Whole Foods To Clear the Hole in Gowanus

Hopes fading for Brooklyn’s very own Whole Foods on the banks of the Gowanus Canal

Prospects are dimming for a Whole Foods on the banks of the Gowanus Canal.

Now, even company officials concede they have no clue if they’ll ever build a store along the polluted waterway.

On again, off again, on again, off again.

It seems wholly unlikely that Brooklyn residents are going to see their very own Whole Foods any time soon, even if the location does get cleaned up. Regardless, Whole Foods have committed to a three month timetable to clean the site; once that’s done, they’ll reassess the chances of opening a store there.
