Whole Foods is closing nine stores while putting the brakes on plans to open 12-hundred plus stores. The upscale grocery store made the announcement Wednesday, which includes the Whole Foods in Davis. That store, along with 8 others will be closed as part of a “more thoughtful growth strategy.” The news comes after Whole Foods announced it would be cancelling its plan to put a location in Midtown. The Company’s CEO John Mackey says this is part of a grand plan to keep the company more financially disciplined than it has been in the past. Whole Foods will continue to operate locations in Folsom, Roseville and Arden Arcade. There is no word when the Davis location will close or who will take over the space.
