Whole Foods is opening its new smaller “365” concept store in the former JC Penny location at Bellevue Square. The new market will be bringing fresh, healthy food to a broader audience with a streamlined, quality-meets-value shopping experience. The market will feature a curated mix of products that adhere to the company’s industry-leading quality standards in an environment that’s fun and convenient for shoppers. In other words, you can expect to pay less than the larger Whole Foods locations.
The first store locations are slated to open in the second half of 2016. The company plans to double the number of 365 by Whole Foods Market store openings in 2017.
