â€œWe canâ€™t wait to join the Weehawken community,â€ Store Team Leader Jose Navas said in a statement.
â€œWe look forward to providing our neighbors with a variety of natural and organic grocery items, fresh grab-and-go prepared foods and access to hundreds of local products.â€
Whole Foods Market will open its new 32,000 square-foot Weehawken store, located at 1400 Waterfront Terrace in The Shops at Lincoln Harbor, at 9 a.m. on Friday, July 26.
Opening day celebrations will include complimentary Balthazar Bakery pastries and CafÃ© Grumpy coffee before the store opens, with the first 100 customers receiving a Whole Foods Market reusable canvas tote bag.
Additionally, shoppers can sample an assortment of products from local suppliers on opening day and throughout opening weekend.
The store boasts fresh produce, a full-service-butcher department, an in-house bakery that includes vegan and gluten-free options, a salad bar, coffee bar, specialty food sections – among many other options.
To celebrate joining the community, five percent of the storeâ€™s net sales on opening day will benefit the Weehawken High School Culinary Initiative.
Whole Foods Market Weehawken will employ approximately 190 full and part-time team members and following the grand opening, the store will be open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily.
