Whole Foods Bowery Unveils its New Bakery Entrance
Ten years later, the once-controversial Whole Foods Bowery is trying to spruce things up a bit. After all, it’s (ironically) located in a bland building deemed bad for our collective mental health. You’ve probably seen that much of the first floor is an active construction zone.
The new bakery, under renovations since early February, debuted earlier this week in the store’s northwest corner. Customers can once again enter the supermarket via the original entrance, only this time, flanked by glass cases of baked goods. And even some limited stool seating by the windows.
Other changes inside the Whole Foods include a remodeled prepared foods section.
This place remains a microcosm of the Lower East Side, though. The trendy shop here, while the downtrodden lurk on the second floor (Chrystie Street facade), a trend that the New York Post got bent out of shape about back in January.
