365 by Whole Foods Market, the new evolution of grocery stores from Whole Foods Market, announced its third location will open September 14, in Bellevue, Washington. The new store will be located at Bellevue Square (former site of JC Penney) and will also be home to a new Friend of 365 partner, Seattle-based Wild Ginger Kitchen.

"We saw downtown Bellevue as an ideal choice for our third store because it is a rapidly growing community," said Jeff Turnas, president of 365 by Whole Foods Market. "We anticipate that Bellevue, like Silver Lake, will appeal to a broad set of customers who are excited by a new shopping experience, as well as current customers who are familiar with our quality standards and shop at the nearby Whole Foods Market. We think the addition of a high-quality grocery store to The Bellevue Collection will appeal to customers who are looking for a grab-and-go lunch option, as well as those looking to do a full grocery shop."

The downtown Bellevue 365 market will be the third store in the country. The first 365 by Whole Foods Market store opened May 25, 2016 in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles; a second location will open July 14 in Lake Oswego, Oregon. The new downtown Bellevue market will also offer shoppers the convenience of online ordering and delivery through Instacart.

Each 365 by Whole Foods Market location includes at least one Friend of 365, to showcase and support innovative businesses and entrepreneurs. As a Friend of 365, Wild Ginger Kitchen will have an independent fast-casual dining area inside the store. Customers will be able to enjoy a meal in the store or take away a quick, healthy lunch or dinner. Wild Ginger Kitchen is a local favorite culinary destination that creates fast, fresh and flavorful Asian food at affordable prices. The menu will be prepared by the same masterminds behind notable restaurants Wild Ginger and Triple Door, however, Wild Ginger Kitchen will offer a more fast-casual take, with customized bowls and a seasonally inspired menu. Customers can choose from chicken, beef or vegan protein served with rice or noodles, as well as a variety of pickles and fresh toppings.
