HONOLULU (KHNL) - Whole Foods Market celebrated the start of construction at its Maui location Wednesday with a traditional Hawaiian blessing.

The ceremony, held at Whole Foods Market's new 26,366 square foot store at Maui Mall, was presided over by Kahu Les Kuloloio, and attended by Whole Foods Market, Alexander & Baldwin and Maui Mall representatives, community leaders, and Maui Mall tenants.

Work on the new store is scheduled to continue through next year, with a grand opening scheduled for 2010.

"We look forward to becoming a part of the Maui community and providing residents with natural and organic products and the high level of excellence for which our brand is known," said Patrick Bradley, Whole Foods Market regional president.

Whole Foods Market recently welcomed its first Hawaii store at Kahala Mall in September.

The company currently has four stores planned for Hawaii, including locations at Kahala Mall, Maui Mall, Ward Village and Kailua.
