Whole Foods Coming To Hampton Roads

Whole Foods Market, the world’s leading natural and organic foods supermarket, is coming to Virginia Beach, its first Hampton Roads location

The lease was announced during the third quarter earnings conference call by John Mackey and Walter Robb, co-chief executive officers yesterday.

“Virginia Beach is excited once again to be the first in the market to announce the much anticipated plan to build a Whole Foods Market store in our city.” said Mayor William D. Sessoms, Jr. “Whole Foods Market is a leader in the expanding natural and organic foods business.  The Whole Foods Market brand has been built on consistently selling the highest quality natural and organic food products and maintaining high standards of quality, customer service and community involvement. The fact that we have attracted one of the most coveted retailers in the country to our community validates our strategy for growth and sustainability.”

Whole Foods Market  signed a lease with S.J. Collins Enterprises for the construction of a 40,000 square-foot store at the former Saturn Dealership along Laskin Road in the Hilltop section of Virginia Beach.

“The Whole Foods Market is the perfect complement to the upscale retail and restaurant experience in the Hilltop area.” said Warren D. Harris, Director of Virginia Beach Economic Development. “We worked for over a year with the Whole Foods Market and their development team to pull together a redevelopment plan for their preferred site on Laskin Road. I can’t think of a better fit for our community than the Whole Foods Market.”

Scheduled to open by year-end 2013, the new Virginia Beach Whole Foods Market will be the largest natural and organic supermarket in the region. In keeping with Whole Foods Market’s national initiative to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, the Virginia Beach facility will feature many green building standards.
