Whole Foods sets June opening for Detroit store

DETROIT (AP) -- Whole Foods Markets Inc. plans to open its new store in Detroit's Midtown neighborhood this spring.

The Austin, Texas-based natural grocery store chain announced Friday it plans to open the supermarket on June 5 with about 75 employees.

Whole Foods says details about job openings will be posted online April 2.

Whole Foods will help fill a grocery void in the area. Detroiters have long complained about not having enough places to buy fresh fruit, vegetables and produce.

A groundbreaking for the store was held last year.
