Whole Foods Center in Washington Township to Build Second Phase

Whole Foods Market announced that it is now planning Phase II in response to overwhelming retailer demand. The center - at McEwen Road and Miamisburg-Centerville Road in Washington Township - was originally planned with about 65,000 square feet of retail space, including the 45,000-square-foot Whole Foods. That section now has leases or commitments for 100% of the space. Work is now beginning on a 20,000-square-foot Phase II building next to Whole Foods.

Customer Sues Whole Foods over Yogurt Sugar Content

A Brookline, Massachusetts, woman sued Whole Foods Market, Inc. in federal court alleging the labels on the company's plain vanilla Greek yogurt under-report the amount of sugar it contains. Tracey M. Knox is seeking class action status for her complaint against the Austin, Texas, supermarket chain. Knox's complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for Boston, cites "Consumer Reports" research that purported to show that the Whole Foods yogurt had more sugar - in some cases, six times the amount - than its labels stated and that the company failed to address problem after learning of the reports. The complaint notes that Whole Foods blamed any discrepancies on third-part laboratories, but goes on to state: "a more logical interpretation is that defendant recognized a competitive advantage by providing nutritional information that was markedly better than other manufacturers in the marketplace." Knox is seeking remedies including financial compensation and fees for her lawyers. Knox is represented in the case by Erica Mirabella of Mirabella Law in Boston and Matthew E. Miller of Cuneo, Gilbert & Laduca LLP in Washington D.C.
