Store Location Requests: Whole Foods Market & Trader Joe’s on LI’s East End

Ever since Whole Foods Market opened their first New York City store in Chelsea, I’ve been a loyal customer and have shopped at locations throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. After moving from the city back to Long Island, I was so disappointed to find that there wasn’t a Whole Foods in Suffolk County planned and was determined to get one built in the community. My diligence paid off, because after repeatedly calling the Northeast regional office over a period of ten years and speaking with the head real estate manager in charge, requesting that they come to the area, a Whole Foods Market finally made its way to Lake Grove in Suffolk County.

Since then, I have moved further east to the North Fork and once again find myself without a Whole Foods, a Trader Joe’s or a Wild by Nature, an independent subsidiary of King Kullen Grocery Company. After talking to friends and locals in the area, I discovered that I am not alone in wanting these specialty supermarkets to be built in the area. So once again, I have taken on the task to get a Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s and a Wild by Nature somewhere between Riverhead and Southold.
Also as of fall 2014 in Port Jefferson Station their is needed infrastructure improvements being made to help support a revitalization of a well strategically placed shopping center complex, which will probable be totaly demolished in the years to come. This would be an ideal location as it is directly on New York State Route 347 at the intersection with New York State Route 112.

In order to accomplish this mission, I am asking anyone that lives in or frequents the East End, to help me in this endeavor. If you enjoy and have a need for a natural, organic diet and prefer all natural bath & body care products along with non-toxic natural household cleaners to please call and email Whole Foods Market’s Northeast regional office, Trader Joe’s corporate office and King Kullen/Wild by Nature’s corporate office to request new locations for store fronts to be built on Long Island’s North Fork and South Fork in Suffolk County here in New York State.

And once these stores are built, we must not forget to remind these companies to help support our community by sourcing produce from local farms and products from specialty vendors.
