Whole Foods Germantown opens on Tuesday, August 18th. Guests who arrive between 8 and 8:30 a.m. can spin the prize wheel. A bread breaking — Whole Foods' version of a ribbon cutting — will happen at around 8:45 a.m., with doors opening at 9 a.m.
The store is open today (Saturday) through 5 p.m. for tours, starting every 15 minutes. It's $5 for the tour, with all the money going to the Wolf River Conservancy and the Mid-South Food Bank.
Among the store's features is a cool-looking charcuterie cave, an upstairs loft, the La Creperie, and Kei Jei Kitchens.
La Creperie offers both sweet and savory crepes, including a crepe with fried chicken and pimento cheese. Whole Foods Germantown will also have beignets and donuts. One of the featured donuts is cotton candy (!).
Ramen bowl from Kei Jei Kitchen
Especially exciting is Kei Jei Kitchen, which serves Japanese/Korean fusion. There are sushi burritos, steam bao sliders, and ramen bowls.
