I bet this is in response to the highly positive transformation of the Kingsdale Shopping Center and very successful reopening of Giant Eagle Market District at Kingsdale. If you haven't been out there lately, you're going to LOVE it! Both rebuilds are great testaments to the consumer winning in a free market system.

It's a good thing they're relocating. That old store always smelled weird.

The stench is not coming from the store. The smell wafts from liberal Ohio State professors and the hippy students festooned with tattoos as they walk up and down the store aisles.

Yes, Gahanna/New Albany would be a perfect spot for a third Whole Paycheck store.

Jealousy. And listening to too much of Oxycotin-addict Rush Limbaugh.

This -news- is a free ad

This "news" story is nothing more than a fluffed-up version of press releases sent to the Dispatch by Whole Foods and the building owner.
To the Whole Foods PR office: Kudos to you for getting so much free advertising. To the Dispatch: Shame on you for wasting our time and subscriber* money on non-news. To the reporter: I'm sure this story was assigned to you, and I know it's tough to challenge the assignment editor, but I hope you will next time.
Still think this story qualifies as news? Then check out these hard-hitting excerpts:
-- "In fact, some areas like wine and cheese and personal shopping will expand," Hampton said. If an item isn't in stock at the smaller store, the staff will special-order it or bring it over from Whole Foods' Dublin location, she said.
-- "Their updated store will allow for a more desirable shopping experience and will offer additional amenities to the Upper Arlington area," Billy David Andrews, general manager of Ohio and Indiana properties for Ramco-Gershenson, said in a statement.("...a statement," eh? Why have reporters?)
-- During construction, the company will post updates on its Facebook page and in its store newsletter.
* Yes, I subscribe to the delivered Dispatch. But for how long? Who wants to pay to read press releases?

Actually, the price of some staples at WF is cheaper than at Kroger's (natural peanut butter, tofu, etc.) The owner and founder, John Mackey, is a libertarian who is opposed to ObamaCare, so I shop there all the time (being walking distance from my job doesn't hurt either).

You also have to like the fact that John Mackey is a troll who likes flaming people on message boards. You have to love a gazillionaire who enjoys that as a hobby.

Are you serious? Kingsdale is one of the ugliest hodge podge of buildings I've seen. The Macy's is a ugly blue green brick...every building looks like it doesn't belong.

The new Giant Eagle...well, anywhere where they have to hire people to guide you through the store is a wee bit too big.

Traffic is worse too.

Oh yeah, big win for the consumer.

When they tore down Beechmont Mall, it was left with an ugly old Macy's building surrounded by a new outdoor center. They decided to paint the Macy;s building, but it doesn't look much better. It is still an ugly old building.

Yep, just what the Short North needs because, you know, it has so much parking.
