Whole Foods Market® Bowery replacing beer with coffee in prime corner spot
Meant to mention this much earlier, given how popular posts about the Whole Foods Market® Bowery are... So, the store has shut down its sizable Beer Room (as of April 17) on the corner of Chrystie and East Houston ... signage points to an incoming Coffee Bar, likely a much better all-day draw than a beer store. (One employee said she thought that the Coffee Bar would be two levels.)
However, WFB isn't done with beer... the sizable suds stock has been moved into the main part of the store... though without any kind of growler service (WFB did away with its homebrew stock in 2013) ...
This is just the latest in WFB enhancements for the 10-year-old store ... including a rebooted bakery and prepared foods region.
There was news yesterday that Albertsons may make a bid to buy Whole Foods.
