After being closed for over two years, Oldsmar’s wellness-forward grocery store Earth Fare will reopen in of its former location at 3136 Tampa Rd.

The grand re-opening ribbon cutting ceremony takes place on Wednesday, April 6 at 7:45 a.m., and after that, Earth Fare’s doors are officially open to the public.

After this week, Oldsmar’s Earth Fare will be open every day from 8 a.m.-9 p.m.

In early 2020, the North Carolina-based company announced the imminent closure of all of its stores across the U.S.—including its Oldsmar location alongside the only other Tampa Bay store in Pinellas County’s Seminole.
According to the Tampa Bay Business Journal, an investor group led by Hulsing Enterprises bought Earth Fare shortly after it announced its closures due to bankruptcy. The company has been slowly re-opening stores across the southeast and midwest since March 2020.

Oldsmar’s location is joined by the only other Tampa Bay Earth Fare in Seminole—with other Florida-based stores in Ocala, Lady Lake and Orlando. Its Seminole store reopened in January 2021.

And if you’re not familiar with the organic supermarket’s mission, its website states that Earth Fare is the “only grocery market to develop a Food Philosophy that bans all artificial ingredients, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, and added hormones and antibiotics.”

Earth Fare also has a deli and grab-and-go section of prepared foods alongside its natural and wellness-forward goods and groceries.
And in addition to the mystery gift cards that Earth Fare’s first 200 customers will receive at this week’s grand opening, the company will also present a $1,000 donation to 360 Eats—a Tampa Bay-based nonprofit dedicated to creating sustainable food systems. There will also be an Earth Fare Healthy Tent pop-up dishing out tons of samples and goodies in front of the newly-opened grocery store.
