ATTENTION KALE LOVERS: The mothership has finally spawned another store, and It’s in the fun-filled shopping Mecca that is the Domain. That’s right, now you can get clothes, fancy purses, Apple stuff (or even an apartment!) and beloved and coveted Whole Foods goodies all in the same place.


Head to the Domain on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 7:30 am for an all-day celebration at the Whole Foods Market Domain Grand Opening. What? 7:30 am is too late for you? No worries! The festivities start as early at 6:30 am with foodie trivia and prizes, then entertainment by Anderson High School Jazz Band and Drum Core. You’ll want to be one of the first 500 lucky attendees there early enough to score a free, limited edition Austin Better Bag.

The fun and frolic will continue throughout the day with live music, free continental breakfast and great deals following the “official” kickoff with the bread-breaking ceremony at 7:30 am. No matter what time you swing by, there’s bound to be something going on. So, rest up, get ready and plan to enjoy the day. And feel good about it too – one percent of all sales will be donated to the JCC (Jewish Community Center). The rundown of the day’s events are as follows:
