Earth Fare (Website), the Asheville-based organic/natural grocer, called it quits on its Orlando location on the bottom floor of the Novel Lucerne back in February 2020.

But in September 2020, the grocer announced that it would be returning to Crescent Communities’ NOVEL Lucerne development at 9 W. Gore Street [GMap] by the end of 2020. As many of you have noticed (we’ve gotten so many emails) that hasn’t happened yet.

Earth Fare closed all of its 50 locations earlier in the year after declaring bankruptcy but was reanimated following an investment from Hulsing Enterprises CEO, Dennis Hulsing and former Earth Fare president, Mike Cianciarulo. The partnership will also bring back 20 former locations throughout the East Coast.

A recent press release from Crescent Communities has shared that Earth Fare plans to return to its former 24,000 SF home at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 24. The first 100 guests in line will receive an Earth Fare gift bag filled with product as part of the grand opening celebrations.
