PHOTOS: A First Look Inside Whole Foods Market JP

Whole Foods opened its doors to the media four days before its anticipated and controversial opening.

At 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Whole Foods Market Jamaica Plain is set to open. But you don't have to wait to get a peek at the inside of the grocery store. Whole Foods offered tours to the media on Saturday.

Later, we'll also be posting a video tour.

This so called Whole Foods effect, when did these studies take place? Wasn't the study published in 2007? I'm guessing they sourced data over several previous years, thus, these large and unjustified upswings in property value could be related to housing boom.

http://www.prx.org/pieces/15461-the-whole-foods-effect#description A 2006 NPR story. A lot of things have happened since then, especially to the housing market.

"Their CEO's are both right-wing libertarian nut-jobs who hate paying taxes and put a lot of energy into dismantling any obligations for actually paying for healthcare." So If they are "right-wing libertarian nut-jobs", where exactly does that leave you? "Holier than Thou bleeding heart pinko commie leftist liberal lunatic"?

1. Unions are not, by definition, good. There can be benefits. There can be drawbacks. It is up to the workers to decide. 2. I bet the many, many small producers who do business with WFM don't consider it smoke and mirrors. It's called SALES. 3. Pursuing smaller markets, particularly in urban areas is good business sense and serves the community well. How many places are there in our fair city that could accomodate a store the size of River St in Cambridge? Or the Dedham store? 4. There's a ton of nut-jobs out there. All kinds. Many right here in JP. But you cannot say that WFM has crappy healthcare benefits. They may not be gold standard but they aren't bad.
