AUSTIN -- The new Whole Foods store at The Domain opens Wednesday, but hundreds of people got a sneak peek Monday night.

The preview party was a fundraiser for KUT, Austin's public radio station.

The store near Mopac Expressway and Braker Lane is the fifth Whole Foods store in Austin.

It features an outdoor beer garden with a stage for live music, a children's play area and 11 seating areas to relax and enjoy a quick meal.

"It's actually a really great bike route from our house, and we're going to get to ride our bikes here," said shopper Vanessa Martin. "We're going to get to come here for dinners every weeknight. We just couldn't be happier."

The new store will bring 200 new jobs to Austin.

The Gateway Whole Foods store near Highway 183 and Loop 360 shut down on Monday for renovations. It's expected to reopen in mid-February.
