Tam Valley Residents are very excited because they are getting a new grocery store!
Good Earth Announces Second Store:
"After 45 years in business with a single location, we embark on a new chapter in Good Earth's history. We are pleased to announce our plans for a second store at the corner of Shoreline Hwy and Flamingo Rd in the Tam Junction neighborhood of Mill Valley. Good Earth has signed a long-term lease for a new 22,000 square foot store - the same size as our current Fairfax store - that will meet the needs of the currently under served Southern Marin community (Tamalpais Valley residents have been without a local grocery store since December of 2010). We plan to open in the fall of 2015.
Good Earth will complete a total renovation and aesthetic transformation of Shoreline Shopping Center's grocery building to house our selection of organic foods. Our food standards won't change, we are steadfast to never accept the status quo - we will always push the envelope and encourage food growers to produce food of higher quality. In fact with a second store, Good Earth - together with you our customers, staff, and suppliers - will make an even bigger difference in avoiding GMOs, reducing the use of pesticides, and promoting sustainable practices by supporting organic farmers and local producers."
"We have received many requests for a store in Southern Marin from folks seeking a more organic choice. Although organic food is still a bit pricier we know that enough people recognize the superior quality and safety of organic to support a store with Good Earth's commitment. We look forward to serving a new community with healthful food," says Mark Squire, one of two partners at Good Earth. "Along with meeting the additional market demand for what we already do, it also brings me great pleasure knowing our staff will continue to grow too - this opportunity represents real leadership growth opportunities for many current Good Earthlings," adds Partner Al Baylacq.
We would love to hear from you about our new store plans, as well as how we are doing here in Fairfax. We have created an online survey to capture your thoughts, comments and concerns. We would greatly appreciate your input! Your completed survey will be entered for a chance to win a $500 Good Earth gift card.
