You've heard the rumors swirling for some time now, but it is now confirmed that Whole Foods will be coming to Gainesville. It will not be a full scale store, but rather one of their new small-scale concepts called 365 by Whole Foods. The company is opening the first 3 locations this summer on the west coast, and plan on opening in the new Butler Town Center later next year as part of 10 planned locations. It will be the first one in all of Florida.
Butler Town Center will be built on what is currently Walmart and the old Lowe's on Archer Road, and will be an outdoor shopping mall similar to St. John's Town Center in Jacksonville.
