asheville, North Carolina, Earth Fare operates stores across the Southeast, mid-Atlantic and Midwest.
