PLANS, DESCRIPTION: A Dublin, Ireland-based financial firm acquired several GFS Marketplace stores, including buildings in Brandon and Fort Myers.

The firm, Gaelic Financial Services LLC, purchased a 21,307-square-foot GFS building in Fort Myers and a 14,799-square-foot GFS building in Brandon for $6.07 million. Gordon Food Service, which sold the buildings, will lease the properties back under a long-term agreement, according to GFS spokesman Mark Dempsey.

“The transaction was part of a standard accounting transaction and does not change our plans for the market,” Dempsey writes in an email to the Business Review. “GFS Marketplace remains committed to providing the Gulf Coast community with quality service and products for the long-term. We are actively searching for additional opportunities throughout the state of Florida.”

Gordon Food Service currently has GFS Marketplace stores in Bradenton, Brandon, Carrollwood, Clearwater, Fort Myers and St Petersburg. It also announced plans to build a store in Lakeland.
