Whole Foods in Orland Park has opened.

The new 27,500 square-foot grocery store opened with a bread-breaking ceremony outside the main entrance Friday morning, where hundreds of people waited for the doors to open.

With a DJ playing songs, Whole Foods staff and Orland Park officials tore pieces off a large braided loaf of bread before opening the doors to the new store.

Crowds continued to visit and shop well into Friday night.
