Whole Foods Comes to San Jose

The first Whole Foods in San Jose proper is now open on Blossom Hill. The 50,000 sqft store has some unique twists such as a Middle Eastern shawarma bar, 200 products from local vendors, 300 different types of beers, an in-store dining area, coffee bar made out of recycled materials, and a play area for kids. In fact, it's unique enough that Whole Foods will offer tours of the store to patrons.

To balance out the good news with some predictable bad news, the Downtown San Jose Whole Foods has been delayed from 2011 to 2013. Maybe that will give them enough time to put rooftop parking back in the plans for that location.
