An Asian market will be moving into the former Winn-Dixie in the Coytown Shopping Center on the corner of Colonial Drive and Bumby Avenue [GMap].

The grocer closed in November of 2014 and has been vacant since.

The owner of the Coytown Shopping Center, Homer B. Jamerson, confirmed that a “Hong Kong grocery store” would be moving into the space in the new year and projected an opening in three months.

Jamerson’s office would not confirm if that was the name or the type of new store moving in. We will update the story as details become more available.

  1. Oh great…more of the same! My guess is it will open and close shortly. I can imagine the area can support all those businesses

  2. I’m sure the new proprietors don’t care about my opinion. To bad there will likely be no reason for me to go there.

  3. Besides, there are no other Latino markets in this area but there’s at least four Asian markets nearby.

  4. Gary, Medina’s was Cuban-American, but they had a terrific (and reasonably priced) selection of Spanish cured meats: chorizo, jamon serrano, lomo.

  5. That probably would never happen though since I don’t doubt there’s a non-compete clause in Lam(e)’s Garden lease agreement =(

  6. Decent parking will be a plus. The only other two large Asian Markets on that side of E Colonial aren’t exactly the best when it comes to fresh foods unfortunately. I have seen moldy fruits and veggies, and other items with expired dates on them. They also don’t smell very good and that was a comment made by my Asian friend who doesn’t care much for those two markets either. The only one I know of that is well kept is the East Side market on the other end of E Colonial going towards Alafaya.

  7. another Latino market, erghhhh, No… Spanish, Yes as long as it weren’t exorbitantly priced like in East End Market

  8. I live in Little Vietnam and love it – don’t get me wrong. Just hard to believe the area needs another Asian market.

  9. it it were to house a multi vendor food court/MultiCultural Market like the ones they have in Atlanta/Decatur, it’d be great. But to have just another run of the mill Asian market would be such a disappointment.

  10. Another one!? U0001f44e Such a waste of a great location that could Really use some other kind of business. Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, World Market, just to name a few but I’d take anything other than another Asian market. There’s already 10+ within that block. Bah Humbug! Ronald Morelli

  11. I am looking forward to this, although I wish it was a Patel Brothers (one closer than Florida Mall).

  12. I’m ok with this. We have tons of “American” grocers in town. Why not encourage the diversity?

  13. Damn. I was hoping it was going to be a Lucky’s Market. I read that the company is planning to take over some of the old Winn Dixies in Central Florida.

  14. Is that the one at Colonial and Bumby?
    Aren’t there enough Asian markets in that neighborhood already? How about a Latino market? Something to fill the gaping hole left when Medina’s closed.

  15. Was hoping for something more exciting… It will be at least the third Asian market in the area. We have good ones already.

  16. This will be a lifesaver in case any of the 75 other Asian markets nearby don’t have what your looking for.

  17. Thanks for the update, but, bummer! I was hoping for something more exciting. I guess we should be happy that the place will not be empty…U0001f615
