Fremont Lands a Whole Foods



    Fremont Lands a Whole Foods
    Whole Foods will open a store in Fremont in 2013.

    It only took 10 years but Fremont is putting itself on the organic map -- albeit a price one.

    The East Bay city will land its first Whole Foods store after a decade of trying, according to the Oakland Tribune.

    The store will be built on a vacant lot on the corner of Paseo Padre Parkway and Mowry Avenue. It will be a 38,000-square-foot store that will employ 200 employees.

    Whole Foods already has 26 stores in the Bay Area, with five in the East Bay. The store is expected to open in 2013.
