As the world’s leading provider of natural and organic foods, Whole Foods is known for maintaining the strictest quality standards in the grocery industry with a strong commitment to sustainable agriculture. The 45,000 s.f. Merchant’s Walk location is Whole Food Market’s eighth store in Georgia, according to a press release.
The opening will be marked by a “bread-breaking” ceremony to be held at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday at 1311 Johnson Ferry Road in Marietta, Ga.
Wednesday’s grand opening also ushers in the new era of a dramatically redesigned Merchant’s Walk. With a redevelopment that began in August 2009, Merchant’s Walk now includes major aesthetic and parking improvements; the expansion and renovation of Georgia Theatre Company’s Merchant’s Walk Stadium Cinemas; and the addition of regional and national restaurants and retailers that include Marlow’s Tavern, The Cook’s Warehouse, Seed Kitchen & Bar, ULTA Beauty, Mirko Pasta, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Pinkberry and Gigi’s Cupcakes.
“Merchant’s Walk is a terrific location for the South region’s growing map of stores,” said Scott Allshouse, regional president for Whole Foods Market. “The East Cobb community is ready for a new grocery option and a new place to celebrate good food and healthy eating. We are especially thrilled to be partnering with our neighbor, The Cook’s Warehouse, and we’re pleased to work with Edens & Avant on this project.”
The new Whole Foods Market at Merchant’s Walk is open 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
