Today, the much talked about Whole Foods Schererville finally opened! We had the chance to make it out to their Grand Opening event and were blown away by the crowd of over 1,000 people that showed up to welcome them into The Region and see what they had “in store” for us. Check out our photo gallery below to see all of the images we took on our walk through. The Whole Foods Schererville location had a huge selection of different products.
Whole Foods Schererville Grand Opening
The Grand Opening kicked off with some great speeches by some of the store owners and team leaders which all showed their excitement to be a part of the community in Schererville. A few speeches in, we were even surprised by one of the people proposing to their girlfriend, who he met 5 years ago at a Whole Foods. All in all, it was a great introduction to their location. Once speeches were over, the doors opened and the first 615 people who made it through were given gift cards ranging from $5 to $500. Less than 30 minutes later, Whole Foods announced they had found their random $500 winner!
With a crowd of over 1,000 people, it took a bit to work our way in, but overall, everyone was very respectable. While in line, Whole Foods Schererville team members were handing out free samples. When we made it in the doors, we were blown away by how much there was to offer. Coffee bar, house cured-smoked meats, gourmet hot dogs, Neapolitan style pizzas, a juice AND coffee bar, the “beauty bar”, and actual bar (which had 12 Three Floyds beers on tap!), and much more.
