    Glad to see they’ll be proceeding with the opening despite the acquisition. It should be interesting to see how the brands and quality compare to their full Whole Foods Market stores. I’m curious if they’ll have a traditional meat and fish counter or will it all be prepackaged to reduce labor like how most lower market stores do it.

      It’s all pre-packaged. My brother in LA lives right near one. The idea is to make everything have a price and barcode so you don’t need to weigh. Pretty sure very little is weighed during checkout. Even the hot and cold bars are priced based on the size of the container, not the weight of what you get.

        Interesting and a bummer, but not much of a surprise. Will probably check it out once, but I don’t see myself shopping there regularly.

    My family has taken the bait and swallowed the hook outright as I believe we need to get something from everyone as not everyone has everything we want. Will have to add 365 to Safeway, Sprouts, Trader Joes, Lonardi’s and Whole Foods of course. Almost forgot Target & a few of the independent produce markets in the area.

      I can definitely see needing to hit more than one store if you mainly shop Trader Joes and Sprouts and to a lesser extent Whole Foods as those stores push their own brands so strongly and don’t carry some major ones (Coke, etc.) however I could get everything I need from Lunardi’s or Safeway. If I had to add anything, it would probably be from the Mexican or Asian markets.
