|Tell The Wedge where they should put their second location|
The Wedge currently holds the unique distinction of selling more product per square foot than any other co-op in the country. This means (as anyone who has ever shopped there already knows) two things. First, it's always impossibly busy... and second, it's really too small to accommodate that much traffic. The solution? Expand, of course. The question? Where.
In order to help make the most informed decision on where to put their second location and what areas they should emphasize in the remodel of their current store, the management team that runs the Wedge has released an in-depth survey.
They're polling their members and the community at large about everything from salad bars to social issues. So far they have determined that the store should be near public transit lines and be easily accessed by lower-income, immigrant, and disabled shoppers, reports the Southwest Journal.
If you want to make your opinions on the re-model and new Wedge heard, take the survey here.
And there's more grocery store news across town. The long-awaited Whole Foods on the corner of Hennepin and Washington Avenues is set to open on September 25 at 9:00 a.m. This location will feature Neapolitan pizza, house-made gelato sold by the scoop and to take home, as well as a beer and wine shop. They'll be celebrating the grand opening all day
with free food samples, live entertainment, and prizes.
