A new Whole Foods is currently under construction in Pompano Beach. Located next to the Muvico Theater (soon to be Carmike Cinemas) in the spot that was once Kmart, they are shooting for a Fall/Winter 2014 opening date. Reports show that the store is planned to be 40,000 square feet, which is larger than it’s Ft. Lauderdale location and smaller than Boca Raton. It looks like they knocked down the old Kmart and are building from the ground up.
Personally, we really like the Boca location…it’s huge, planned out very well and the pre-prepared food areas are massive. This location should do quite well as the Coral Springs location is one of the smaller footprints and can get very busy, and Ft. Lauderdale is a bit of a drive.
We will keep you updated as the opening approaches. Whole Foods will be located on US1, just north of Copans Rd.
