A new Whole Foods Market is coming to Springfield, Virginia, in October, the grocery chain announced Wednesday.
The 49,499-square-foot supermarket, which will be located at 6426 Springfield Plaza, is a relocation of the existing Springfield Whole Foods at 8402 Old Keene Mill Road, the Amazon-owned grocer said.
The new store, which is set to open at 8 a.m. on Oct. 4, is nearly double the size of the former location and will offer more amenities, including a full-service meat department, more prepared foods bars and a larger assortment of products. The store will feature more than 600 locally sourced products, the company noted.
The new store’s produce section will include conventional and certified options and will feature fruits and vegetables that fall under Whole Foods’ Sourced for Good program, which is a collaboration between the grocer and various farmers, suppliers and international third-party certifiers to help support workers and the environment where the produce is grown. Local offerings include apples from Hess Brother’s Fruit Company, microgreens from Aerofarms and Asian pears from Mountain View Orchards.
The store will also feature:
Grass-fed beef from Grayson Natural Farms.
Whole Foods also announced it is donating a refrigerated van to Northern Virginia Food Rescue, courtesy of the grocer's Nourishing Our Neighborhoods program.
The first 300 shoppers on the opening day will receive a free tote bag and a Secret Saver coupon with offers up to $100 off their purchases.
