SILVER LAKE — Apparently Whole Foods wants to offer customers more than just groceries at its new, 365 stores, the first of which is scheduled to open this fall in Silver Lake. The company on its Friends of 365 website says it is seeking partners ranging from record shops to tattoo parlors to “do their thing” inside the new 365 stores, which are designed to appeal to younger, budget-minded shoppers.
None of the partners have been selected yet. But USA Today, which interviewed a Whole Foods spokeswoman, said that the “options could include food vendors, lifestyle brands and services.”
So, what kind of friends/partners would Silver Lake to see at its 365 store? Vegan dog biscuit makers? Green corn tamale vendors? Yoga instructors in the produce section?
