Whole Foods Could Open Before Start of Summer

Construction at the store located at La Paz and Alicia Parkway is moving along and becoming more apparent each day.

It is perhaps one of the most anticipated stores to come to Laguna Niguel in years.

Construction at Whole Foods Market is progressing smoothly and could be open before the start of summer, according to store officials.

"Behind the scenes we are assembling our store leadership, department team leaders and team members," said team member Maria Mugica.

In addition, crews are busy working on the front facade of the building and they have recently added steel beams and archways to its front. Interior work also continues at the store that was once a Tall Mouse craft store.

The market already has its team leader in place, Norm Shaughnessy, 50, who Patch wrote about in December.

Earlier this month Fresh & Easy opened its doors at the corner of Golden Lantern and Crown Valley Parkway.

We have perfect spot in Laguna Hills on El Toro and Carlotta where the former Circuit City was. We have lots of seniors and health conscious residents and we love WHOLE FOODS! So how about considering another. The building is being refurbished.

That building is already going to be a furniture store.

Weren't they planning on opening next month? There was something about a march opening.
