The countdown is on. Seven days left until Whole Foods opens its ginormous new flagship store in Pasadena at the corner of Arroyo Parkway and Bellevue. As the signs plastered all over the storefront state the store is scheduled to open November 7th at 9:00am. Unlike the secretive F&E types, the windows for the Whole Foods were not covered up. But there was nothing really to see, just signage and shelving and a flat screen monitor broadcasting an undetermined message which may have given us eye cancer from staring too long. As of yesterday the sidewalk is still not in place.
