I am thrilled that Whole Foods is FINALLY going to open in Gowanus. Regardless of what you think of of Whole Foods, it is a well run business. It’s clean, they have excellent products, and the employees are friendly, professional, and efficient.
Always the sentimentalist, here are some of the things I will miss by not shopping at some of the other local grocery stores:
I’ll miss your produce pre-wrapped in plastic and packed in threes.
I’m not sure what I’ll do without your overly-OVERLY-friendly cashiers.
Who wouldn’t miss the byzantine cobble-stoned route that one must drive to get to Fairway.
I will miss your friendly cats (but the bugs in the pasta, not so much.)
The Park Slope Food Co-op
I think I’ll miss you most of all, where will I get the over inflated sense of self regard that comes with shopping at the co-op.
What will you miss while shopping at Whole Foods?
