DETROIT, MI – The exact opening date of the highly anticipated Whole Foods in Midtown Detroit will be announced tomorrow, Red Elk Banks, the company’s executive operations coordinator, said at the Detroit Policy Conference Thursday.

For months, the company said the 20,000-square-foot Midtown store would be opening this Spring. In November, company spokeswoman Kate Klotz said the company typically announces its opening dates 60 days prior to coming online.

Work on the building began in August. Once open, the location will employ about 80 people.

The retailer was also reportedly given $4.2 million in tax credits to open the store at the corner of Woodward and Mack Avenue. Last June, the Michigan Economic Development Corp.announced a $1 million incentive for the construction of the Midtown store.
