The opening of Whole Foods Market’s new Castle Rock, Colo., store, originally slated for April 2, was pushed back due to COVID-19. But on June 29, the Austin, Texas-based grocer opened the doors to its highly anticipated 43,000-square-foot store at 6384 Promenade Parkway, and by all accounts, it was worth the wait.
From a focus on local products to fresh produce, craft beers, beauty items and a full-service coffee and juice bar, this suburban Denver store has it all. And while traditionally high-service areas such as the deli and bakery have had to adapt due to COVID-19, the Castle Rock Whole Foods’ freshly wrapped items are merchandised for maximum appeal.
Transparency, Traceability and Standards
The full-service butcher offers grass-fed and dry-aged beef, made-in-house sausages and ribeyes, New York strip steaks, lamb and pork chops from local suppliers. Meanwhile the seafood counter, which features fresh and frozen seafood, stocks offerings that are either sustainable wild-caught or Responsibly Farmed, including seafood smoked in-house.
