The Wedge seeks community input; Hennepin Whole Foods has opening date

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.

See Also:

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.

Don't know much about the employees, but the shoppers there are douchebags.

please explain why it makes sense to locate near "low-income shoppers"??? I can barely afford an oz. of quinoa salad there....

They should put it someplace incredibly unwelcoming and snobby. You know, somewhere that fits the attitude the wedge tried to portray.

After that 'little' mess with the water pipes the laborers Whole Foods hired caused on the coldest night of 2012-2013 winter? It is finally reckoning time.

Years ago this neighborhood got fliers about Whole Foods opening in the autumn of (I think) it was 2005. At least they maintained the autumnal opening!
