Look what sweet little somewhat-behind-the-times Columbia is getting!!!
A WHOLE FOODS MARKET!!!
I know. A new grocery store as a blogging topic? Really?
This is exciting news for so many reasons - new development and revitalization (new jobs + increased tax base + re-using existing infrastructure) to help the area - yeah, I'll take my brownfields hat off now...
And another option for grocery shopping, beyond the familiar walls of the Social Pig (Piggly Wiggly) and Publix that I frequent, and the occasional trip to the Gamecok Bi-Lo.
I'm thrilled. Big news. Exciting news. And as my good friend Ash pointed out - with all of the recent new developments in Cola-town - (Mast General Store recently opened on Main Street), it's anyone's guess what is next to come.
Hint: We'd REALLY like a Trader Joes. Or a Costco. Pretty please? With a cherry on top?
