Whole Foods North Raleigh Update

An update to the continuing story on the 2nd Raleigh location for Whole Foods.  I've been following this story since September 2008 (with updates in March 2009 and again in October 2009) and here is the latest from this February 2nd Triangle Business Journal article.

On Wednesday, 2/3, the new Whole Foods North Raleigh location broke ground at the Market @ Colonnade shopping center.  The $20 million center (anchored by WF) is located at the corner of Six Forks Road & Colonnade Center Drive (just south of Strickland Road).  The Whole Foods store will be 40,000 square feet (compare that to the 12,000 square foot Trader Joe's that opened recently in Raleigh) and will also have another 17,000 square feet of retail space.  The target opening date is early 2011 and the store will be the first new Whole Foods in NC in more than a decade (most current Whole Foods took over previous grocery space like Wellspring).
