Whole Foods Market Announces Plans For Clearwater Store

The company made the announcement on social media.

Updated, Nov. 8:

Whole Foods Market will not open in Clearwater until 2014 or later, the company's public relations department told a Patch editor Thursday via Twitter. A location has not been decided.


Whole Foods Market announced on Facebook Wednesday that a new store would soon be coming to the Clearwater area.

Around 5:45 p.m., the Whole Foods Market Facebook account posted:

"Here are the new store locations that have just been released: Altamonte Springs & Clearwater, FL; Hyannis, MA; Morristown, NJ; Philadelphia & South Hills, PA; Dallas, TX; Seattle, WA; New York City, NY (Upper East Side & Harlem) and North Carolina!"

The area press office did not have any details about the Clearwater location for the natural and organic grocery store, but promised details would be released soon. 

Stay with Clearwater Patch for updates.

Where do you think would be the best location for a Whole Foods in Clearwater?

Where they are closing the Publix at Sunset Point and US19! Please :)

I think the best location for Whole Foods would be at areas around Countryside Mall or Clearwater Mall. Where one can do combined shopping.

The Publix is closing at US19 & Sunset. I bet it will go in there.

I know that it is going into the Sears space at Countryside Mall.

I agree with the lady who a dew days ago suggested the K-Mart atore located at Gulf to Bay and Belcher
Maurice Covert November 16, 2012 at 04:53 AM
I meant to say the old K-Mart Store that then became the Sears Essentials that was located at Gulf to Bay and Belcher

I'm not saying I don't believe you but I work for the company and find it highly unlikely. They like their locations to be stand alone or at least the main focus of a small plaza. It would also kill their business during the holidays. I would rather go to the Publix down the street if I had to find a parking spot at the mall just to grab a few items.

Hi Brad, I know this because the company that I work for wanted the Sears location, but Whole Foods got it.

Anticarcinogens that may help prevent cancer can also be found in many food especially fruits and vegetable. Antioxidants are important groups of compounds that may help remove potentially harmful chemicals. It is however often difficult to identify the specific components in diet that serve to increase or decrease cancer risk since many food, such as beef steak and broccoli, contain low concentrations of both carcinogens and anticarcinogens.

Because a strong majority of firefighter positions are government positions, firefighters often qualify for the same benefits as other government employees. Eighty-nine percent of state and local government employees have access to retirement benefits while 87 percent have access to medical care benefits. Thanks. Regards, http://weightlosspunch.com/
