Whole Foods Coming to Downtown Bellevue

Whole FoodsAfter months of speculation, Whole Foods has announced it will be the urban grocer occupying the space in the former JC Penny store at Bellevue Square. The new 365 store concept, named after the company’s house brand, is expected to offer less expensive items and less variety than the larger stores. Scheduled to open the second half of 2016, this will be the first of the small format stores to open in the Seattle area. Whole Foods plans to open other 365 stores in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Portland and Houston.

The company also plans to open a full size store in Kirkland at the former Totem Lake Mall. Scheduled to open mid-2017, it will be the first Whole Foods in Kirkland.
