An interesting development in our hood is the May 25th opening of the first-ever “Whole Foods 365” supermarket in Silver Lake.
This is a unique, first-of-its-kind development.
The story in Curbed LA tells it best.
As far back as 2013, many shoppers were lamenting the demise of the Silver Lake Ralphs, further troubled by the news that its replacement would be an expensive Whole Foods. Surely this was a clear indicator of that dreaded, unstoppable gentrification, some large corporate chain wiping out one more affordable shopping destination for the neighborhood. When Whole Foods finally revealed its plans, they said no. This would be no regular Whole Foods, this would be an affordable Whole Foods, a Whole Foods…for Millennials.
Meet 365, the new Millennial-focused, Whole Foods-branded grocery chain making its nationwide debut in Silver Lake. Affordability and youth-oriented trendiness are key to the new chain. This ain’t your daddy’s Whole Foods.
We look for more to come.
Just one more reason to give us a call to check out the homes and the other benefits of living in Northeast LA.
