(WICHITA, Kan) — Those who like organic and natural foods have more shopping options than ever in Wichita, now one of the biggest names in the country is coming.
Whole Foods Market announced it plans to build a 30,000 square-foot store on the east side, two other similar food stores opened on the east side in the last year.
As you drive around Wichita you can clearly see there's a new trend. Organic and all-natural grocery stores are the "in" place to shop…but that hasn't always been the case.
"It truly was a challenge, people just weren't into it", says Green Acres president Barb Hoffman.
When the organic grocery store came to town 18 years ago...business was a bit slow...people didn't know what to expect when they came inside. Hoffman says those days are behind them.
