Whole Foods Market coming to Stirling Properties’ Premier Centre in Mandeville, La.

First Whole Foods Market location for Northshore New Orleans

Stirling Properties announces the addition of Whole Foods Market® to the tenant lineup at Premier Centre, a 273,000-square-foot shopping center near the intersection of U.S. Highway 190 and North Causeway Boulevard in Mandeville, Louisiana.

The approximately 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market store, the first for Northshore of New Orleans, will offer customers a large selection of natural and organic products with features tailored to the local Louisiana community.

“We are excited to bring such an in-demand, high-caliber retailer to the Northshore community,” said Donna Taylor, Stirling Properties’ Senior Vice President of Asset Management and New Business. “Whole Foods Market is a welcome addition to Premier Centre and will be a regional draw for the city of Mandeville.”

“On behalf of the city of Mandeville, we welcome the announcement that Whole Foods will be locating in Mandeville,” Mandeville Mayor Donald Villere said. “As mayor I have had requests for years to get Whole Foods to become a part of the city. I believe their opening will be the start of a long lasting relationship with the citizens of Mandeville.”

Whole Foods Market, projected to open in the first quarter of 2016, will be located in a portion of the space currently occupied by Albertsons. Twenty thousand square feet of adjacent space is available for lease. Premier Centre is situated in the heart of the Mandeville community on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain in St. Tammany Parish. This center has maintained 100 percent occupancy since opening in 1998, and sales per square foot are well above average for the national tenants in the center. Whole Foods Market joins Stein Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, T.J.Maxx, Barnes & Noble, Old Navy and many other national retailers.
