Whole Foods “Actively Working” to Open Gowanus Store


More on the never-ending saga about whether or not Whole Foods is committed to building a store on its contaminated site on 3rd Street in the Gowanus...To recap: Eight days ago, the blog Brooklyn the Borough quoted a company spokesperson as saying, “at this juncture we do not have immediate plans to open a new store in Brooklyn but do hope to be there someday soon.” The Brooklyn Paper confirmed the quote that day and continued to stick by its story while the company did a Clinton-esque parsing of its previous statement. Finally, this morning, the paper reported a "180-degree turnaround from last week" with the following statement from Whole Foods: “Certainly, our spokesperson’s statement could have been a lot clearer. [But] that doesn’t change the fact that Whole Foods Market is actively working on plans for a store at the Gowanus site.”
