Savannah, GA Whole Foods Market

Savannah is bursting with excitement over their NEW addition - 
Whole Foods Market!

Locals are beyond happy about the new store, the great quality, the perfect location, and the overall generated community excitement.
Whole Foods Market opened its first Savannah store on Aug. 13.
“We really look forward to opening our doors and being part of the Savannah community,” said Rachel Jones, manager of Whole Foods’ Savannah location.
<p node="media-caption">Corey Dickstein/Savannah Morning News                                                                           <br/><br/> Whole Foods Market announced  it will open its store at 1815 East Victory Drive on Aug. 13.</p>  The store, located on the former Backus automobile dealership on Victory Drive near Truman Parkway, has been in development since May 2012. Atlanta-based developers Knightswood and S.J. Collins Enterprises demolished Backus’ trademark pink buildings and several neighboring structures to construct the Victory Station shopping center.
The center will be home to Whole Foods, a PetSmart and a handful of small retailers.
Savannah's Whole Foods features an organic salad bar, in-store smoked barbecue, fresh-made gelato, natural body care products and nutritional supplements and a parlor with eight beers on tap. Locals are happy and visitors should be too!!
