The shelves are waiting to be stocked and the paper removed from the windows in preparation for the opening later this week of the Yummy.com store in Silver Lake. After about a year of preparation, the small chain of grocery stores that promises delivery of online orders in 30 minutes said it will open its Sunset Boulevard store on Friday, May 24 in the former home of Natural Mind Salon, which attracted neighborhood attention and derision for a vertical garden planted on the sides of the building. In addition to 30-minute delivery, customers will be able to shop at the Silver Lake store and deli overlooking Polka Dot Plaza for produce, meat, packaged organic foods as well as beer, wine and liquor products.
