The massive 74,000 square-foot grocer, which will occupy the historic Admiral's Row in Brooklyn Navy Yard, will be larger than the Whole Foods in Williamsburg and will feature a cafe on the second floor serving food along with wine, beer and spirits. It will have seating for 100 guests.
A store manager has been hired and a hiring office has opened with the intent of filling 500 open jobs the new location will create by February. The positions include entry-level management, customer service, overnight grocery, and culinary roles.
Interested applicants can apply either online or via telephone.
