Whole Foods Market opens their brand new Altamonte Springs store this Wednesday, January 20, 2016 – becoming Orlando’s third location. The 40,000-square-foot store, located in the Renaissance Centre at 305 East Altamonte Drive, joins its Central Florida sister locations in Winter Park and Phillips Crossing.

The store’s façade will “mimic Central Florida’s landscape, featuring an eclectic mix of unique and reclaimed materials inspired by the Sunshine State’s orange groves.”

Here are a few photos for an inside look at the new store:
