Whole Foods Market Sets Opening Date for Playa Vista Store


Last week Whole Foods Market announces Wednesday, June 17, 2015 as the opening date for the new 35,000-square-foot store at the Runway at Playa Vista located at the corner of Jefferson and McConnell in Playa Vista. Located as the anchor in a 3,500-unit residential development, the store address is 12746 Jefferson Blvd Playa Vista, CA 90094.


“We are excited that our newest store opening in Los Angeles will be in Playa Vista,” said Patrick Bradley, president, Whole Foods Market Southern Pacific Region. “This location in such a thriving creative, aware and engaged community is a great place for us to share all of Whole Foods Market’s wonderful offerings.”


The store will offer expansive social spaces designed to serve as extensions of the home and cultivate a uniquely connected community, including a full service bar, Astro Bar, multiple dining areas and seating to accommodate more than 150 people.  Other unique offerings will include home delivery to Playa Vista residents, a flexi card plan for local Loyola Marymount University students and seven levels of parking with more than 200 spaces.


As Whole Foods Market does in every community in which they open, they will partner with like-minded organizations to foster and support local non-profits, suppliers, businesses and residents to support community development.


To commemorate the opening, Whole Foods Market will host several upcoming events, including a reusable shopping bag design contest to engage the community’s creative businesses. The winning design will be sold at the Playa Vista store for a limited time and proceeds will go back to the winning organization’s non-profit of choice.

The Playa Vista store will bring more than 200 jobs to the area and be the first Whole Foods Market store opening in Los Angeles since 2008.
