Whole Foods Market may be contemplating a move from its current location in Reston’s Plaza America.

The national grocer appears to be moving into the former Best Buy space (1861 Fountain Drive) next to The Container Store in the Spectrum at Reston Town Center, a nearly 46,000-square-foot space, according to a county permit that is currently processing.

The permit shows that building owner utility upgrades for Whole Foods will include upgraded electrical service and water and sanitary lines.

A store employee confirmed that the existing Whole Foods at Plaza America will relocate, but the closure isn’t expected to happen for another year or so.

Lerner Retail, the landlord for The Spectrum, did not immediately return a request for comment from FFXnow.

Back in November, a Whole Foods Market spokesperson told FFXnow that a Reston store was “in development” but declined to provide any further information at the time. The company did not immediately respond to a new request for comment.
