Default Whole Foods opening in Flower Hill

I heard a rumor that week that Whole Foods will be opening at the Flower Hill Mall (off Via de la Valle) in the Flower Hill theatre location, which is closing. Sad to see the old movie theatre close, but I'm sure everybody in the area will be thrilled to have a WF.

Yup, the rumor is true. I know someone who lives near Flower Hill who's excited to see Whole Foods finally come to Del Mar, but at the same time bummed to see the theaters go. In order to accommodate the traffic increase, they had to choose between the theater or Whole Foods. In the end, Whole Foods won out. There was some opposition to this project, as well.

In case you don't know, the Whole Foods currently under construction in Encinitas is suppose to open in June.

I saw so many movies there as a kid, it's sad to see the old place go. But it was old. And outdated. What were there, 4 screens and a tiny lobby? It couldn't compete with the megaplexes. And on WF, that's good. Fewer people will be swarming the new one opening in downtown Encinitas this summer!

I can hardly stomach buying food at the cheapest places now, food prices are through the roof. No way me.....or any other average barfbag is going to shop there.

I don't think Whole Foods counts on the "average barfbag" to make ends meet. Good thing there are enough food snobs around to keep them afloat.

But isn't there already a Jimbo's there? Don't they sell to the same demographic?

Yes, the Perfumed Yuppies who dine on overpriced organic rot can have WF, I will stick to the good ole fashioned chemical-type food.

Default hi

Nice to hear that you will open a whole food in the theater location but somebody will sad because of they can't see old movies.

And don't forget about the Harvest Ranch markets! The North County coast already has some great markets and it's no wonder Whole Foods wants to get in on the action. Seaside n Cardiff is great little market, but it's expensive.

I wonder if the WF brand name will beat out the locally-owned Harvest Ranch and Seaside Market. It'll be interesting to see where people choose to buy their $9 tubs of potato salad!
