Been wanting to share this before the New Year but hadn't had the opportunity.
The Englewood branch of Whole Foods, which the upscale grocery chain announced plans for a year and a half ago, is inviting community members to learn about job opportunities at the store on Jan. 6.Also Chicagoist referred to this article via DNA Info. The ig post you see embedded below is a regram from Bruce Montgomery's profile who last year was taking a photographic record of the progress at 63rd & Halsted.
The event, set to start at 6 p.m. at Kennedy King College, at 740 W. 63rd St., in the college's Great Hall, will feature information about jobs at the new grocery store—the first to open on Chicago's South Side—and sample products.
While the Englewood branch is slated to open in September, one hope of the “workforce development conversations” at the event is to get Englewood residents working at existing Whole Foods, so they can transfer back to the Englewood store right when it opens, marketing director Keith Stewart explained.
