Whole Foods Market Coming! (to Mishawaka, IN)
I had heard through the grapevine that Whole Foods is coming to the Michiana but officially saw it on the news today. Honestly, I'm pretty thrilled even though I recognize there are some cons. The Michiana area has been needing a grocery store like this as there is nothing like this. It drives me nuts that when I tell people I try to purchase organic produce, dairy, and meats, it is assumed I'm wasting my money paying on something premium. Needless to say, organic is seen as a "specialty" item seen in the elite grocery stores and only those who can afford to pay more.
Bringing Whole Foods here is going to be great opportunity for the community. It's going to build our "sustainable" living community up and offer a much wider selection of goods where people had to drive to Chicago or Indianapolis to find. Perhaps it will do so well that other businesses will want to come here too.
Do you have a Whole Foods Market in your area? What's been your experience with it?
