BIZNOTE: Signage going up for West Seattle’s Whole Foods Market

Thanks to the texter who sent that photo (and also to Mel, who sent a photo from just before it went up). Signage is going up for West Seattle’s Whole Foods Market, which WFM has said will open next month (exact date TBA) at 4755 Fauntleroy Way SW. It’s been 13+ years since WFM first declared West Seattle intentions (originally for the site that now holds LA Fitness across the street), 7 years since the announcement it would be part of what became The Whittaker.

    HELP ME I just fell off of my chair!!!! LOL!How long has this been going on…13+ years you say?

    Can you tell me when the entrance is to the Parking Garage so I can avoid it like the plague?  Is it going to be off of Fantleroy like Trader Joe’s?

      It’s off the midblock Fauntleroy alley

    Can’t wait. Already refinanced the house in preparation.

      so old and played out. If you can’t afford it then don’t shop there; no one is forcing you to.

    Yawn. Wake me up when the PCC opening day is announced.  As for  Metro’s nightmare of a remodel …..

    When Amazon bought them, I stopped going.  And will not go back.

      Way to stick it to The Man!

    Whole Foods is actually somewhat affordable now if you hit up deals that you get with Amazon Prime.

    Finally!  Went to Safeway instead of QFC recently and found perishables well past their pull date on the shelves, very poor/sketchy tasting “grass fed” beef that my significant other bought to grill, that pending remodel won’t fix those kinds of problems. WF and PCC will hopefully take some of the crowds away from QFC and TJs.

      Agreed! They also have lowered their prices on produce. I stop at Westlake WF off the C line just to buy good sized bunches of organic kale for $1.99. Best price in town. PCC is close at $2.50.

    People complain about WH prices, but the Metropolitan Market and the misnamed “Thriftway” aren’t exactly inexpensive. Nothing thrifty about either.

    First a new TOOL album and now this?  What a time to be alive!

    I’m so curious- with relative grocery saturation in Admiral and Fauntleroy, why no grocery development in Delridge? Zoning issues? As a Delridge area resident, while I’m not exactly outraged, I am perplexed. Mid-to-South area WS residents are essentially relegated to using a car to go grocery shopping. The QFC in Westwood Village thanks you all, I imagine. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
