Haha at whole food making other grocery stores more competitive! They are called whole paycheck for a reason! Btw the quarry whole foods is a perfect example for a store from 1998. It's a testament to how busy the store is
That they haven't been able to update it since then.

I actually prefer the size of the Quarry store. I do about 90% of my shopping there, with occasional trips to CM for the few things I need that WF doesn't carry. I don't like gargantuan stores, and I don't really buy prepared foods, so it works well for me.

It really looked like work had just stopped on it for a while (late spring, early summer)...no construction vehicles parked around it, etc. (I am at the next door Target a LOT).

Suddenly, about a month ago, work resumed in a flurry of activity. They have removed many of the obstructing signs covering the construction fence, and added a "coming soon" banner.

FWIW, I am not a Whole Foods fan, but I used to be a Bread and Circus fan (Boston). They have now swallowed up all of the regional chains like that. But I will probably be in there simply due to proximity.

September 18? Yay! I can't wait! The new one is only 5 minutes from my home, as opposed to the 25 or so to get to AQ.

WF is expensive, no doubt about that, but I love to go there as a treat to myself every month or so. I have been on a weight loss program for some time now and I love their organic and local produce and their seafood.

Now if only Trader Joe's would build a store closer to me..

Awesome now know the time for opening. Looks like they will hire 150 people to staff the store as well. I didn't realize that the Quarry store opened in 1993!

The original Whole Foods was off of Wurzbach Rd. from 1993. They closed it to moved to the Quarry, where a wealthier customer base was calling them.
