If you're one of many bargain-hunters who have playfully dubbed Whole Foods Market "Whole Paycheck," get ready for a whole new vibe. On Wednesday, May 25th, the wildly popular grocer is set to unveil its highly-anticipated first 365 by Whole Foods Market, located in Silver Lake's Glendale Boulevard space formerly occupied by Ralphs.
While prices will be similar to what you'd find at Ralphs, 365 is all about "quality-meets-value" and will feature "a curated mix of products that adhere to the company's industry-leading quality standards in an environment that's fun and convenient for shoppers." AKA, consider it Whole Foods Market's hip kid-sister.
Silver Lake shoppers can look forward to a range of stylish "Friends of 365" features at this market, including the debut West Coast arrival of hot New York vegan restaurant by CHLOE, Allegro Coffee Company, and teaBOT—"a new retail platform that provides custom grab-and-go tea in less than 30 seconds." Well, damn.
On the fashion front, 365 team members will all don custom uniforms from sustainable casual goods purveyor Loomstate, known for outfitting the folks at SoulCycle. Stay tuned for more!
