Whole Foods Market has signed leases for stores in Kennesaw, Ga., and Huntsville, Ala. Both stores are expected to open in 2016.

The Kennesaw store will be located in a mixed-use development at the corner of Barrett Parkway and U.S. 41/Cobb Parkway. The newest store in Georgia for the natural and organic foods supermarket will occupy approximately 45,000 s.f. of retail space.

Whole Foods Market’s presence in Georgia includes eight locations in metro Atlanta and one store in Savannah. An Augusta store, opening later this year, will be the Austin, Texas-based grocer’s 10th location in the Peach State.

“We’re always looking for new locations around the Atlanta metro area,” said Jeremiah Ryan, Whole Foods Market South region executive coordinator of operations. “We’re excited that we’ve found a great location for the Kennesaw community, and we look forward to providing more people with good, healthy food options. We aim to be more than a grocery—our stores have a strong connection with the communities they serve. Whether through volunteer hours or fundraising efforts, we look forward to growing those partnerships with our newest store in Georgia.”

The planned Huntsville store will be located at the northeast corner of Bob Wallace Avenue and Memorial Parkway and will be Whole Foods’ third in the state. The Huntsville store will occupy approximately 42,000 s.f. of retail space in the Shops at Merchants Walk.

Whole Foods’ current Alabama store is in Birmingham. The company is scheduled to open in Mobile in 2015.

“We’ve been looking at the Huntsville market for awhile,” said Mike Howard, Whole Foods Market South region VP. “Huntsville is a great city with a lot of interest in natural and organic food, so we are excited to be bringing more healthy food options to the area.”
