With Fresh Markets, Trader Joes, Central Market, and Whole Foods adding Houston locations, it creates a large impact on Houston retail space. A few tidbits about the infographic on Houston specialty grocers -
A specialty grocer on the low end does over 3X the sales per square foot of an average grocer.
The specialty grocers in Houston are all concentrated in a small area, generally central, west Houston.
Houston added 7 specialty grocery stores in Q3 and Q4 of 2012.
Central Market does almost 7 times the annual sales of an average grocer in Houston retail space.
