Whole Foods Officially Coming to Eugene

whole-foodsEUGENE, Ore. — One of the most popular grocery store chains in the U.S. is officially coming to Eugene.

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.

    I wonder if the sky will fall as was predicted!

    Seems like Market of Choice would have their target base covered at a comparable/better price point.

    Btw, don’t they actively fund GOP candidates and campaign against healthcare and LGBT rights? This may not be a great fit… weird move on WF’s part. They’ll probably have to exclusively target students making bad fiscal and poor ethical decisions.

    Since I was treated so rudely several months ago at M/C when I tried to return a product (the background implication was that I was trying to pull a fast one), I am delighted to find that Whole Foods is on its way to reducing M/C’s bottom line. M/C does N O T have a good price point; they manipulate their advertising so it appears that way – it’s just an illusion. I spent considerable time working up a spreadsheet comparing existing food vendor’s prices and I can back up what I say.

    Market of Choice is way to expensive for the common people to shop there as it Trader Joes you might be able to go in and pick up one or two items if that but you couldn’t but meat, even cereal is at least a dollar or two higher at those two stores that at a regular grocery store. So I don’t shop a M/C or T/J and I probably won’t be shopping at W/F/M either yes I will go and browse around to check things out but if there anything like M/C or T/J’s my grocery $$ wouldn’t last me a whole month.
