AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) — Officials in the Town of Amherst say Friday will mark the day that a long-planned Whole Foods store in the northtowns clears its last hurdle.
Whole Foods officials are expected to be issued their building permit on Friday, clearing the way for construction to begin in the summer or early fall. The plan to build the popular grocery chain has been tossed around since May of 2014, when the company signed a lease.
The lease is was signed at the Northtown Plaza site in Amherst on Sheridan Drive.
It’s not yet known when officials expect to officially open the store.
