JACKSON, Miss. — Whole Foods Market broke ground here Thursday on what will be the retailer’s first store in Mississippi, developers said.
The 31,000-square-foot store at the Highland Village shopping center will open in 2013, according to WS Development, Chestnut Hill, Mass., the project's joint venture partner. Whole Foods, based in Austin, Texas, has 79 stores in development, officials said in a conference call this week.
