Whole Foods is Coming to Jersey City–or Mean April Fool’s Joke


As long as this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke of some sort, then Whole Foods is coming to Jersey City. The sign looks pretty convincing, but it was posted on April 1st. If this is legit (we’re working on confirming now), then this is a huge win for the Powerhouse Arts District and for the city of Jersey City. Many people have been asking for Whole Foods (and Trader Joe’s) to set up shop here for a while now. Just do a search on Twitter for “Jersey City Whole Foods” and you’ll find that there are multiple tweets asking Whole Foods to come here–there’s even a petition to get them to build. Hopefully, this is the real thing. We’ll have an update for you as soon as we find out.
