The 43,916-square-foot store, which has been in development since 2021, anchors the newly renovated Huntington Shopper Center, currently undergoing a $40 million upgrade. See a sneak peek below.

Whole Foods representatives have highlighted that the new store will showcase 2,000 locally sourced items from the Northeastern region, curated by John Lawson, a forager for Local & Emerging Brands at Whole Foods Market.

At the opening, the first 300 customers in line will receive an exclusive Huntington Station tote bag and a Secret Saver coupon, featuring discounts of up to $100.

The Austin, Texas-based grocery chain also plans to support the local community through partnerships with local suppliers and nonprofits, including Helping Hands Rescue Mission, Long Island Cares, and Island Harvest. Additionally, Whole Foods will make a donation to We All We Got, Inc. during the grand opening.

Other Whole Foods locations on Long Island include Manhasset, Garden City, Jericho, Massapequa Park, Commack, and Lake Grove. Another location is also underway in Holbrook at the former SunVet Mall site off Sunrise Highway, currently being redeveloped by Regency Centers. Read about that location below.
