Whole Foods Confirms Oklahoma City Lease

What a difference eight months makes:
Whole Foods confirmed Wednesday the chain has a signed lease to open a store in Oklahoma City.

The confirmation was provided through the company's marketing department via Twitter in response to a question by The Oklahoman regarding rumors that have been ongoing for the past two years.

Whole Foods is one of the nation's leading grocery chains that specializes in natural and organic goods and operates more than 270 stores in North America and the United Kingdom.

The chain has only one store in Oklahoma — a former Wild Oats store in Tulsa acquired as part an acquisition in 2007.

I call that good news. The first, and only, Whole Foods I've been in was in Orlando while on vacation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We bought Cuban food to eat back in our room and it was almost as good as Grandpop Pete's. I'm looking forward to Whole Foods coming here and spending a ton of money on stuff I can get cheaper that tastes just as good.
