After writing a few posts about the new Whole Foods (across from the outlet mall) … making sure it is paying its fair share for impacts from the new development, it seems I have been invited to an envisioning session about what should be offered at the new grocery store. I already said that I would like Rogue Dead Guy beer on tap at their “tap room” but that seems legally impossible due to state liquor laws, so I won’t hold out hope for that one.
That said, I have all sorts of crazy ideas including:
- How do we ensure the affordable housing planned as part of this development is used by Whole Foods employees?
- If Kamas and the Canyons can have a privately run liquor stores, why can’t Whole Foods house/take-over the Kimball Junction liquor store?
- Do they have plans to include solar power for their store in Park City?
- The Cottonwood Heights Whole Foods displays local artwork. Could the Park City Whole Foods work in conjunction with the Kimball Arts Center to display art?
If there is something you’d like included in the development or you have ideas that you think Whole Foods should consider, email and I’ll be sure to mention it next Friday.
