Whole Foods

Whole Food
Somewhere out west.

Whole Foods have been looking into coming to CNY.  With rival Trader Joes now open in DeWitt, they may up the ante now so here's where "Whole Pay Cheque" (as some may call them) should consider if not downtown Syracuse:

Syracuse, NY 5 (former Sams Club)
deWitt, NY 5 (former Dicks who moved into nearby kmart across from TJs, Michaels or JCPenney)
Baldwinsville (former Tri-County Mall)
Liverpool, Seneca Mall, Co Rt 57 (former Price Chopper)
Ithaca, NY 13/34 (former kmart)
New Hartford, NY 5A (former Price Chopper or kmart)
Auburn (former P&C)
Fulton, NY 481 (former kmart)
Clay, NY 31 & 481 (former Macys)
Oswego, NY 104 (TBD)
Irondequoit, Medley Centre, NY 104 (mostly empty mall)
Brighton (also a Rochester suburb though this may be more official)
Cortland, Riverside Mall, NY 13 and I-81 (former flea market but I also want Planet Fitness and Massage Envy there)
North Syracuse, US 11 and I-81 (former Staples, Michaels, Media Play or TJ Maxx) or US 11 and West Taft Road (former Maines, Peters or Williams)
Canandaigua, US 20 & NY 5
Geneva, down the road from above

UPDATE: amazons purchase may move them to open more stores.

Stewarts Shops

Stewart's Shop, Fort Edward NY
Fort Edward location.
With the new Stewarts Shops store in Liverpool now open for business there are a number of spots they could open as their footprint in CNY is limited at best compared to the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys.  Here's where they could go since Sen Schumer is trying to get closed stations to reopen:

Chittenango, NY 5/13 (former Sunrise)
Marcellus, NY 174 (former AOK)
Onondaga Hill, outgoing Byrne Dairy once they can open up the road (NY 175)
deWitt, NY 5*
Elbridge, NY 5
McKownville (Albany), US 20
East Syracuse (Carrier Circle), NY 298 & 635 (former Sunoco)
North Syracuse (Bear & Buckley Roads opened mid-late 2016)
Cicero, US 11*
Baldwinsville, NY 31 & 370
Canastota, NY 13 (former Sunoco/ExpressMart)
Syracuse (Thompson Road), NY 635 between former Tim Hortons and JPW Riggers
Syracuse (Eastwood, north [US 11] and south side) - former 7-Eleven
Fulton, NY 3 (former Davidson/Fred Raynor/Reymore Ford)

*Former Mobil.
