Glover Park Whole Foods Reopening Soon
By April 19, 2021 2 5809•
The red brick facade has been painted gray. The clock above the garage entrance is gone. A fresh set of Whole Foods signage has been erected. The door is open, but a sign reads: “Store is Closed.” Construction workers are moving about the store. Peeking inside, those who have shopped at the market since its opening in 1996 can detect the outline of an emerging store.
Yes, the long lament — since March of 2017 — by Glover Park, Burleith and Georgetown residents over the closure of the Whole Foods Market at 2323 Wisconsin Ave. NW has come to an end.
Although not confirmed by Whole Foods, rumors are flying that its Glover Park store could reopen during the summer. The PoPville blog predicts a May reopening. Last year, Chris Jones of the gloverkparkdc blog predicted a September opening. Whole Foods has not issued any statement concerning a reopening date for its Glover Park store.
Last year, the two parties in a lawsuit — the grocer and the landlord — settled before the case was to go to trial over the issue of rodents.
“We are thrilled to announce that Whole Foods Market will be returning to Glover Park,” said a Whole Foods spokesperson in a statement last year. “We will be completing a remodel of the store before reopening our doors, so stay tuned for more details on timing. We look forward to returning to serving the community we’ve been part of for more than 20 years.”
Whole Foods is owned by Amazon.
