Waiting for Whole Foods...

The IJ reports on the long long wait for Whole Foods to open their new store at the Alto Center in Mill Valley. WF claim they are simply going through the required permitting phase, but you can't help but wonder whether they are deliberately dragging their feet.
The delay has fueled rumors that Whole Foods leased the space to keep Trader Joe's out of Mill Valley. An existing Whole Foods outlet does a bustling business about two miles away at 414 Miller Ave. in Mill Valley. Kathy Severson, executive officer for the city's Chamber of Commerce, said she couldn't comment on such speculation, but "I do know that the Miller Avenue Whole Foods is considered a very high-volume store for its size."

Enough said.
