Some rumors just don't go away. Some don't have to.
A new shopping center in Eustis, across from Target on the north side of US 441, is in the final approval stages with the city. If all goes as expected, the land just west of Chili's will be home to an Aldi, Panera Bread, Vitamin Shoppe and more. A Tijuana Flats is also planned in the retail center providing more casual dining options in close proximity to the Epic Theatre to be constructed in bordering Mount Dora.
The project is currently awaiting a submittal from the developer, but the community is looking forward to it.
"We're excited about more shopping and dining options in the area", said Tom Carrino, Economic Development Director with the City of Eustis. "They are quality tenants."
Carrino said the city has been meeting on this project for months.
