Whole Foods Adding Beer

The under construction Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting has a liquor license application at the site and is expected to carry beer. We can only hope there will be  a growler filling station like this New York city Whole Foods.

It will be the first Whole Foods in Pennsylvania with a liquor license and is aiming for an early 2010 opening.

    I cannot wait for this WFM to open. The only semi-decent WFM in Philly is on South Street and that’s too far for me to grocery shop (I live in Manayunk/Roxborough) so I haul out to the one in Wynnewood which has the worst store design ever. Both stores are really small compared to other great WFM’s I’ve been to. I’ve seen the building for the one at Plymouth Meeting. It’s impressive and large.

    Now the real question is whether or not they will be able to sell individual beers, mix and match packs and 6-packs or if you have to buy the whole damn case.

    • According to this Times Herald article the market will be able to sell single servings in its restaurants and up to two six-packs to go.

    so the question is, will these be priced at deli/bar carryout rates… $8 for a six-pack of lager. If so, good luck with that, there are going to be lots of disappointed customers. And they better take a lesson from the Foodery if they want it to work.

    Going off what they let Wegman’s do, you can buy sixers, twelve packs and large single beers (the selection is west chester is good). The Wegman’s also does specials tied with their value card. They had victory products on sale a few weeks ago, I think ~$7 for six packs.
