The Fresh Market will open its first store in Metairie next year, reports the New Orleans Advocate.
The grocery store will take over a 19,265 square foot space that formerly housed a Scandinavia furniture outlet across from Dorignac’s Food Center on Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Metairie.
The shopping center that will house Fresh Market already includes an Office Depot, a Big Lots, a Rite Aid and a Gordon’s home accessories store. The new Fresh Market will take the empty space on the back corner of the Wilshire Plaza Shopping Center.
The new location will face plenty of competition, as Dorignac’s, Winn-Dixie, Whole Foods, and Rouses all also have stores along Veterans.
The Greensboro, North Carolina-based high-end grocer, has recently expanded to Louisiana, opening locations in Mandeville and in the former Borders bookstore on St. Charles Avenue (pictured above).
The Fresh Market was founded in 1982 and has more than 100 locations in 20 states. It also has stores in Baton Rouge and Lafayette, according to the chain’s website.
Wilshire Plaza Shopping Center was represented by Bill Haynes of Atlanta-based Victory Real Estate Investments on the deal.
