As part of the cause and effects of Harlem’s emergent gentrification, several big name stores, such as Whole Foods have been popping up in numerous neighborhoods—which, by the looks of it, will not come to halt anytime soon. Today, the company has confirmed that two new locations will be opening its doors in Harlem and the Upper East Side, so buyers who love their organic nutriments can now look forward to seeing yet another shop infiltrate the community, however, not until a couple of years, though:
The company says a 39,000 square foot Whole Foods is set to be built at 125th St and Lenox Ave, and is expected to open sometime during summer 2015. The 38,000 square foot Upper East Side store is slated for an early 2014 opening, and will be located at 87th St and 3rd Ave. Meanwhile, don’t forget about the Whole Foods outpost set to sink its farm fresh fangs into Williamsburg sometime in mid-2014, right next to that hopping Duane Reade bar on Bedford Ave. On the bright side, all those displaced, starving artists can get some free food?
