Whole Foods opening ninth Philadelphia-area store next week

    Whole Foods has staked out more territory in the area, and will open its ninth Philly-area store next week.

    Grand opening for the Glen Mills store is March 14 with all the usual Whole Foods fixins’
    The Philadelphia Business Journal reports the store will have a coffee bar, wood-burning oven, an outdoor patio and local beers on tap. Philadelphia’s Yards Brewing Co. will develop a special beer recipe for the store.

    Grand opening, indeed. How will anyone get their shopping done?
