THE HINMAN COMPANY ANNOUNCES PLANNED REOPENING OF EARTH FARE AT THE WESTNEDGE@KILGORE SHOPPING CENTER IN PORTAGE, MICHIGAN
PORTAGE, MI – The Hinman Company is pleased to announce that Asheville, NC based Earth Fare will be reopening this fall within the Westnedge@Kilgore Shopping Center in Portage, MI.
Founded in 1975, Earth Fare is a health and wellness market with over 12 locations in five states. The revitalized Earth Fare is reopening under new leadership while refocusing on the mission and standards its founders intended. Earth Fare continues to distinguish itself as one of the most authentic healthy food supermarkets in the US. “Having the new ownership team at Earth Fare make it a top priority to reopen the Portage store as part of the initial restart is indicative of how strongly the healthy supermarket has been embraced by the community”, said Roger Hinman, CEO of The Hinman Company.
Earth Fare’s mission, as it will be printed on the front doors, is to improve lives by “making healthy food available to everyone”. They do so by honoring the Earth Fare branded food philosophy, a responsibility to sell only the best, most natural products. Earth Fare keeps the “good stuff” like organic fruits, vegetables, and responsibly sourced meat and seafood and leaves out the “bad stuff” like meat raised with antibiotics and artificial hormones as well as artificial flavors, dyes, colors and more. Earth Fare even has a “Food Boot List” of ingredients that you’ll never find in their stores.
“We are excited to return to Portage. You will find many of the same trusted brands and house made specialties back in our store, and we are adding some new ones. We will be keeping our Food Philosophy and product standards at the forefront, we are expanding our craftsmanship and increasing our selection of Organic produce and local offerings,” said David Isinghood, COO of Earth Fare.
Developed in 2015 by Roger Hinman, Westnedge@Kilgore is a 46,000+ SF shopping center located on South Westnedge Avenue in Portage and anchored by Earth Fare and HomeGoods. 3,200 SF of prime retail space adjacent to Earth Fare is currently available.
