I shop at that store at least once a week and I dropped by earlier only to find them packing up the shelves.
Their reason is that according to the local community needs we do not need all three locations. What crap! That Wild Oats is always busy. Now they expect me to drive almost 5 more miles to a different location when I already drive nearly that far? Won't happen.
On the bright side, one of their employees told me that a different natural food store is moving in. They don't know for sure which one yet. Hopefully not Vitamin Cottage, which has a very limited selection. I am crossing my fingers and hoping for a Trader Joes, but that is unlikely since it isn't exactly a natural food mart, even though that have lots of natural foods.
Now supposedly they aren't closing until Feb 11th, but there was almost nothing on the shelves today and they were busily packing up what was left. Tomorrow is a 1/3 off sale, but on what?
