Whole Foods Market's first store in Kirkland, Washington, is expected to open in summer 2017. The 40,000-square-foot store will be located in the mixed-use development at I-405 and NE 124th Street.
“We’re so excited to be joining the community in Kirkland, and we look forward to sharing our mission and values with our new neighbors,” said Joe Rogoff, president of Whole Foods Market’s Pacific Northwest Region. “Creating jobs, supporting local producers and finding opportunities to partner with area schools and nonprofits are core to our philosophy and practices, and we’re eager to begin this work in Kirkland.”
In addition to temporary construction jobs, the Kirkland Whole Foods Market will create an estimated 150 long-term jobs in the community.
