Workers are putting the finishing touches on the new Whole Foods store in Shreveport. The store is set to open on the morning of November 16th.

I had a chance to take a tour of the store as the final prep work is complete. The 39 thousand square foot store will host a preview party from 4-7pm Monday night. All local residents are invited to come out and get a look at the new store and do a little shopping.

Whole Foods is located at 70th and Fern. 147 people have been hired to staff the store. More than 3000 people applied for the jobs. This is the 7th Whole Foods store in Louisiana, but the first one in North Louisiana.
