Vom Fass headed to Shops at Wiregrass mall in Wesley Chapel

WESLEY CHAPEL — Vom Fass, a German retailer selling gourmet food, spices, vinegar, oils and liquor, is scheduled to open in the Shops at Wiregrass mall.

The store is listed as "coming soon" on both the mall's online store directory and the Vom Fass company website.

Mall developers Goodforest LLC and Vom Fass are seeking county permission to sell alcohol in the package store and also for on-site consumption in the 2,117-square-foot location within the mall on Paseo Drive, northeast of State Road 56 and Bruce B. Down Boulevard.

The county Planning Commission, an advisory panel to county commissioners, was scheduled to hear the request for a conditional use permit Wednesday. The Pasco County Commission, which has final approval, will consider the application March 29.

Vom Fass translates to "from the cask," referring to the wooden barrels used to age wine, ale and liquor. Vom Fass stores are filled with cask pyramids, glass balloons and vinegar and oil crocks housing the specialties.

The Wiregrass store will be the seventh Vom Fass location in Florida, according to the vomfassusa.com website. Other store sites include Beach Drive in St. Petersburg and in Sarasota.
