Don’t Mess With Texas: That New Whole Foods at Haight and Stanyan Appears to be Doing Remarkably Well

Let’s see here, Texas-based Whole Foods came to town a while back and (finally) managed to buy off the local NIMBY-types, then got on with construction last year, and then withstood the peanut gallery and then opened up in February and then withstood the curious crowds and then got in on the sumo fruit craze.

But still, some carp.

Anyway, check out the cleanest, graffiti-free wall in the Haight – this is the south side of the building. It’s amazingly free of tagging. Perhaps area youth have respekt for the WF? Perhaps the wall is coated with Teflon?

But that’s OK.

So, as stated, That New Whole Foods at Haight and Stanyan Appears to be Doing Remarkably Well.

(Why did we have to have this property sit empty for all those years?)
