Organic-loving, upscale shopping, aisle strolling individuals will be delighted to know that NYC’s newest Whole Foods just opened up at 1 Wall Street.
The Lower Manhattan location adds to the nearly 20 NYC locations across the boroughs. According to the company, the new store’s design features “Financial District inspired influences” and is otherwise known as One Wall Street.
The 42,000-square-foot space offers 1,000+ local items, ranging from beers to meat to seafood. Shoppers at One Wall Street can grab a steaming cup of joe at the full-service coffee bar from Partners Coffee or grab a slice at the self service pizza station, reports Tribeca Citizen.
According to Tribeca Citizen, the new location will be home to the Local and Emerging Accelerator Program (LEAP). This unique program seeks to promote business growth for a variety of up-and-coming brands. Through a completion of mentorship and education, these brand participants have the chance to join the list of Whole Foods suppliers and to be stocked on store shelves.
“Whole Foods Market has long been committed to supporting small, local and emerging producers, and the Local and Emerging Accelerator Program enhances our ability to strengthen our relationships with local brands and elevate our product selection for communities across the country,” said Will Betts, Vice President of Local Merchandising at Whole Foods Market.
One Wall Street officially opened its doors on Wednesday, January 11th.
The new store follows another recent Whole Foods opening in NoMad last summer. Similar to the Wall Street location, the NoMad store has its own coffee bar (this one from Café Grumpy) and a plethora of local products in stock.
