Whole Foods Market Opens Prestige Midtown Atlanta Store


The 500th Whole Foods Market store has opened in Midtown, Atlanta. The facility extends over 70,000 square feet and comprises four levels. In addition to a typical Whole Foods Market, the project when completed will include four restaurants to attract patrons to “a place where friends and neighbors can gather”. These locations will include the Canopy Court, the 14th Street Bar, Capital Experience and Farm Burger.

Bobby Turner, president of the South Region for Whole Foods noted that the flagship store will host regular culinary, health and wellness and social community events and will provide an opportunity for local artists to display their work.

Since the acquisition of Whole Foods Market by Amazon Inc., the company no longer posts financial reports and accordingly there is no way to measure same-store sales or profitability associated with investment in combinations of grocery stores and casual dining.
