Whole Foods Market has announced that it will open a new Kennesaw area location in a mixed-use development at the corner of Barrett Parkway and U.S. 41/Cobb Parkway.

Last week, Atlanta’s Fuqua Development LLC filed plans with the state for the approximate 50-acre project that would include 450,000 square feet of retail space and 30 residential units.

The Kennesaw area supermarket for natural and organic foods will occupy approximately 45,000 square feet of retail space and is slated to open in 2016.

“We’re always looking for new locations around the Atlanta metro area,” Jeremiah Ryan, Whole Foods Market South region executive coordinator of operations, said in a press release.

“We’re excited that we’ve found a great location for the Kennesaw community, and we look forward to providing more people with good, healthy food options. We aim to be more than a grocery – our stores have a strong connection with the communities they serve. Whether through volunteer hours or fundraising efforts, we look forward to growing those partnerships with our newest store in Georgia.”

Why can't they just redo that ugly shopping area across the street that is such an eyesore?

About time we got a Whole Foods in the area and cannot figure out why Trader Joe's isn't in Kennesaw.. I also have no ideas how that mobile home park has lasted at that location this long.

I'm thrilled. I hope they design it like the Avenues: lots of ornamental maples for shade, a couple fountains to enjoy, benches to sit on, wide walkways, a traffic-free zone for Whole Foods to sell their pumpkins and plants, outdoor tables to eat on. We already have plenty of ugly, lazy developments that have nothing but a parking lot and zero appeal.

You can thank Helen Goreham for our lack of Trader Joe's.

Sine Whole Foods and John Fuqua will put their "wonderful" development on top of my disabled daughter's home of 10+ years, I hope that they will give my disabled daughter a job -- she works only 4 hours per week, (or less) close by and will have to find a place to live, a place to work and handicapped transportation. How about it, ladies and gents.
