Sneak peek at the new #WholeFoodsAddison!

It was bittersweet to find out that our Richardson Whole Foods was finally closed down, but I knew that meant that the brand new Whole Foods Addison was about to open! I am excited for our new nearest Whole Foods to have a larger footprint, meaning that it will carry more items that I have formerly had to drive 5-7 miles to another location to get (I know, I know, I am still spoiled…). The Whole Foods Addison at Beltline and the Tollway will open to the public on July 16. However, I was graciously given a media preview tour this morning and snapped the following pics!
