Just got the following notice from Whole Foods:
The new Whole Foods Haight store is actually open today! Since the store was ready they decided to open today – a soft opening – to get their sea legs before the big grand opening this Wednesday, Feb. 16. On Wednesday, we’ve still got a bread breaking at 9:45 a.m. with Ross Mirkarimi (Supe) and Ted Lowenberg (President – Haight Ashbury Improvement Association) speaking and the traditional cutting of an eight-foot sourdough loaf.
Also, walking by Haight Street Market, it appears work on their planned expansion might be underway.
