Whole Foods Market announced Wednesday plans to open its ninth store in Oregon at the corner of East Broadway Avenue and High Street.
A representative with Whole Foods says the new store will bring an estimated 150 new jobs to the area.
“We have long believed that Eugene was a wonderful place for Whole Foods Market because the community’s values mirror so much of what we hold important,” said Joe Rogoff, Regional President for Whole Foods Market in the Pacific Northwest.
Whole Foods stores have become popular over the years for their selection of natural, organic and local products.
The Eugene location for Whole Foods is scheduled to open in the first half of 2016.
