SHREWSBURY, Mass (January 30, 2018) – Whole Foods Market, America’s Healthiest Grocery Store®, opened the doors of its newest natural and organic community market today in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.
The 50,000 square foot store, located in Lakeway Commons on Route 9 employs approximately 150 team members. Developed in the space that formerly housed community icon Spag’s, the store décor pays homage to the legacy of the late retail pioneer.
“When Whole Foods Market joins a community, our goal is to create an experience that reflects the communities it serves.” said Store Team Leader Alicia Cataldo. “We have developed a store here in Shrewsbury that we believe will exceed the expectations of our customers. We’ve built a true food and dining destination that is unlike anything the Worcester area has seen before.”
Along with the chef-run prepared foods department serving hot and cold breakfast, lunch and dinner options, as well as a taqueria station, freshly made pizza and Genji Sushi rolled on site, the Shrewsbury store is the first Massachusetts Whole Foods Market location to boast an in-store restaurant. The Borgatti Bar, located on the second level, features snacks & sides, sandwiches and salads complimented by a curated wine, beer and cocktail selection.
Customers will be delighted by unique features like a donut station serving up fresh, warm donuts at the Allegro coffee bar; self-serve nitro cold brew coffee and Kombucha on tap; self-serve Mochi ice cream and macaron cases and bulk candy selections, all meeting the company’s strict quality standards. Craft spirits, local and unique beer options and sommelier selected wines round out the impressive specialty department. Customers looking for a delicious nutritious boost will love the Squeeze Juice Co. venue serving sweet and savory bites on the go, wholesome superfood bowls, smoothies, juices, protein shakes and more.
Bountiful produce, specialty, meat, seafood, grocery, bakery and Whole Body departments round out the experience that is sure to satisfy and delight every shopper.
In keeping with the company’s commitment to supporting the communities they serve, Whole Foods Market Shrewsbury is marking the grand opening by donating 5% of the store’s opening day net sales divided evenly to five community non-profit organizations.
