Pacesetter and organic pioneer Whole Foods Market is taking the Empire State by storm. The retailer is pushing forward with its expansion plans, honing in on Long Island as its next target.
A new flagship location is expected to be built in Garden City, New York, on the site of a former Pepsi bottling plant. According to Newsday, the new Garden City site will be a Whole Foods flagship location, spanning 53,000 square feet. The other four existing Whole Foods on Long Island range from 20,000 square feet to 47,500 square feet. Consumers will find the new mammoth location at 867 E. Gate Blvd.
Soon to follow up Garden City will be the opening of another site in Massapequa, New York. The planned Whole Foods will be in a former Babies R Us space, at 5214 Sunrise Hwy., in the Sunrise Promenade shopping center. It’s set to open in the fall of 2021 and will take up approximately 38,500 square feet.
