Sears conversion to Whole Foods begins in Greensboro

Greensboro's Whole Foods Market, which is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2012, has already began to take shape. The store will occupy 34,000 square feet in the Sears building at Friendly Center while Sears is downsizing its footprint from approximately 164,000 square feet to 130,000 square feet. These photos display the Friendly Avenue entrance to Sears, which will become transformed into Whole Foods' main entrance.

The two images below show Sears' Pembroke Road entrance, which will serve as their main entrance. In the picture immediately below, upon entering the doors the wall on the left will be the partition between Sears and Whole Foods Market.

A sad day, even though Whole Foods coming to town will enhance Friendly Center's image. I have a feeling there won't be a Sears here in a few years.

Do you think Sears will not have a store in Greensboro city limits or relocate elsewhere?

I think there is a chance they'd relocate to the Kmart property on Wendover.
