On their website it says this:



What NWI locations would meet, or come close to, these criteria? Hammond/Highland, or somewhere down US41? I don't think any Porter County locations would meet the 200,000 people requirement. Portage might, maybe, because Gary is close.

Whole Foods is one of the big reasons I make a special monthly trip in to Chicago (and spend money there instead of in Indiana). I think it would probably take some work by NWI mayors to get Whole Foods to consider this area, but where would it work?
My name is Donita Covington. I am writing this because I own 2 nice commercial buidings downtown Elwood, IN. I feel the Lord has spoke to me and had me to look up whole foods because i have a great interest in them and I wish we could put a store in Ewood, IN.


I feel the downtown location of the two historical buildings would be excellent. The address is 112 and 114 S. Anderson St. Elwood, IN. There is an alley on the side of one buidling where a drive thru could be established. Also the buildings are well kept with one side having 3 stories. These buildings are a must see opportunity.

Upon reading the conditions required for this I feel Elwood Indiana is a good central location and ironicaly enough Elwood IN is the Heart of Hoosierland. Which would be a great advertising tool and is centrally located from Marion, Alexandria, Anderson, Tipton, Windfall, Noblesvile, Muncie, etc.

Three states highways run through and beside Elwood. St rd 28 and St. rd. 13 and st. rd. 37.

I ask please check this out. I really feel good about it. Our city is growing fast now. We have new factory moving here and they just built an oRielys auto parts. They are paving the state highwys all around us and Noblesville and Fishers are growing our direction fast.

Thank you for your time and condsideration.
Again my name is Donita Covington and my ph. is 765.810.6421. Please check this out. I would be more than happy to show them at any time.

Blessings.

I just found an Elwood IN on google maps, northwest of Muncie.
But Donita, I don't think anyone who can help you is going to see your post here.

A Whole Foods did open in 2013 in Mishawaka, Indiana.

^^^Sorry but with a population under 9000 - it wouldn't fit WF's criteria.
