Whole Foods will move its supermarket at 11701 South Dixie Highway in Pinecrest to a larger location with more employees one mile north.

The supermarket chain will close its 32,300-square-foot store in Pinecrest at the end of the year and open a 46,700-square-foot store now under construction in the Dadeland area at 7930 Southwest 104 Street.

The 180 employees at the smaller Whole Foods store will be able to transfer to the larger store, which will have 250 employees.

The new Whole Foods store is under construction at a site formerly occupied by a Winn-Dixie supermarket. The site is adjacent to a Target department store spanning 173,000 square feet,

By the time Whole Foods opens the new store, it may be part of online retailing giant Amazon.com, which on Friday announced a deal to acquire the supermarket chain for $13.7 billion.

The Amazon takeover, which is pending approval by shareholders and regulators, could be completed in the second half of 2017. [Miami Herald]Mike Seemuth
