Haight Ashbury Hearts Texas-Based Whole Foods – New Store Coming to Stanyan

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Didn’t make it to the entire meeting of the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council yesterday but everything seemed pretty copacetic from what I could see.  A representative from Whole Foods made a presentation about their proposed store at 690 Stanyan. Then came the Q and A:

Will they have organic food? Yes. Will they have stuff on sale sometimes? Yes. That’s how it went.

Attention developers – this is the kind of get-together you need to hold before you can begin developing in San Francisco. Paying thousands of dollars a year to nearby community groups, as Sutro Tower, Inc. does, might also help but outreach meetings like these are mandatory. Just saying.

The next stop is a rubber stamp from the Planning Commission on January 28th. Then you can look forward to having a place to shop for Thanksgiving in Autumn. 

Hooray!

A New Whole Foods at 690 Stanyan – The Spate in the Haight, Thursday, Thursday, Thursday!

It’s all going down this Thursday, January 14th, 2010, at the Park Branch Library on Page Street in the Upper Haight – representatives from Whole Foods will be on hand to discuss their proposed new store at Stanyan and Haight.

The proposed residences upstairs are no longer in the works but there’s still lots to argue about. Grab your pink popcorn and show up at the library at 7:00 PM for the next Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council Community Meeting:

See you there!*

*At the meeting, not at Whole Foods, which is too rich for my blood.
