Ground breaks for only Whole Foods Market in Detroit

The ground for the new Whole Foods Market in Detroit has officially been christened.

On Monday, the site for the market located at John R and Mack in Midtown held a groundbreaking celebration at its new location. Guests enjoyed local food and entertainment. This is the first Whole Foods Market in the Detroit Community. The other locations are in West Bloomfield, Troy, Rochester Hills and two stores in Ann Arbor.
The new store is estimated to be 20,650 square feet and will hire 60-80 new team members.
Whole Foods Market is the largest natural and organic grocery store in the world.  It has over 60,000 employees and has proven that a company can do well if the doing comes from the heart. With the new Midtown location, the market will be able to expand its local partnerships and offer a range of local products including Avalon Baked goods, McClure’s pickles, Garden fresh chips and salsa and a selection of seasonal Michigan produce. More information about the store and its mission can be found here.
The new store is slated to open Spring 2013.
