Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Whole Foods Market is opening a second store in the Richmond area, joining the Short Pump store that opened five years ago.

The store, which measures about 40,000 square feet, will be located on Broad Street near Hermitage Road. An opening date isn't set yet.

"Richmond, particularly the Broad Street area, has such a vibrant, unique energy," said Scott Allshouse, Mid-Atlantic regional president. "Ever since Whole Foods Market came to the area more than five years ago, we've built meaningful partnerships with local suppliers, community organizations and nonprofits. We're excited to expand those connections and make new neighbors in the process."

Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones said, "Neighborhoods come to life when Whole Foods Market arrives, bringing hundreds of new jobs and millions in new investment. We hope that this store will quickly turn West Broad Street into a thriving retail corridor with lots of excitement and new energy."
