Whole Foods comes to the Palm Springs area!!!
Whole Foods Market has confirmed it is opening a store in Town Center shopping center in Palm Desert, just a few miles south of Palm Springs. The store will take over the Best Buy building. “We’re thrilled they’re (Whole Foods) coming to the desert,” said Ruth Ann Moore, economic development manager for the city of Palm Desert. “I expect this will make for a very successful shopping center there,” she said, adding that Town Center will be undergoing renovation and expansion with more announcements of stores to come. “We are excited to open a store in Palm Desert,” said Ashley Gibbons, associate marketing coordinator for the the natural and organic food store’s Southern Pacific Region.
For many years, the people of Palm Springs and Palm Desert (and the rest of the Coachella Valley) have all wondered why we didn’t have a Whole Foods. The three top “high-end” grocers here are Bristol Farms, Jensen’s and Trader Joes. In my humble opinion, none of them compare to the quality, freshness and diversity of the Whole Foods product!
I’m thrilled to have a Whole Foods near Palm Springs. For one, their chicken Sonoma salad is the ultimate.
