Whole Foods Market announced Wednesday that it will build a 30,000 square-foot store at Jackson's Highland Village shopping center.
The store will open sometime next year, according to Whole Foods spokeswoman Darrah Horgan. She did not specify where in Highland Village it would be located, but it will be a new facility from the ground up.
Horgan said it would create about 80 to 120 new jobs.
Highland Village management declined to comment.
Whole Foods is an upscale grocery-store chain based in Austin, Texas. This will be its first store in Mississippi.
