Plans for a Whole Foods in Knoxville are still in the works.
According to a Whole Foods spokeswoman, it most likely will not open until 2014.
Whole Foods operates a chain of high-end and health conscious grocery stores.
It announced a couple years ago that it planned to move into a shopping center at Kingston Pike and Papermill Drive some time this year.
In June, developers were working with the company on "design and leasing issues" and said they did not know when construction would begin.
