Whole Foods Market in Delray Beach, Fla., opened its doors on Jan. 29. Located at 680 Linton Blvd., the 41,000-square-foot store features hundreds of items from local producers, a variety of prepared foods and grab-and-go meals, natural and organic items and a full-service coffee and juice bar, the retailer said.
“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Palm Beach County, with the addition of our new Delray Beach store,” Jan Vandervort, store team leader, said in a statement. “We look forward to providing the community with fresh, innovative products that all meet Whole Foods Market’s unparalleled quality standards, including hundreds from local suppliers.”
The store, originally envisioned as an outlet of the since-abandoned Whole Foods 365 concept, is within a mile of Publix, The Fresh Market and Trader Joe's locations.
