The Cupertino Whole Foods store moved to a spanking new location that’s about one billion times its former self across the street of its old location. So we paid a visit on Wednesday to check out the new location (after a failed attempt on Sunday due to overwhelming support of the new store by fellow Whole Foods shoppers). The parking was insane because there were just so many people there. Now Whole Foods is the new Safeway, Krogers and Publix. Except they carry more organic stuff.
One thing that surprised me (and made me doubt the whole “Whole Foods” philosophy) is the fact that they carry that Fiji bottled water that traveled a gazillion miles all the way across the ocean. I mean, if they were so into this “environment” and “local” thing, wouldn’t they have left out Fiji brand water altogether? WTF? Talk about being hypocritical…
Speaking of hypocritical, we picked up a bottle of Wholezyme and some groceries at Whole Foods anyway. But the sheer size of the new store made me feel a little dizzy — or maybe it was the sheer number of people in the store at the time. On the upside, the store does offer FREE Wifi!
Still no luck in Steve Jobs sighting though*. I can’t really leave California until I’ve seen him at least once, even if it’s from a distance… But then again, at least I’ve already seen the other Steve in person.
* He’s been seen frequenting Whole Foods store in Cupertino.
