Urban Air trampoline park is expected to open this fall and will take over a 42,000 sqft space inside the Emerald Coast Centre.
In an earlier version of the article, The Destin Log stated that Rouses Markets had planned on taking over the additional 49,993 sqft space that is available at the center. However, an updated version stated that “making Destin the home of the chain’s first Florida store is not a done deal.”
In a statement to the paper the CEO of the Rouses said,
“While we love the Destin community, Rouses does not have a commitment in place to open a store in the area. We look forward to one day expanding into the Florida panhandle.”
I’m personally not a fan of trampoline parks, unless it’s toddler hour…(Toddler hour I can handle). But I think it will be a great addition to Destin and help fill a space that desperately needs some love.
Although I’m not sure if we “need” another grocery store in Destin, my wife would certainly welcome the change. (Between you and me, we went to Austin, TX for Thanksgiving and she basically went on a grocery store tour!)
Over to you! What do you think of the trampoline park coming? Do you think Destin needs another grocery store?
