Whole Foods and PetSmart To Anchor Renovated Pablo Plaza in JAX Beach
Owner Equity One announced that Pablo Plaza shopping center in JAX Beach will get an $18M makeover and add JAX’ second Whole Foods, along with a new PetSmart to join the existing Marshalls and Home Goods. Office Depot is in space which they sublease from Publix which exited in 1995. Sources suggest Office Depot would likely give up (or take a buyout) early before ite expires in late 2018. (The office supply stores continue to go through significant consolidation with Office Depot/OfficeMax now merged and that new conglomerate under agreement to buy the Staples chain, subject to a pending/expected FTC government approval. There is an Staples just to the south of the Pablo Plaza location in another Equity One center, and an OfficeMax on Beach Blvd at Hodges).
