Whole Foods opens new flagship
Whole Foods Market has chosen Atlanta for its 500th store opening.
Located at 22 14th Street NW in Related Group’s Icon Midtown residential development, the new 70,000 square-foot, multi-level flagship store will be a community gathering destination featuring four fast-casual eateries and more than 1,500 local items from 250 suppliers, many new to Whole Foods Market.
“Whole Foods Market Midtown will be a true gathering space for the community,” said Bobby Turner, president of the south region at Whole Foods Market. “We worked hard to create a place that offers our neighbors a destination to get together, enjoy great food and connect with members of the local community through a variety of culinary, wellness and cultural events. We’re proud that our new South Region flagship has the honor of opening as Whole Foods Market’s 500th store, marking an incredible milestone for the company.”
To celebrate joining the community, 5 percent of the store’s net sales on April 18 will be donated to Food Well Alliance, supporting local urban agriculture in Atlanta.
