Whole Foods Coming to Port Chester

The company has signed leases for eight new stores across the country, including one in Port Chester, according to a report

Whole Foods is coming to Port Chester.

The news was revealed as the grocery chain released its first quarterly report for 2012: The company says it's inked eight leases for new stores across the country, including one here in the village.

According to the report, Whole Foods continues to grow amid the recession, and has even outpaced competitors in the high-end grocery business, with a 13 percent increase in sales.

The Austin-based chain has 317 stores and styles itself as a socially responsible business, offering natural and organic foods. The report does not offer details about individual stores, but says the eight new spaces leased average 33,100 square feet.

The new stores will open beginning in 2013, according to the company.

what about the old maryann's on the Post Rd that whole spot is looking kind of shabbie and with the new gym going in they might want to spiffy it up

where is Whole Foods going...? maybe where the old A&P was.. if so the shopping center might want to look at cleaning it up and paving the lot looks dumpy from the road

Hey, Patch, how about giving us the whole story for once? Where are they putting Whole Paycheck? And how will all the added traffic from Rye effect PC this time?

That's my best guess, trying to get that verified.

It's preliminary information that was buried deep within the company's Q1 report. The report says the stores will open beginning in 2013, but that doesn't mean the Port Chester store will open in 2013...just that some of the eight new locations will open next year. Traffic studies and that sort of thing would happen at the municipal/planning level. This is by no means meant to be a comprehensive report, it's simply a post letting readers know that plans to open a store here are in the very early stages. As more information becomes available, we'll follow up and update.

Your post says that a lease has been inked or at least implies that it has been. I'm sure a follow up call to the company's corporate communications team would have provided the necessary information.

It would, and it has. There's very little information at this point, and I'm waiting to verify some details. I know these short posts can seem incomplete, and I've had to get used to it as well, coming from a print background. But online is a different ballgame, and the format allows for more flexibility. I could have held the information when I read the earnings report at 6 a.m., but why wait? Readers are interested to know the store is coming to PC, and there's no shortage of space or time for updates. I promise you Port Chester Patch will print as much information as is available and will provide updates. Thanks for your feedback.

Appreciate the info, NIk. Keep up the great work.

Great news. Now the citizens of PC will have access to a superior selection of healthy options which are affordable if you shop carefully. Fast food and processed foods are expensive too considering the long term health impacts they cause.
