While Williamsburg VA still has no Whole Foods Market but residents of Va Beach will be able to shop at their new Whole Foods earlier than expected. The Virginia Beach store is now set to open on October 24th at 10 a.m, several months ahead of initial expectations.
This is the first Hampton Roads location for the popular grocer, known for its selection of specialty goods and organic and health products.
The closest Whole Foods store to Williamsburg at this time is in Richmond, in the Short Pump Area.
On opening day, the Va Beach Whole Foods plans to provide free tastings, live music and cooking demonstrations, the company confirmed Thursday in a news release. The 40,000-square-foot store at 1800 Laskin Road will operate daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m
