Is there anything more oxymoronic than half a Whole Foods? Our mind was blown by several lines from Friday's speech on the most important grocery store in America. “This is not going to be a half Whole Foods store,” Whole Foods Co-CEO Walter Robb told the Detroit Economic Club luncheon. “This is going to be a whole Whole Foods store. You’re getting our 'A' game here.” In addition to proving how holy the whole Whole Foods would be, the luncheon produced this line in The Detroit News: "the upscale natural foods grocer 'is committed to being over-committed' to Detroit." A Freep photographer was dispatched to photograph a mound of dirt in midtown to highlight it's important importance as future whole WF dirt. [Freep/The Detroit News]
