A Whole (Foods) New World ...

In honor of today's grand opening of the first Whole Foods in Savannah, a new phrase ...

destination grocer

n., a supermarket, usually upscale, where the visit itself is as much of the experience as the actual goods purchased; non-traditional supermarket amenities may include stocking rare or hard-to-find ingredients, a bevy of prepared foods and bulk items, world-class wine and beer selections, a preponderance of local merchants and several self-contained in-store dining options

In the type of coverage usually reserved for visiting heads of state, here's just a sampling of today's local coverage of the WFM grand opening.
