Whole Foods to open in St. Pete

St. Pete Lands 1st Whole Foods

There are over 500 Whole Foods Markets in the USA. St. Petersburg is getting its first. The 40,100-square-foot store near St. Pete’s Old Northeast neighborhood is the product of a retail redevelopment. It is in the building of what was once Suncoast Fitness.

The Tampa Bay Business Journal reports it is a smaller store than the Whole Foods that opened in 2021 in Midtown Tampa; that location is 48,000 square feet.The St. Pete store features a full-service seafood counter, a specialty cheese department, and over 180 craft beers — 50 of which are from local breweries. The St. Pete store will feature more than 800 items sourced from throughout the Southeast.

Austin, Texas-based Whole Foods was acquired by Amazon in 2017.
