Whole Foods Expands UK Operations, Opens First Store In Glasgow

July 18, 2011: 09:55 PM EST
Whole Foods Market has opened its first outlet in Glasgow, Scotland, which has a reputation for deep-fried foods. The US-based natural foods retailer plans to keep expanding its operations in the UK despite the expansion costs and operating loss. Whole Foods' promotions have helped the company reduce its losses, although overall, the UK market has proved to be more challenging than the company anticipated. Also, analysts were surprised by the company's choice of Scotland as the site for its first store outside London.
