Cary, NC — Temperatures were in the low 40’s when a crowd gathered to celebrate Whole Foods Cary’s recent expansion and renovation at Waverly Place on Wednesday March 5, 2014.
Whole Foods Renovation
Whole Foods Market has been the anchor at Waverly since 1999 and is set for a multi-million dollar interior renovation. RP Realty, based in California, plans to do a multi-million dollar exterior renovation that includes a new facade and updated parking lot.
“We are so thrilled to extend the Whole Foods Market lease. They are an integral part of Waverly Place and are a strong anchor to making the center successful,” says Jenn Olevitch, Director of Leasing for RP Realty Partners.
2 Boutiques to Open
In addition to the Whole Foods Market renewal, Olevitch has also signed Gigi’s Boutique and Finley’s Boutique as tenants at Waverly.
Relocating from across the street at Crescent Commons, Gigi’s Boutique offers affordable fashions for everyday lifestyles. Finley’s Boutique will offer women’s fashions from more notable brands.
Both stores are family owned by Cheryl Reinert. They are Waverly’s first clothing boutiques since its renovation. Both boutiques are slated to open in late summer. Reinert has been in business since 2008 with Gigi’s Boutique, naming both stores after her oldest granddaughters.
“In addition to these two new boutiques we are currently in negotiations with several more specialty retailers and restaurants and have a great deal of momentum with getting the unique and diverse mix of restaurants and retailers that is setting Waverly Place apart from other centers in our market” said Olevitch.
Newly opened stores include Green Pea Baby, relocating from Apex and Barberito’s Southwestern Grille & Cantina. In August, bothWhisk~Kitchenware & Cooking Classes and Esteem Me Montessori & Creative Play are set to open.

Events at Waverly
Waverly Place has kicked off their summer season with their signature events including the Waverly Farmers Market, Wind Down Wednesdays, plein air painting and more.
Waverly Place’s signature events have doubled their attendance this year due in large part to the growing interest in both the location and new tenants.
