The Co-CEO said the 365 stores will look beyond groceries to bring in younger shoppers
Co-CEO Walter Robb told Bloomberg in a Thursday interview that Whole Foods is looking to bring a variety of services to its upcoming, budget-friendly 365 chain to entice young, Millennial consumers. They’re currently looking for outside suppliers and vendors who can set-up shop within the markets, through a program called “Friends of 365.”
Those partnerships could include more standard grocery store fare, such as body-care products. But Robb said they’re also looking to push the envelope with offerings such as record stores or in-store tattoo services.
