New York is an expensive place to live so anytime a New Yorker can find a deal, it makes them happy to save. Not only is rent higher in New York so are the prices in stores. Even still, those living in New York will pay the high price because they love their name brands and they love stores they can trust. A popular grocery store for shopping is Whole Foods because of it’s wide selection of healthy and organic food. It is a bit pricey but it’s worth it for those living in New York.
Recently, Whole Foods has been opening budget-minded stores. There are currently three stores opened and over twenty in development. According to Grubstreet, Whole Foods has just made a huge announcement regarding New York. Whole Foods is working hard to open their first 365 store in New York. It’s set to open in 2018 in a Brooklyn neighborhood that is welcoming new developments.
These new stores are a great idea. It’s a chance for Whole Foods to reinvent themselves in a way that appeals to more people. In this day and age, so many people are budget-conscious. Whole Foods new 365 store is appealing to that need. The New York store will be found in Fort Greene in the Ashland Place Development which will eventually house an Apple store as well. The New York location will be significantly larger than the other 365 locations that are already open. Those previous locations are open in Los Angeles and this New York location is a welcome development.
Overall, it’s a new idea and one that is sure to stick around for a long time. That’s because the stores will be located in an ideal location. They are also offering a new idea which is something that New Yorkers will love. Finally, these deals will be great. Only time will tell if more of these locations will open and New York. It will also be interesting to see if they will bump out the full priced Whole Foods stores. Right now, it seems that both will co-exist for now.
