If you say it's wanted and needed ... the Whole Foods Co-op will build it ... and they will come.
It wasn't a hasty process; the Co-op invested in a lot of research and conversation with the community beforehand, but the new 12,500-square-foot building is open, and providing fresh healthy food to an area of town once considered a "food desert."
The new building is located right across the street from Denfeld High School. Is general manager Sharon Murphy worried about high school kids hanging around? Actually, she says, that would be great!
