The Whole Foods in Columbia is aiming to open August 6, 2014, some Whole Foods employees were telling people yesterday.
The Columbia Association and Whole Foods had an event to show off plans for the fitness center that CA will run on the ground floor under Whole Foods. Mrs. HowChow stopped in, and the Whole Foods employees said they're aiming to open August 6 -- or some point in the first week of August.
The Whole Foods is going into the former Rouse Company building on the Columbia lakefront. It's right across Little Patuxent Parkway from the mall. Click here for all the posts about the Whole Foods in Columbia.
This isn't new, but Luke Lavoie wrote in March 2013 about how the parking and traffic will work at Whole Foods. The Sun article includes a drawing of the parking lot and a description of the plan to install a traffic light at the entrance.
