Until Whole Foods arrives, shopaholics can stay busy buying trendy Dutch clothing.

Construction is coming along nicely at 240-242 Bedford Ave., the Williamsburg building that will house a 50,000-square-foot Whole Foods. A sign hanging on the glass façade near the corner of N. 4th Street says the gourmet grocer will open in late spring 2016.

Three fashion retailers recently opened their doors in the 150,000-square-foot building the Cayre family’s firm, Midtown Equities, is developing. They’re located in the N. 4th and Berry streets corner of the building, which is clad in dark-red brick.

Two are Amsterdam-based retailers: Upscale clothier Scotch & Soda, whose storefront’s address is 126 N. 4th St., and powerhouse blue-jeans maker G-Star Raw at 118 N. 4th St.

The third recently opened retailer is Levi’s. The iconic American blue jeans are being sold at 120 N. 4th St.
