Welcoming Whole Foods to the Community
The Chamber team and nearly 700 other folks turned out for the Family & Friends pre-opening event to celebrate on April 25, 2018.
Whole Foods design paid tribute to North Vancouver’s Shipyard history and showcased local products to be found at the new North Vancouver location. Vancouver-based Half-Baked Cookie Company and Lisa Lou’s Chocolates as well as North Vancouver’s very own Freeyum were just a few of the local products highlighted.
Not only will the Whole Foods North Vancouver location be creating over 160 new jobs they also donated $2,400 toward the work of the Harvest Project; helping people overcome challenges to fully participate in the North Shore community.
Located at 13th and Lonsdale, right across the street from BlueShore Financial, the new building is also home to COWI North America Ltd, Liberty Wine Merchants, Steve Nash Fitness and Shoppers Drug Mart with other businesses yet to come.
