Yay! Been going through TJ withdrawals since moving here from AZ last month. No opening date yet but do know it will be on Tamiami (US 41) near Immokalee Rd, within walking distance of hubby's office. Read an article on a local website a couple of weeks ago and it is now posted on the TJ website.

Congrats

Edit: their three grain organic tempeh is a huge staple for me. I eat it raw all the time when I'm lazy.

I am so jealous!! The only time I can hit TJ is when I'm visiting my sons (one in AZ one in NC) I can only hope they open one in Ft Lauderdale.

Do not lead me to temptation...I can find it myself.

Is it open yet? I live in Orlando and the closest one to here now is Atlanta! What else is there to do in Naples? Going to make a day trip, any good vegetarian places to eat there?

Omg I want to go!!!

And a great stop on the way is Venice Beach, also known as Sharktooth Beach. There are fossilized shark teeth littering the place, and if you dive, it's a great spot! http://beaches.uptake.com/blog/shark...h-florida.html

It is not open yet (I drive by at least once a week to check on progress during my lunch break), will let you know. Looks like it is getting close. I can't wait!

As for restaurants in Naples there is The Loving Hut which is 100% vegan (love this place, there were 2 of them in AZ), Noodle Saigon which is a family owned Vietnamese restaurant-not veg*n but they do have veggie dishes and some other assorted places that you can get veggie food.

If you want to make it a day trip what kind of things do you like to do?

Be prepared for it to be a ZOO when it opens. I couldn't get near the place for over a week and only then because I went at 8am on a Sunday. The snowbirds were in attack mode. I like having it close by but they don't have everything the TJ's had when I lived in Arizona.
