I got the square footage from their website. They only give it for new stores.

Any idea how large the Whole Foods is in places like Montclair? What about the one in Chelsea - it seems much smaller than Columbus Circle or Union Square. I think parking is a non-issue if population density is high.

Maybe Trader Joe's and Whole Foods could form a joint venture and JC could be the first place with a Trader Joe's Whole? Sorry, but this Lucent Alcatel thing has just gotten me thinking about M&As in a big way.

The new developments would love to get Whole Foods here but I don't think they have enough square footage or parking. If I am not mistaken, I think 77 Hudson Street only has 20,000 square feet for retail. Columbus Tower has 31,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.

Look at the square footage in Manhattan:

New York City (Tribeca)
Whole Foods Market
Greenwich St & Warren St
New York, NY
55,000 sq. ft.
Opening date to be announced.

New York City
Whole Foods Market
Bowery & Houston St.
New York, NY
66,000 sq. ft.
Opening date to be announced.

We're chiming in anyway because we want to believe. Like I'll dismiss the line about Whole Foods needing parking (Manhattan has several Whole Foods without parking and we're kinda like Manhattan, except without the opera). I'll dismiss the April 1st part because April 1st happens every year, and sometimes stuff that's said on that day turns out to be true. I'll dismiss the lack of a mention on the Whole Foods website because they may be negotiating the lease in secret to keep their costs down and aren't quite ready to go public with the announcement. It could be true. Maybe.

I want to believe!

You guys are right...it is totally an April Fool's joke. It becomes obvious when you read the rest of that day's post.

I think it's just another rumor of Whole Foods coming to Jersey City.

Years ago, when I first heard a similar rumor, I eventually heard through a friend who knew someone in the Whole Foods corporate offices that they would not open a location that didn't have significant parking.

It might happen, but I'm not holding my breath.

This rumor has been debunked here before. That and a Whole Foods going into The Beacon and The Shore Club.

Go to their web site, there's no store announcement in their press area, and their extensive listing of stores in development does not include Jersey City.

Now, that's not to say there isn't something in the works. But, don't hold your breath.

Personally I'd prefer a Wegmans Market before Whole Foods.

Whole Foods' corporate website doesn't list Jersey City as having a store in development. I've also heard it said that there will be a whole foods in new developments on the marina. I think developers and/or realtors must spread this rumor to make properties seem more attractive.

Is there any merit to this?

"Whole Foods, the gourmet grocer legions of avid fans have been hoping would soon open a Jersey City branch, will occupy the bottom two floors of the new tower being constructed at the Grove Street PATH station."

http://www.newyorkssixth.com/

Can anyone confirm or deny this?
