The press release

AUSTIN, Texas - July 10, 2003. Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFMI), the world's largest natural and organic foods supermarket, today celebrated progress on its new landmark store and world headquarters in downtown Austin. Whole Foods Market's executives and Austin team members joined city officials—including Mayor Will Wynn and City Council Member Betty Dunkerley, and community friends for a celebration where a rendering of the project, located on the block between Fifth and Sixth Streets and Bowie Street and Lamar Boulevard, was unveiled. The "ground digging" event originally planned for June was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

To be completed in early 2005, the 80,000 square foot store will be Whole Foods Market's largest store to date and will showcase exciting new features as yet to be seen in the retail world. Austin residents will also enjoy a community and education center suitable for meetings and cooking demonstrations, a 25,000 square-foot public roof garden and plaza area for eating and entertainment, as well as three-levels of underground parking with escalators equipped to carry grocery carts from the parking garage to the store.

. . .

The new building also will include Whole Foods Market's new world headquarters, a six-story, 200,000 square foot office tower above the market that eventually will provide office space for as many as 700 Team Members. The new space will bring together the national offices and the Southwest Regional offices.
