Whole Foods opened in Englewood in 2016, providing options for healthy food and luring other retailers to sign leases in the area. But Friday, the chain announced they were closing the Englewood store as well as a location near DePaul University as part of a national cost-saving initiative.
Reset checks in with local leaders and a local vendor who sold products at the store to hear their reactions and what they want to see open next.
GUESTS: Iris Patterson, founder of Iris Botanicals
