Whole Foods announces Oklahoma City opening date
The natural grocer says it will open its Oklahoma City store in the Classen Curve shopping center Oct. 12.
After years of speculation and anticipation, Whole Foods has set a date: Oct. 12.
That's when the upscale natural foods grocer plans to open its Oklahoma City store, the company said Thursday. Doors will open at 8 a.m.
• Opening Oct. 12.
• Store hours will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
• Address: 6001 N Western Ave.
Cynthia Reid, vice president of marketing and communications for the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, said judging by the crowds at the recent openings of The Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City and Sunflower Farmers Market, city residents are excited to have new places to shop.
“People are anxious to try out new retail options,” she said.
And like the others, expect traffic jams, long lines and a mob of people when the 41,000-square-foot Whole Foods opens in the Classen Curve shopping center, at Classen Boulevard and Western Avenue. A grand opening celebration will begin before the store opens at 8 a.m. and continue throughout the day, a spokeswoman said.
What will it be like?
The store will stock products such as Oklahoma-raised grass-fed beef, local goat cheese, organic produce and more than 50 types of antipasti and olives.
