Whole Foods Now Open in The Boro

Tysons’ first Whole Foods officially opened its doors today.

The 70,000-square-foot store in The Boro development by the Greensboro Metro station is the Mid-Atlantic flagship store for the Texas-based grocery chain.

People on social media captured the long line of people early this morning awaiting the store’s opening at 8 a.m.

For the first 200 people who showed up, Whole Foods promised to offer a savings card ranging from $5 to $100 along with a reusable canvas tote bag featuring the Tysons store, according to a press release.

Inside, customers can find self-serve machines that slice pineapples, squeeze fresh orange juice and offer wine and beer that shoppers can sip while shopping.

A fresh bakery, premade meal options and a bar with happy hour specials and on-site dining also are available.

A bevy of food and drink options include a food hall featuring Officina, Genji IzakayaCuriosity Doughnuts and Rappahannock Oyster Co., along with self-serve hot and cold bars. There’s also an in-house bakery, butcher and seafood departments, a specialty foods section, an Allegro coffee and tea bar and a JRINK juice bar.

This location also features a bar called High Point — the largest bar in any Whole Foods, according to the store manager — on the second floor, along with a game room.
