Whole Foods Market plans to open a store in Englewood, one of Chicago's most notorious and violence-prone neighborhoods, in 2016. The chain promises to work with the community and make its food affordable and accessible. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office announced Wednesday that Whole Foods Market will open a store at 63rd Street and Halsted in the city's Englewood neighborhood. The high-end grocer will build an 18,000-square-foot store that is expected to bring much-needed jobs to the economically challenged area. Whole Foods is a grocery chain known for its healthy and pricey organic food offerings. The chain's CEO Walter Robb says his company is making the move because Mayor Emanuel asked. Whole Foods did something similar with an inner-city store in Detroit.
