Eugene will soon be home to a Whole Foods Market. The Austin-based company made the announcement Wednesday during its quarterly earnings call.
The 33,000 square foot store will be located on the corner of East Broadway and High Street in downtown Eugene. That's the same spot Whole Foods wanted to build a store several years ago but the deal didn't work out.
The store is set to open in the first half of 2016. The company says this will bring an estimated 150 new jobs to the area. It will be the 9th Whole Foods in Oregon.
