Grand Opening of Whole Foods Market in Wellesley, MA
Posted on August 21st, 2011
Tomorrow – Monday, August 22 at 8 a.m. – is the grand opening of the new and expansive Whole Foods Market in Wellesley. Located at 442 Washington Street, this is the former site of Star Market, Brooks Pharmacy and Tian Fu Restaurant. And instead of having a ribbon-cutting ceremony as part of the festivities, the natural and organic supermarket chain will be having a “bread breaking ceremony,” which couldn’t be more perfect. What better way to kick off the opening than with bread breaking and eating, especially to those of us who once knew the market as Bread & Circus.
But I digress…. The store will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, except holidays. And what will happen to the other Whole Foods location, 278 Washington Street in Wellesley Hills? It officially closed today at 4 p.m. and will be relocating to the new store. Click here for more details on the store opening and all of the store specifics. I can’t wait to check it out, but honestly, I might wait a day or two as I was there today – prior to the store having opened its doors – and the parking lot was full, and there were cars and people milling about everywhere. It could be a zoo there tomorrow, but I’m quite exited to venture there soon….
How about you? Is this new Whole Foods a good thing in your book? I can’t wait to hear…..
