The Sweetbay Magnolia (Magnolia virginiana) is the literal inspiration for our name. With its fragrant white blossoms and brilliant red berries, the beautiful Sweetbay vividly reflects our passion for delicious food. Common to West Central Florida, the Sweetbay grows tall and strong, echoing the strength of our stores and associates.
Sweetbay Supermarket opened its first store in Largo, Florida in November 2004. Today there are 102 stores as far South as Naples and North to Gainesville. Each store combines passion, knowledge and excitement and offers outstanding quality, value and variety for a one-of-a-kind shopping experience.
You'll find a cornucopia of enticing sights, scents and textures as well as an abundance of fresh-picked produce, top-quality meats, diverse ethnic offerings, oven-fresh baked goods, an expansive deli selection and well-stocked grocery aisles.
