Whole Foods will open its doors at 5100 Beltline Road in Addison on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 8:00AM. They have gone to great lengths to pay homage to Kaboom Town. Much of the artwork and decor reflects the town's highlights from the firework bursts to airplanes paying tribute to Addison's Flight Museum. The new 40,000 square foot building is green from floor to ceiling using reclaimed wood from Texas and 21 auto adjustable skylights.
The new store offers fresh and organic goodies for food and wine lovers such as custom cheese creations upon request, over 550 varieties of spicy and savory cheeses; and a new "Wine Geek" feature with wine favorites from local oenophiles, sommeliers, chefs and local media. There will also be new ripe ideas hanging around on the flying banana display in the produce section and tasty lemon dill almonds. Local DFW suppliers will provide everything from Deep Ellum beer, wine to Dorper lamb. Patrons can try one of the many beers on draft and wine by the glass at the Spirit of 76 bar which has 25 beverages on tap.
If you are thinking about eating cleaner or adding more whole foods to your diet, try the concierge service. Guests can email or call in their grocery order and Whole Foods will do the shopping for you. They can collect plant-based goodies from local farmers and have it ready for you in time for dinner. Your first concierge order is free.
If you are in the area, drop by on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at 8:00AM. The first 100 guests will receive Whole Foods Market gift cards in varying denominations ranging from $5 up to $250. You can even charge your electric car at the new charging station.
