The new 56,000 square foot facility will be feature a natural and organic product as well as a soup and salad bar.
In addition, there will be an 11,000 square foot liquor store on the property.

The developers also updated and remodeled the façade of Naples Plaza.
The total cost of the project was estimated at 8.1 million dollars.
