Mercato moving right along: First retailer Whole Foods set to open Friday
The first retail store and the staple of The Mercato, a new mixed-use development (residential and commercial property) on the corner of US 41 and Vanderbilt Beach Road will be open for business starting this Friday.
The much anticipated all-natural and organic grocery store will offer a juice bar, a 4,000 sqft. produce department, a 24-foot seafood counter, in-house fish & meat smokers, a wine & cheese tasting bar, a brick over for pizzas, a 50-well salad bar, a cooking school and a 136 seat café. Not to mention, 175 new jobs for local employees.
Whole Foods will be just one of many national retailers and restaurants to take up residence in Mercato. Also joining the line-up are retailers such as Sur La Table, Coldwater Creek, Z Gallerie, Books-a-Million, Femme Fatale, GiGi’s Children’s Boutique, JoS. A. Bank Clothiers, Solstice Sunglass Boutique, Swim ‘n Sport, a premium movie theater, Cines Unidos, which will open an eleven screen, 1,300 seat theater, and the restaurants, Capital Grille, McCormick & Schmick’s, AZN, Piola, The Pub, Stage Deli, and Blue Martini. With all of these stores available within walking distance, it’s easy to see why Mercato is such a hit with the Naples real estate market.
Pre-construction residential units with views of “The Strada” (Mercato’s main street) as well as units with a more private view are still available.
