Whole Foods Grand Opening
The newest player in the battle for your grocery dollars opens its doors. At 9:00 Tuesday morning, Whole Foods Markets opens for business on Tunnel Road in the new Asheville Market shopping center.
Jennifer Wozniak with Whole Foods Market says it promises a great shopping experience for natural and organic foods. She says they put a major emphasis on local items.
Whole Foods Markets already operates the Greenlife Grocery on Merrimon Avenue. Wozniak says they knew this area could support a second location because of the community's desire for local organic foods.
Whole Foods is the latest grocery store to make a play for part of the grocery spending pie. In the past few years we have seen several grocery chains open locations in Asheville and its nearby communities. The next on the list is Publix, set for Hendersonville Road.
Groceries won't be the only purchasing options at the Asheville Market shopping center. DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, Guitar Center and several other retailers are set to open on Tunnel Road soon.
