Can I just tell you how unbelievably excited I am about Whole Foods coming to Virginia Beach?! I have always heard amazing things about Whole Foods and actually had the opportunity to visit one location in Washington and fell in love. Now that we have one opening locally next week…I’m beside myself!
Here is an excert from a press release from Whole Foods that I thought would build some excitement for you too!
Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM), the world’s leading natural and organic foods supermarket and America’s first national certified organic grocer, will open the doors to its newest store in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Wednesday, October 24 at 10 a.m. with a fun-filled grand opening day and week. Located at1800 Laskin Road, the new store launches into fall with superb seasonal offerings and unrivaled amenities. Blending together all the advantageous of a farmer’s market, grocer, old-fashioned butcher, fishmonger, bakery and skilled chef – the 40,000 square-foot store celebrates the spirit of Virginia Beach with the freshest, most flavorful, highest quality organic and natural products.
Opening day will commence with a traditional Whole Foods Market bread breaking ceremony – a unique twist on a ribbon cutting, followed by the official opening at 10 a.m. Making a big splash will be the seafood department withSeafood Circus. From opening to 8 p.m., take the bait and join Whole Foods Market’s skilled fishmongers who will be serving up fresh and local seafood. During the event, located in the store’s parking lot, fishmongers will be shucking oysters, de-scaling and de-boning whole salmon and serving up shrimp by the pound.Opening day and week will also feature plenty of free tastings, live music, cooking programs, tours and fun for the whole family.
I am not sure what I’m most excited for…a HUGE array of natural and organic food readily available to my family and I, or the slew of high trained employees who will be there to help with every question or need I’ll need in my journey to create more organic meals!
What are you most excited about?
