Whole Foods’ new store in The Boro development is set to open by the end of October.

The new 70,000 square-foot grocery store will be the region’s largest Whole Foods and feature a food hall. It will be Whole Food’s Mid-Atlantic flagship store.

The store (1635 Boro Place) is set to open Oct. 30 with a celebration featuring music, samples of products and giveaways starting at 8 a.m., according to a press release.

The first 200 customers will receive a custom “Whole Foods Market Tysons Corner” reusable tote bag along with a savings card with a value ranging between $5 and $100.

“We can’t wait for this community to experience their new Whole Foods Market,” Carl DePree, the store’s team leader, said in the press release. “From its responsibly-sourced, local and innovative product offerings, to its in-store food hall, bar and game room, to its modern design elements, this store is unlike any other.”

The store will have a food hall on the first floor, including:

Shoppers can also expect a pub and game room on the second floor, an in-house bakery, butcher and seafood departments, a specialty foods section, an Allegro coffee and tea bar and a JRINK juice bar.

Prepared foods at the hot and cold bars will have a pizza bar, an Indian venue with two in-store tandoori ovens, a barbecue bar and a deli, the press release said.

The store plans to donate 5% of its net sales on Thursday, Nov. 7, to Food For Others, a local nonprofit that helps hungry families.

Additionally, all donations from Whole Foods Market’s bag credit program for shoppers who bring their own bags will benefit Fairfax Casa, which advocates for abused or neglected kids, from opening day until the end of the year.

Whole Foods is also currently hiring for jobs at the Tysons spot, with hiring events this Friday and Saturday (Oct., 4-5). The location plan to employ roughly 325 full- and part-time employees, according to the press release.
