Kim Willett can barely wait until Whole Foods Market moves into the space once occupied by Johnnie’s Foodmaster in a strip mall in Weymouth on Route 18 – so she’ll have somewhere to shop again near her home and work.
Johnnie’s closed in mid-November, and Whole Foods is scheduled to open in the renovated 40,000-square-foot location on July 10.
“People are looking forward to Whole Foods,” Willett, who lives nearby, said as she waited on customers at the Hallmark shop in the Pleasant Street Plaza last week. “They just want something here. They all miss Johnnie’s; it was so convenient. There are a lot of apartment and condo complexes [around here] and a lot of elderly people who don’t drive.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
