Whole Foods Market, a natural foods supermarket based out of Austin, Texas, will open its first Cape Cod location in the former Borders Bookstore location in Hyannis.
The company plans to hire 175 employees and open the store in the winter of 2013, according to a press release.
President of the company’s North Atlantic region, Laura Derba, said over the years they have had many requests to bring a store to the Cape.
“We are pleased to be joining a community that is so well loved by residents and vacationers alike,” Derba said in a statement.
Whole Foods Market employs more than 69,000 people and has been ranked as the “100 Best Companies to Work For” in the country by Fortune magazine for 15 consecutive years.
