Just read that Rowe's is opening up some new stores in Jax.

What's the deal with a local independent grocer doing so well when we're seeing the Luckys, Earth Fares, and Native Suns going down?

I've never been in a Rowe's, but what's their niche?

Lower income, versus the more upscale nature of the above?

Rowes is more in line with a Harvey's or Winn-Dixie. Lucky's, Earth Fare and Native Sun are all more niche based.

IMO Rowe's stands apart from the rest of Jax's supermarkets. Rowe's has a wide variety of international foods.
