Del Mar Highlands Town Center recently announced that nékter, which serves fresh made juices, smoothies and açai bowls, is opening at the Center this fall. (

Note: The official name is “nékter” with a lower case “n”

.) Nékter is the second new tenant announced for the shopping center this month. MA+hnasium: The Math Learning Center, a personalized math tutorial learning center, recently opened next to FedEx Office.

“Del Mar Highlands Town Center is pleased to welcome these exciting new tenants to our award-winning lineup of dining, shopping and entertainment,” said Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president, operations and development of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. “From our Re-Imagining through our next phase of renovations, we continue to serve the Carmel Valley community by offering some of the best shopping and dining San Diego has to offer, and we are proud to showcase companies focused on improving our minds and bodies.”

Steve and Alexis Schulze, husband/wife team and owners of nékter, opened their first nékter location in Costa Mesa, Calif., in 2010 as an outlet to share and promote their passion for healthy living. Since then, nékter has expanded to new neighborhoods in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego and Northern California, as well as Texas, Arizona and Colorado.

“We can’t wait to share our passion for healthy living and our fresh juice with residents and visitors in Carmel Valley,” said owner Alexis Schulze. “We are honored to join Del Mar Highlands Town Center and the numerous top notch restaurants and retailers in this community.”

In addition to the fresh-made juices and smoothies, nékter offers a wide assortment of nutritious snacks, açai bowls, cold-pressed bottled juices and the popular nékter Cleanse Program with 15 pounds of cold-pressed fruits and vegetables packed into a day’s cleanse.

The juice bar’s new location at Del Mar Highlands Town Center will open in November 2014 next to Taverna Blu in what was formerly Anthony’s Shoe Repair. Anthony’s Shoe Repair relocated earlier this month to the space above Snooze across from Champagne French Bakery Café.

With more than a handful of locations currently in San Diego, the addition of MA+hnasium at Del Mar Highlands Town Center expands the successful international program further in the region. MA+hnasium aims to significantly increase children’s math skills, understanding of math concepts and overall school performance, while building confidence and forging a positive attitude toward the subject.

As the next phase of renovations of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center and the highly anticipated openings of nékter Juice Bar and MA+hnasium move forward, there will be several relocations of existing tenants, including the relocation of Unleashed by Petco in early December to the space between Bath & Body Works and Geppetto’s Toys, Pearl Izumi to the space next to Sushi Ya and Village Mill Bread to the space in between Which Wich and GameStop.

In 2011, the Del Mar Highlands Town Center celebrated 20 years in Carmel Valley by undergoing a Re-Imagining, adding award-winning restaurants and San Diego’s first luxury boutique movie theatre and transforming through a modern architectural makeover. This next phase of the renovation will include the addition of a parking structure, theater expansion, and the opening of even more dining and shopping options.
