Mass conversion of the populace to the Democratic Party!

And a Whole Foods (or do you have one already?).

I don't think Whole Foods has moved in yet, but I can check on that. I'm pretty sure they haven't.

As for the former idea, that won't happen. That would require more people moving in from other places.

You'll have to tell me the exact location. I keep hearing about it, but don't know specifically where it is. Maybe they can move it further out of the city.

It's off the Slaton Highway. From 289, exit 84 toward Snyder, and go several miles until you see a road that merges on the left. Before it merges, extend your neck to the left. You'll see it.

Haha, we don't have a Whole Foods yet. Most grocery stores are too afraid to compete with United to move into Lubbock. Most people get their organic foods from the farmers market.

Has HEB ever moved into that part of the state? I really prefer Central Market (HEB's answer to Whole Foods) over Whole Foods.

I love HEB! Unfortunately, they haven't tried to move into Lubbock. I think the nearest HEB is in Big Spring..

If they're that close it's got to be only a matter of time before they move into Lubbock. After all, they used to just be in South Texas. I think their normal supermarkets are ok, but the Central Markets are really wonderful. The only thing is that you still have to go somewhere else for a full range of cleaning products, detergents, pet foods, etc. However, for produce, meat and fish, and lots of gourmet products, as well as dairy, Central Market can't be beat. I guess it wouldn't apply within the city limits of Lubbock, but Central Markets also have wonderful beer and wine departments.

Was United around when you lived here, doctorjef? I agree about the Central Markets being great. Whenever we go to a larger Texas city, my family stocks up on certain foods you can't get at Market Street in Lubbock. If any other chain can make it in Lubbock, though, it would be HEB. It's just really hard to compete with United in Lubbock because they are headquartered here and have loyal customers (for good reason). BTW, alcohol will be able to be sold very soon (at most a couple of months).
