Whole Foods Market (Nasdaq: WFM), the world’s leading natural and organic foods supermarket, confirmed today that its 23,300-square-foot Troy store, at 2880 West Maple Road, will be relocating down the street to a new 46,000-square-foot location in the 2100 block of East Maple Road in Birmingham. The company anticipates that the relocated store will open in late 2017.
“Whole Foods Market has been serving the Troy and Birmingham communities for many years in a relatively small store. During that time we’ve been very grateful for the strong support we’ve received from the community,” said Michael Bashaw, Midwest Regional President, Whole Foods Market. “Now we have the opportunity to improve our service to our customers with a larger store with a much larger selection.”
In 1997, Whole Foods Market acquired six Merchant of Vino stores, including the Troy location, in Greater Detroit. The Troy store opened Dec. 29, 1997, under the Whole Foods Market banner. The company has five other Michigan stores, including Rochester Hills, at 2918 Walton Boulevard, West Bloomfield, at 7350 Orchard Lake Road, Detroit, at 115 Mack Avenue, and two locations in Ann Arbor, 990 Eisenhower Parkway, and 3135 Washtenaw Avenue. The company will open its newest Michigan location in East Lansing, at 2778 East Grand River Avenue, in 2016.
