Re: “Whole Foods or Major Headache?

There are a lot of retails spaces on San Pable that have never been occupied since they were built a few years ago, like the ones between Washington and Portland and the condos above them did not all sell either. As much as I'd like the convenience of Whole Foods nearby, I would rather support the local store. The Starbucks/Peets comparison is specious. It's like Borders and B&N of a few years ago; a duel to the death in competitive overbuilding and Borders lost. Eventually Starbucks will be driven out just like they were on Shattuck. So the proposal as currently described makes no sense. The last thing we need is more nail salons in Albany, which is what the last few new businesses on Solano have been. PLEASE Albany leaders get a real business development plan and stop being whipsawed by the local property cartel and their empty promises of improved tax base.
