BRIDGEWATER, NJ — Whole Foods, in the new Chimney Rock Plaza in Bridgewater, is officially opening its doors March 23.

It was originally scheduled to open March 21, but the opening was delayed because of the predicted nor'easter.

The Bridgewater location is the first Whole Foods in Somerset County.

The 49,000-square-foot store is featuring all of its special products with lots of local inspirations, and several new offerings including Plant & Plate, a new lifestyle shop dedicated to beauty, garden and home goods rooted in nature.

The shop also features a Juice Press juice shop and Bridgewater Coffee and Kitchen, an all day-cafe.

“People are psyched about the opening,” said Tina Clabbers Feigley, of Whole Foods Market. “This is an underserved area for us, and the town is growing in a huge way. We are so specific in what we want to do, and we do well in anything that sets us apart.”
