A new grocery store could be making its way to Cortez Road if Manatee County approves plans filed by Benderson Development Co.

University Park-based Benderson Development has filed plans to demolish 25,000 square feet of the shopping center to make room for a 44,670-square-foot grocery store. No announcement has been made for which grocery store will be coming to the Home Depot-anchored shopping center, 2108 Cortez Road W.

The center is largely vacant and includes Aaron’s, Grand China Buffet and Lakeside Barber Shop. Benderson acquired the center in 2012 from Kimco Realty Corp. for $1.7 million, according to property records.

Many of those units have been vacant for years, according to business owners in the shopping center.
