America's healthiest grocer opening right around the corner
If you drove down McKinney Avenue at Routh on Monday, you may have noticed suddenly there were giant white letters on the side of a 10-story construction site.
Don't let the big cranes fool you. The Uptown Whole Foods Market will be opening in just over two weeks. Over 44,000 square feet of all-natural and organic goodness will be ready for shopping beginning at 8am on Wednesday, August 12.
A bread-breaking ceremony will be held at 7:30am (literally, they break a six-foot loaf of challah with the neighbors) and then the doors open to a store designed to satisfy and delight.
You may still see cranes and construction around the property, as The Gables at McKinney Ave finishes its eight-story apartments above the store, and the townhouses behind.
But you can mark your calendar for August 12 as Shopping Day One at your neighborhood Whole Foods Market.
