Whole Foods Lynnwood Opening

It's always exciting to hear about a new market opening. Whole Foods isn't a 100% organic grocery but it does carry quite a bit of organics and prides itself in not carrying products with any artificial colors and flavorings.  Their meats come from animals raised on vegetation and without antibiotics or growth hormones.  The quality of their products are much healthier than what you'd find at a regular grocery store.  This new store is located where the old Circuit City was, on 196th Street and 28th Ave W.

I had the opportunity to take a tour of the new store a week before opening with a few other people in the community.  We talked to several people from each of the different departments to hear about the high quality products they will be offering and answer any questions we had.

This particular store is a little different than some of the others.  It is geared more toward families.  Here's a list of some of the unique things you'll find:
  • some bulk products for families
  • a butter station where you can grind nuts to make your own nut butters 
  • kids play area near the front of the store
  • Saturday Kids Club with activities like cooking, gardening and recycling
  • a demo station by produce where cooking demos and classes will take place
I gotta be honest, I don't usually pay that much attention to the decor of grocery stores. I kind of get tunnel vision and go in for what I need and get out as quickly as possible.  Since I didn't do any shopping during the tour I was able to take time to really look around and I gotta say it was pretty impressive.  There are a lot of fun colors throughout the store. Much of the store was decorated with reclaimed Douglas Fir and is lit with LED lighting.

There will be a grand opening celebration on Thursday, March 15th. Festivities will begin at 8:00 with a bread breaking ceremony.  The first 100 people will get a free baguette and a reusable shopping bag.  The Lynnwood High School band will be performing, free coffee, breakfast and lots of samples from vendors will be served.  So if you are free on Wednesday stop by and check out the new store.  You won't be disappointed.

Here are a few photos I took during the tour I went on last week.
