Whole Foods to be Located by Classen Curve in Oklahoma City

Posted: Updated:


OKLAHOMA CITY -- Whole Foods Market offciailly announced today that have signed a lease with Chesapeake Energy to build a new location by Classen Curve.

Whole Foods announced it would be opening a store in Oklahoma City earlier this month. The new 35,000 square-foot store will be located along North Western Avenue between North Classen and N.W. 63rd Street, just north of Classen Curve.

"The addition of a Whole Foods Market to the Classen, Western, Grand and N.W. 63rd Street district contiguous to our corporate headquarters campus signifies a major step forward in our vision to create the most vibrant and dynamic urban environment for our employees and neighbors to live, work and play in Oklahoma. Without question, Whole Foods Market is the perfect complement to the upscale local retailers and restaurateurs in Classen Curve, south of the site where the new Whole Foods Market will be built," said Aubrey K. McClendon, CEO of Chesapeake.

The store is scheduled to open by the end of 2011 and will be the state's largest natural and organic supermarket.

"As people who have followed our growth know, we do not take a cookie-cutter approach to our stores, but instead will design and build this store with products and ingredients sought out by the Oklahoma City community. We appreciate the genuine warmth we have experienced in Oklahoma City and look forward to serving the community," said Walter Robb, chief operating officer and co-president of Whole Foods Market.

Whole Foods already has a location in Tulsa.
