AUSTIN, Texas (Jan. 20, 2017) – Whole Foods Market announced today that the Tri-State area’s first 365 by Whole Foods Market location will be in Brooklyn.

The store will be located at 300 Ashland Place, in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. The store’s opening date has not been set.
“We are so excited to bring the area’s first 365 store to Brooklyn,” said Christina Minardi, president of Whole Foods Market Northeast Region. “We opened our first Whole Foods Market store in the city in 2001, and our first Brooklyn store opened in 2013. Now we can’t wait to introduce our new store concept to Brooklynites.”
