Residents in Bozeman are excited about a new natural and organic grocery store that is opening soon in Bozeman. Whole Foods will open this summer in the parking lot of the Gallatin Valley Mall.

Last year, a local group called "Bozeman Matters" filed an appeal in an attempt to prevent Whole Foods from opening in Bozeman, but the appeal was denied by Bozeman City Commissioners. Since then, the new Whole Foods location has been under construction and is expected to open this summer.

Bozeman will be home to the first Whole Foods location in Montana, citing its designation by the U.S. Census Bureau as the fastest-growing small city in the United States.

Bozeman’s economic growth in recent years has been remarkable, and since the advent of COVID-19 and its negative impact on more densely-populated urban areas, we are seeing unprecedented in-migration from major urban markets as companies are making it easier for their employees to work remotely.

said Steve Corning, Managing Member of Gallatin Mall Group.

If you're wondering when Whole Foods will open its Bozeman location, we have an answer.  We reached out to Whole Foods Market for more information and received the following response.

Whole Foods Market will be opening a store in Bozeman, however, an opening date has not yet been confirmed. We will be in touch with more information as it becomes available.

said Reema Nimkar, Corporate Communications Specialist for Whole Foods Market.
