High-end grocer Whole Foods Market has confirmed it will not proceed with planned store openings in Calgary and Edmonton.

The giant U.S.-based natural and organic foods supermarket chain has a total of 12 Canadian outlets: five each in the Vancouver and Toronto areas, one in Ottawa and a new store that opened in Victoria in November.

“We will not be moving forward with the Calgary or Edmonton store locations,” confirmed spokeswoman Beth Krauss.

In September, Whole Foods terminated a lease deal for a store in Calgary’s North Hill Mall.
