A complete overhaul of the commercial district is currently taking place, with exciting new projects underway such as a state of the art LEED-certified residence hall by Bloomfield College (featuring a Barnes & Noble and Starbucks), in addition to the restoration of the Bloomfield Train Station (on the New Jersey Historic Register), and an influx of alluring new high quality establishments, such as Garden State Yoga, Anthony’s Cheesecake, JukGaJee New Thai Jersey Cuisine and Senorita’s Mexican Grill, set the stage as complementary attractions for customers typically wanting a Whole Foods Market experience.
Furthermore, a dense population of customers who prefer to shop at Whole Foods Market, and none other, exist in the surrounding residential areas of Bloomfield’s Watsessing Heights, Montclair’s South End, Nutley, Clifton, Belleville and the entirety of Glen Ridge. While these customers may periodically visit existing Whole Foods establishments many miles away, a new, much more convenient location in Bloomfield Center would firmly cement Whole Foods Market as their exclusive grocer of choice, with many intending to make it a mainstay of their daily activities.
As informed, active and unserved potential customers, the signers of this petition request that Whole Foods Market establish a location in Bloomfield, New Jersey’s Bloomfield Center.
Here are some comments from Bloomfield residents who signed the petition:
Sharon K.: I’d like to see a all known business that will attract people to the area which would in turn increase the town’s revenue.
Dominick C.: We need to turn things around in Bloomfield….. This would be a great start.
Dawn W.: High quality organic options within walking distance, YES please!
David B.: We need more Organic and locally grown produce in this country. Whether it’s Whole foods or an Urban Farm, or a CSA…Locally grown is most important. Whole foods offers more locally grown produce than other grocery stores, and at least they tell you where the produce is coming from.. Someone is going to bring Organic and/or locally grown vegetables and dairy to Bloomfield. It might as well be Whole Foods.
