Whole Foods to Open at Bryant Park Jan. 28

Whole Foods is opening its long-awaited store across from Bryant Park next Friday on January 28 at 9 a.m.

Located at 1095 Avenue of the Americas, the store was first proposed over three years ago at the end of 2013. This will be the 11th Whole Foods store in New York City and only a block from Times Square.

The 36,000-square-foot store will be home to one of Whole Foods Market’s widest and most innovative selections of quick-serve prepared foods. Bryant Park is one of the highest pedestrian traffic areas in the U.S., and Whole Foods Market will add an exciting breakfast, lunch, dinner and shopping option for the area’s residents, commuters, office workers and tourists.

Opening day will commence with a bread-breaking ceremony at 8:45 a.m.

1095 Avenue of the Americas is also known as 3 Bryant Park and will soon be renamed Salesforce Tower as the Eastern regional headquarters of Salesforce.com.
