Bring Whole Foods 365 to Altadena
There's nothing quite like the community spirit and desire to mobilize that we have right here in Beautiful Altadena. As many are aware, the Walmart on Lincoln is now closed leaving in its wake another empty building rife for more blight. Many have tried (and failed) to bring a Trader Joe's to the area but the reality is, we're too close to their other stores and they've made it clear that's not going to happen. And while many of us love and will continue to support our local Arroyo Food Coop, the rent of this building is too high for them to be a viable option there.
Let's put our voices together and let Whole Foods know our community is in need of and could support a 365 store and we even have the perfect building ready and waiting for them to move right in.
In case you aren't familiar, the new Whole Foods 365 has a model very similar to Trader Joe's featuring quick, grab and go, affordable (yes, affordable!) healthy food, and they are specifically looking for underserved communities with demographics very similar to ours to test market this new concept. While we're not on their list of first round locations, there's at least a possibility of getting their interest and generating some real movement.
Sign this petition, leave your comments about why our community is ready and in need and share with your friends and neighbors. Let's make this happen!
