Whole foods just move, I will shop at your store if it is in Columbus, Grandview, or whereever. Don't put up with losers on UA zoning board.

They better figure this out because I love the convenience of Whole Foods being on Lane.
The fact that I can just run in to get great food helps my family have a better, more healthy lifestyle. I know what the UA Council is going for, but is it worth losing the store? If it looks anything like the store on 161 it will be fantastic.

I see both sides. In the end, I'm sure they'll work it out and both sides will be happy.

Entrance in the back? Sitting back from the other shops on Lane? C'mon, Whole Foods, you're not going to get acres of parking in front in a giant stip mall like in Dublin. There is a concerted effort to increase the density of commerical areas in UA--this is certainly worthwhile, and would seem to fit in with the image the Whole Foods woud like to project.

there's nothing like having a Whole Foods nearby - if UA opts out too bad for the healthy conscience residents - seems the commission is poking around for dollars - I hope WF's doesn't cave - the current store is not a great money maker (the new one will be and deliver tax dollars to UA) - being one of about 200 communities in the country that has a WF would be a feather in the UA hat
