Whole Foods Market store visits

Our store visit reports feature floor plans, store photos and full commentary written by our team of international retail experts. Dozens of reports are made every year of stores that feature new concepts in food and grocery retail.


We look at how the retailer continues to drive penetration in the New York market through optimising locally-relevant partnerships.
With a more challenging outlook for specialist natural and organic retailers in the US, Whole Foods Market continues to raise the bar on store design and emphasising its points of difference. We visited its store in Davie, Florida to see how the format continues to evolve.
We visited Whole Foods Market’s flagship store in Manhattan to see how it is blurring retail and foodservice elements to meet a range of shopping missions.
We recently visited the newly opened Whole Foods Market 365 store in Santa Monica to review the changes which have been made to this innovative, value-orientated format, following its re-launch earlier this year. We assess its prospects for the future and what to expect under Amazon’s ownership.
Whole Foods Market continues to create some of the most compelling and innovative store formats in the sector. We recently visited its new store in North Burnaby, Canada to see how the retailer is developing its proposition around the key trends shaping food and grocery retailing, including fresh and locally sourced foods, natural and organic ranges, prepared foods and food-to-go.
