Whole Foods – Noe Valley ‘mini’ store

From SuperMarke News June 2nd:

The smallest Whole Foods store in the company’s development pipeline — only 16,790 square feet — will apparently replace one of the two remaining Bell Markets stores in this city. Whole Foods Market, Austin, Texas, was previously reported to be considering the site, which is located in the Noe Valley district. Whole Foods’ website currently lists a planned store that’s the same size as the existing Bell Market in the neighborhood. Neither Whole Foods nor Ralphs, the Kroger division that operates Bell Markets, would confirm the plans. Whole Foods has said it was planning to open more smaller stores, and it is developing a grab-and-go prepared-foods small-format store in Boulder, Colo.

It’s not clear whether this is actually new news, since the same source of information was cited last September by the Noe Valley Voice, also without confirmation.
