BROOKLINE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Whole Foods Market across Saint Mary's Street Station in Brookline is closing its doors for good on Friday, May 6.
The store on Beacon Street is one of six announced to be shuttered nationwide, a decision that came after Whole Foods took performance and growth potential evaluations, according to Bloomberg.
WBZ's James Rojas spoke to frequent shoppers outside the Brookline location.
"It's just instant- gone. It's a shame. People here use smaller baskets so it's just 'onesies' and 'twosies,' it's not a weeks' worth of stuff, the layout doesn't lend itself to wide carts, so maybe they could have done it differently," said a customer named Beth.
After Friday, the closest Whole Foods locations to Brookline will be the stores in Brighton on Washington Street, Jamaica Plain on Centre Street, and in the Back Bay on Westland Avenue.
