Hello-

Does anyone else wish there was a Whole Foods or something similar in the Tri-cities area? If so, please help me to convince them to open a location here! They have a "Suggest a Store" forum on their website--please suggest the tri-cities...if enough people do this, perhaps they will take notice. Otherwise, please reply to this post and mention that you'd be a potential customer, so they can see that there is interest (I pointed them to this forum, as there are some previous threads on the demand for gourmet grocery stores).

Thanks!

I don't think either could survive here.

Trader Joes would probably find a niche there since it has such good deals. Whole Foods would find it hard to make ends meet unless the drastically changed their M/O. Their prices are just way too high.

Whole Foods would be nice or Trader Joes. I also wish that we had more options for restaurants with healthier choices. I will go to Whole Foods and suggest Tri-Cities like you mentioned.

Yes!! I wish there were either a TJs or Whole Foods in the tri cities area. We may relocate to the area --which I'm not too hip on (I'm more of a big city gal)--needless to say, once I discovered the area was devoid of both TJs and Whole foods -- I was even more bummed about our potential relocation. I'll go to the websites mentioned and make a suggestion, too. Good idea! Are there any other alternative groceries in the area?

The closest thing to "alternative" is Yokes, which are pretty good actually. I hit TJ's whenever I go to Seattle, which is a few times a year.

There is a good European grocery, Eurofoods, in Kennewick, they have mostly East European foods. They do have caviar, good selection of cheese and sausages, canned goods, Russian chocolate, real rye bread, etc.

There is a good health food store in town as well, with non-wheat breads, vitamins, organic produce, etc.

It's a bit bleak but not a total wasteland.

Yeah, I shop at the Yoke's on 27th and Olympia. A lot of it is because it's close to my house, but I also think they're just very good grocers.

Is the Eurofoods the one on that side street near GESA and the bus center? I've driven by it a zillion times but never stopped in.

The health food store, I'm assuming you mean the one on Vista a little south of Aqua Tropics and across from Goodwill? Shopped there a few times, especially for sugar free candy to give my wife for V-day.

There's also a small health food store next to Safeway on GW in Richland.
