Whole Foods fans are in for some sad news. The supermarket announced in a statement today, April 29, that they’re closing their Montgomery and Mobile locations. Read on for details.
Closing the doors
Whole Foods has decided to close down six locations across the country, including some in Illinois, California and Massachusetts. Montgomery and Mobile locations are among the list of stores shutting down.
The Mobile location opened back in 2015, with Montgomery opening a year later in 2016.
They have not released any information about a timeframe for the closing, so get your shopping in while you can!
The following statement from Whole Foods confirmed the news:
“As we continue to position Whole Foods Market for long-term success, we regularly evaluate the performance and growth potential of each of our stores, and we have made the difficult decision to close six stores. We are supporting impacted Team Members through this transition and expect that all interested, eligible Team Members will find positions at our other locations.”
After the doors close in Montgomery and Mobile, Whole Foods will have two remaining locations in Alabama in Huntsville and Mountain Brook.
Whole Food’s Hoover location closed in 2020.
