RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – An upscale grocery chain with one store in the region has toured a property on Broad Street for a possible second Richmond location.

Shane Parr of Sauer Properties — a real estate development firm associated with the spice company C.F. Sauer — confirmed that Whole Foods is looking at retail space, including at the former Virginia Department of Taxation building, which Sauer Properties bought this year.

“We’re in the very early stages with the Department of Taxation building,” Parr said. “But we’re marketing it to a number of big retailers, and Whole Foods is one of them.”

Parr said a representative from Whole Foods has toured the site. Whole Foods, which did not return several calls and emails seeking comment, has one store in Richmond at Short Pump.
