Wyomissing Welcomes New Kimberton Whole Foods Location
Natural grocery store, Kimberton Whole Foods, opened its seventh location in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. The store, which opened its doors at Eighth and Hill avenues in The Knitting Mills complex, carries organic produce, local meats, and includes a specialty department. In addition to a full-service grocery store, the location also features a café serving freshly made juices, smoothies and coffee drinks, sandwiches, salads, hot soups, sushi, grab-and-go-meals, and other items.
Known for its commitment to benefiting the communities in which its stores are located, Kimberton Whole Foods will contribute excess inventory to New Journey Community Outreach, a non-profit located in Reading, Pennsylvania that offers a daily soup kitchen and weekly food pantry, as part of its food donation program. Kimberton works with Fiorenza’s Food for Friends, a Downingtown, Pennsylvania -based organization that links food service companies with local agencies to provide an alternative to discarding surplus food. Kimberton Whole Foods also runs a Rounding Up at the Register program that allows customers to contribute to local nonprofits in their communities by rounding up cash register totals to the nearest dollar and matching all customer donations. Since launching the program in 2020, more than $500,000 has been raised. Each store designates a different nonprofit to benefit for every month. Money raised at the Wyomissing store will benefit Helping Harvest in November and Opportunity House in December.
Founded in 1986 by Terry and Pat Brett as a small farm store, Kimberton is now a multi-generational family business and continues to grow in the greater Philadelphia area.
