Nine Mile Road Grand Opening Date Announced

Ever'man Announces Grand Opening of Second Cooperative Grocery Store

PENSACOLA, FL (November 26, 2019) - Ever’man Cooperative Grocery & Cafe, Pensacola’s leading natural and organic grocer, announces the grand opening of its second location at 1000 E. Nine Mile Road on December 11.

Boasting natural, organic and locally sourced food and self-care products, Ever’man has served as Pensacola’s hub of all things health and wellness for nearly 50 years. The downtown location also features a cafe with a large selection of ready-to-eat options and an educational center, which holds classes, seminars and workshops centered on fitness, nutrition and environmental impacts.

“Throughout the years, Ever’man has been known as the local experts on organic, natural and minimally processed food,” said William Rolfs, general manager. “We work hard to take the guesswork out of buying groceries. One of our core beliefs is to help educate our community about food and environmental issues affecting our lives. We do this through many ways including classes, support groups, cooking demonstrations, bi-monthly newsletters, store signage, attending community events and our knowledgeable employees.”

By supporting the rapidly expanding growth on the north side of Pensacola, Ever’man is fulfilling its mission to create a more healthy, vibrant community. The uptown store will offer all current services from the downtown store, plus new features like a pizza bar, burrito/taco bar, hand dipped gelato, sushi and kombucha on tap. There will be an expanded coffee presence as well as a beer and wine bar. Plans also call for a second Educational Center in the near future.

“The north side of town is absolutely booming, and so many people have asked us when we’re going to have a second store,” said Dave Deblander, Ever’man Board of Directors President. “We’re calling this store a destination that just happens to sell groceries.”

The grand opening of the uptown store will commence with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:00 a.m., followed by food demos and samples, Grand Opening specials, store tours, kombucha tastings and afternoon craft beer and wine tastings. The first 100 customers will receive a special gift as well as entry in free raffles and giveaways. Grand Opening festivities will continue from Wednesday morning through Saturday evening.
