Bellevue’s 365 by Whole Foods closes

Bellevue Square’s 365 by Whole Foods Market recently announced its closure.

A representative of Whole Foods Market said the decision was made by company leadership before the Amazon merger. It came after a careful evaluation of the store’s performance, she said.

“We will continue to serve the Bellevue community with our neighboring Whole Foods Market store and are offering all team members who qualify for positions at other locations,” Betsy Harden, Whole Foods spokeswoman, said. “We remain committed to the 365 format and will continue to sign new leases and open stores in a variety of markets.”

Whole Foods currently has stores under development in Kirkland, and Seattle’s Capitol Hill and West Seattle neighborhoods.

The 365 by Whole Foods was developed as a way to shop for fresh groceries 365 days of the year.
