​​HOUSTON - Whole Foods Market Inc. will open its new west Houston store on June 1.

The grocer will relocate its Wilcrest store across the street to a space formerly occupied by Randalls.

The new store, at 11041 Westheimer Rd., will be more than 40,000 sf and will employ approximately 100 to 120 people.

Whole Foods currently occupies 25,663 sf at 11145 Westheimer Rd.

Last year, Trader Joe’s also announced it would open a location just down Westheimer from Whole Foods’ current and future Westheimer locations.

Several other grocery stores—including H-E-B Grocery Co., Sprouts Farmers Market Inc. and Phoenicia Specialty Foods—all have locations in the area.

Meanwhile, Whole Foods has many stores that recently opened—and more planned—in Houston’s hot grocery market.

Whole Foods vacated its Woodway Square shopping center location in 2015 and relocated that store to a new 45,000-sf location, less than a mile away, on Voss Rd.

Other locations Whole Foods opened within the past couple of years include its Post Oak location in the Blvd Place mixed-use development and its first Woodlands location in Hughes Landing.
