Whole Foods is Coming to Boise, Idaho - Finally!

I have wondered for years why we don't have more stores such as Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho.  We have a population that is very health concious, outdoorsy, granola-y (I say that with the most endearment).  We have one store like this - The Boise Co-Op.  But we certainly have room for more.  We've had rumors of Whole Foods coming for quite some time.  Then we had the "bust" and we didn't think they were coming at all.  Finally Whole Foods has purchase a piece of ground in North Boise and the corner of Broadway and Myrtle.  There will also a be a new Walgreens built there as well.  You can never have enough Walgreen's!

According to the Idaho Statesman today, ground breaking for this project will begin on Friday of this week.  

Now we just need to get Trader Joes to come this direction, and preferably on the South or West side of town and I'd be a happy camper :-)

I LOVE Whole Foods.  There is one less than 2 blocks from AR HQ's and we visit frequently.  No Trader Joes yet?  How do you survive?

Seriously, Kerrie, I have no idea why we can't get a Trader Joe's here, it's so sad.  Whole Foods is a good step though, I'm very excited.  Only bummer is it's way on the other side of town from me - but, oh well, at least it will be in the same town :-)
