Whole Foods in Colonie Center Opening June 18

Everyone who has had to deal with the Wegmans-less abyss of the Capital District will soon find solace in the opening of another supermarket.
Sure, we already have Price Chopper, Hannaford, the Albany Honest Weight Co-op, Walmart Super Centers, Shop Rite and Trader Joe's - but we need another food option (read: Wegmans). But since we're not getting a Wegmans, I guess Whole Foods will suffice.
The new market, located in Colonie Center in the corner closest to the intersection of Wolf and Central, will open it's doors officially at 9 a.m. on Wednesday (June 18). The first 200 customers will receive a free canvas tote.
The 32,000 square foot store will also feature local products from places like Bilinski Sausage in Cohoes and Xs to Os Vegan Bakery in Troy.
Its hours will be daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

You can read more here, in Lauren Halligan's story.
