New Kid on the Block

This Wednesday the Twin Cities' latest Whole Foods store will officially open in Minnetonka, just north of the Ridgedale mall. And if yesterday's sneak peek event is any indication, it's going to be a welcome addition to the area!

People were lined up to take store tours and sample foods and beverages from an array of vendors - many were disappointed they couldn't pull out their wallets and start purchasing groceries!

The store feels fresh and modern and offers some new features not found in the St. Paul or Lake Calhoun outlets - particularly a taqueria, where I've heard that the vegetarian tacos and burritos are tastier than their meaty counterparts. I can't wait to give them a try!

For the tens of thousands of western suburbanites who have been going miles out of their way to get to the Lake Calhoun store the Minnetonka store is long overdue. Obviously it will ease their commute, and maybe it will clear up some of the congestion in the Lake Calhoun store's parking lot! Seriously, it's great to know that the Twin Cities is a strong enough market to support this new store (and yet another one that will open in Edina early next year!). It speaks to Minnesotans' commitment to healthy lifestyles and that's cool as hell!
Congratulations to Whole Foods for a great-looking store in an awesome location, and kudos to all of us healthy Minnesotans who made it possible!
