Real Estate

Whole Foods Market has grown from a single, small natural and organic foods store to a chain recognized nationally and internationally for high standards and amazing quality. Some of our stores are largely unchanged from the early days of our company and are neighborhood fixtures. Our newer stores are larger and offer a greater selection of products, but we continue to respect the neighborhood to which we are moving and strive to become an integral part of the community. We like to think that it isn't just the food that makes shopping at Whole Foods a great experience, but the store itself is a part of the experience. The architecture, the location, and layout of the products available to our shoppers — every single store is unique.
