The Bedford Avenue store has been in the works for years now
It’s been talked about for years now, and come July 26th this year, Williamsburg’s Whole Foods will finally open its glassy doors to the public, Gothamist reports. The pricey grocer’s space at 238 Bedford Avenue is spread out over two levels, and spans 51,000 square feet. The lower level will house the produce and deli section, while the ground floor level will have the cafe, coffee bar, and prepared foods.
Gothamist notes that the store isn’t quite as big as the one on Bowery, but it’s certainly bigger than the ones in Chelsea and Midtown. The building that it’s located in is also home to WeWork and Levi’s, and was recently the subject of a lawsuit, from the owners of the nearby Foodtown of Williamsburg.
But for now, Whole Foods is marching ahead to its opening unfazed.
