      With its mix of innovative offerings and its mid-century design, the anticipation of Brea’s new east-end destination center Whole Foods Market was very apparent today at the Grand Opening on Feb. 17. The participants who attended the groundbreaking ceremony felt “amazing” to see the retail site completed.

        Before the Grand Opening, the friends and family pre-event was held on Feb. 15. According to attendee Junghee Sim, resident of Brea, the event was “fascinating.”

          “Before going to an event, I felt reluctant to purchase some food because I did not know how the tastes would be like. However, during an event, I could try and decided to purchase them,” Sim said. Store highlights included prepared foods, coffee, juice and smoothie bar, produce, in-store bakery, seafood, meat, whole body, specialty, and grocery.

            “As a housewife, I can distinguish between healthy and unhealthy food. Whole Foods Market’s food was really healthy. My favorite food was a traditional pokey. I am willing to go there,” Sim stated.

              As America’s first national certified organic grocer, Whole Foods Market was named “America’s Healthiest Grocery” store by Healthy magazine. The company’s motto, “Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole Planet” captures its mission to ensure customer satisfaction and health.

                “We heard from locals that they wanted a bar with wine and local craft beer, grab-and-go food options, kid-friendly spaces and interesting culinary experiences,” said Patrick Bradley, president of Whole Foods Market’s Southern Pacific Region. “From the self-serve pizza station, to the bar-restaurant with local brews, to the upstairs mezzanine area for tastings and Kids’ Club events, we’re thrilled to bring North Orange County a unique shopping experience that was designed to address the community’s needs and wishes.”

                  The store will open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
