It's official: Whole Foods to open store in Detroit's Midtown in 2013

I thought this was big enough news given the image of the city to warrant a post outside of the development subforum:

It's official: Whole Foods to open store in Detroit's Midtown in 2013

BY JOHN GALLAGHER AND ZLATI MEYER

July 27, 2011

Whole Foods made it official today: The upscale, organic-food grocery chain will build a store in Detroit’s Midtown district.

The 20,000 square foot location, slated to open in 2013, will be located north of Mack Avenue between Woodward and John R.

“Detroit’s food scene is impressive and vibrant. Whole Foods Market is excited to soon be part of the positive energy and momentum as a true community partner on the ground,” said Red Elk Banks, Michigan’s executive operations coordinator for Whole Foods Market.

“We look forward to celebrating the great producers, food artisans and farmers in the area, giving them a retail space for their quality products while ensuring access to all-natural foods.”

Whole Foods estimated it will add approximately 60-75 additional jobs in the area with its store.

...
It's a smaller version of the store, I believe, but it's a huge symbolic coup for the city.

As far as I know the Meijer store is all but certain. In fact, there are possible plans to build another store in the city on the West Side in the Old Redford/Rosedale Park area.
