Vital Grocery Update: Whole Foods Is Open in Union Square

Gothamist brings word that Whole Foods Union Square is up and running on power provided by emergency generators, though it might close early so that staffers can make it home safely. The store is also open in Tribeca, though cash-only, and the company delivered generators to the Bowery location this afternoon with an eye towards opening tomorrow morning.

The power is supposed to come back on in Manhattan by Saturday, but you can expect the list of where to buy provisions to grow before then, as more and more store owners figure out how to acquire generators. A few blocks down from Whole Foods Bowery, for example, a generator-powered Russ & Daughters is keeping the Lower East Side stocked with smoked fish.
