The company gave USA TODAY a behind-the-scenes look at the new Brooklyn store that features long aisles, a refrigerated cooler for fresh produce and a large freezer. Akin to a fulfillment center.

The new Brooklyn store is different from Whole Foods temporary online-only stores, which were converted to help meet COVID-19 demand. The locations, which included the Bryant Park store in New York City, stores in Chicago, Austin, Texas and Baltimore, have since converted back.

Last week, Amazon soft-launched its first Amazon Fresh supermarket in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills with a shopping cart that tallies up items as it enters the basket and enables instant checkout, and Alexa stations throughout the store you can ask questions.

Grocery delivery, which previously was a convenience for busy families, is now seen as a necessity by anyone concerned about contracting COVID-19.

Is it possible Whole Foods will build additional online-only stores?

"We're always evaluating ways to increase grocery delivery,” Wescoe said. “Delivery is here to stay. People like options and this is an option that they really love.”
