Let's pray everyday for the store to go belly up. Please? We can hold a community prayer session

Yup, about 3 blocks north of WTC, on 14th, 2 blocks east of the path stop and on 24th and 7th.

(all are inferior to trader joe's. F WF GO TJ!)

I am so going to be going to the Newark location. I'm sick of making the public transit trek to the Columbus Circle Whole Foods. Supposedly the Newark location prices will be cheaper.

Two year wait though.

This is like the nudniks that want more bars. There's everything you could want now in DTJC but people can't be satisfied.

The company has looked at neighboring cities to Newark, such as Hoboken and Jersey City, but hasn't find the right location yet for a Whole Foods, Mr. Sinatra said.


Hope...

I always said Jersey City would NEVER get a Whole Foods, and I'm fine with that. In fact, I'm relieved. I would rather get a Wegman's anyway. Whole Paycheck is priced at a premium, and I think it's way overpriced for what they have to offer.

Comparing Jersey City and Newark is like comparing Chicago and Detroit. Both have their issues, but one has a hugely vibrant and prosperous core and the other does not.

The "Newark isn't that bad" types are just concerned with the ascendance of Jersey City as the state's biggest and most important city. Newark has an airport, pastel de nata, and now Whole Foods, and then a wasteland. Doesn't even come close to what we have.


Clearly, Whole Foods owes you a supermarket. How dare they miss all that stuff.

HA!!!

I'd imagine Whole Foods knows what they're doing..

If WF really opens in Newark - in other words, if this isn't pre-election hype - I'm sure they're getting a sweetheart lease that will keep their operating costs at rock-bottom. They'll be buying great PR and a buddy in the US Senate. Not a bad deal for them. And totally agree with previous posters - Newark has a loooooooong way to go before it can be called "gentrifying".

First off, there is a Whole Foods in West Orange...are we supposed to believe that surrounding towns like the other Oranges together are more affluent than DTJC, Hoboken, Society Hill & Port Liberte, and most of Weehawken, which would give your typical NJ suburb a run for its money in terms of affluence.

Hoboken ranks very high in NJ in terms of average income. I'm sure DTJC isn't far behind.

Second of all, Newark is a hole. Sorry, it is. It has good Portuguese food and that is the beginning and end. Most RU-N and NJIT students don't live there. At the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert at the Rock a year or two ago, a bunch of thugs attacked people exiting the arena including a boy and his father.

So yeah can't see a rock concert safely but I'd walk down the street there with a Whole Foods bag? Really?

I rarely concur with the average NJ.Com comment but they are not horribly off the mark.

There is surface parking- not much- but there is- in DTJC. The Pathmark lot or the area north of the tunnel (which would be walking distance for much of Hoboken and perfect with all the tunnel traffic) would be ideal. Target, Modells, A&P, all have surface parking.

I also concur with the sentiment that is mostly anti-chain here except when it suits people. Tear down the mall, but bring in WF! My consumerism over your consumerism!

And finally, TJ is superior by a lot. It's the same thing, but not a rip off, and less hipster and stroller mom types.

FWIW, I would much rather have a decent independent market than a WF.

And yes, the Tribeca WF is much, much closer than a WF in newark would be.

+1 It's an overrated yuppie trap. I went to one in an affluent area of Connecticut recently. It was so mediocre and so overpriced that it was ridiculous. I ain't drinking that Kool-Aid.

It isn't purely demographics. They are moving into a large building with a huge parking lot across the street. There is a major transit hub and a world class arena and performing arts center right nearby. There are a lot more workers that spend the day right around that building than there are in downtown JC. There are thousands of college students living on campuses within a few blocks of the store. Prudential is already in town and Panasonic is moving in over 1,000 workers as we speak. Not to mention the municipal workers and law firms. It is simply a better location than Jersey City. They know what they are doing. And I suspect that Newark is a lot easier to deal with than Jersey City as far as getting a business up and running.

It is an 8 mile drive or 15-minute PATH ride and a 10-minute walk from the Grove Street station, so there's that.


I agree with you but it is faster and more convenient taking the PATH to the WTC and going to the WF flagship store near the WTC

It's funny how many people in downtown JC want a Whole Foods here. Most of these Whole Foods disciples would be the first people to rail against any big-box retailer opening here. But when it comes to $22bn Whole Food Market, Inc. opening up a large store here they fall over themselves with excitement at the prospect of it happening. Funny.


I think people want something like a WFs. If a local, or smaller, retailer would open up something that covers their needs the community would love that as well. Still, you have a point.

They want a giant surface parking lot and JC is not putting in a giant surface parking lot for them. I'd rather have a TJ's or any number of other places.

There is a rumor that TJ's is coming to one of the new (under construction) buildings, but I have no idea if that has legs.
