(WALL, NJ – April 13, 2016) –Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM), the nation’s leading natural and organic foods supermarket, is pleased to announce the opening of its new store on Wednesday, April 13th at 9:00AM in Wall, NJ. The Wall location will be home to the 15th Whole Foods Market store in New Jersey, and the third in Monmouth County. The day will start with the company’s traditional bread breaking ceremony at 8:45AM followed by an array of tastings, vendor samplings, sales, and giveaways – including a free canvas beach tote for the first 200 customers!

As part of Whole Foods Market’s commitment to its local communities, Allaire Community Farm will receive 5% of the store’s sales from opening day to support a valued sanctuary within Wall Township.

The new 39,000 square foot store will offer an extensive variety of the highest quality natural and organic items making it the ultimate shopping destination for all of your household, beach-going and entertaining needs. Conveniently located and easily accessible in the shopping plaza at 1933 Route 35, shoppers can find an array of summer staples just in time for the season, including organic produce, a bevy of locally sourced seafood, plus our team of expert in-house butchers and fishmongers, ready to take custom requests to make grilling this summer extra delicious.
