Bucks County’s first Whole Foods Market is opening sometime early next year in the Barn Plaza shopping center on Route 611 in Doylestown Township.
The highly anticipated announcement came from Brixmor Property Group, which manages the center, on its Facebook page.
The larger Doylestown community has long-wanted Whole Foods to open in the area, even petitioning the Amazon-owned grocer to open in central Bucks County. Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.7 billion in cash.
“We wholeheartedly welcome Whole Foods to the township,” said Barbara Lyons, chair of the Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors, in a statement. “They have a wonderful reputation as a grocer, they offer a great product and we’re happy they will be joining us as a member of the Doylestown Township community.”
Whole Foods is the first certified organic national grocer in the U.S. and has more than 500 stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
As Whole Foods prepares its Barn Plaza opening, the Marshall’s/Home Goods store it’s replacing is relocating to Cross Keys Place in Plumstead Township on West Swamp Road.
Before Marshall’s moves and Whole Foods can move in, it has to complete its lease, which, reportedly ends early next year.
