The new store will go into the current Stein Mart® space in the Pinecrest Shopping Center at the intersection of Airport Boulevard and South McGregor Ave.

“Mobile is a rapidly growing city with a lot of interest in healthy food options,” said Omar Gaye, Whole Foods Market South region president. “We are looking forward to bringing the Whole Foods Market experience to Mobile and expanding our presence in the Gulf Coast area.”

Whole Foods Market features a fresh and enticing selection of natural foods in their purest state, free of artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, and preservatives as well as hydrogenated fats.  Whole Foods Market offers shoppers the highest quality, best-tasting and freshest foods in an inviting setting. Each store is unique and is designed to meet the needs of the neighborhoods where we live and work. Combine the great-tasting food with outstanding customer service and the result is a pleasantly atypical grocery shopping experience.

Whole Foods Market estimates that the new store will add approximately 150 additional jobs in the Mobile market.
