Well, it seems like Destin Florida is finally really getting on the “map”! I was excited to read the news about a Whole Foods coming to Destin! The closest Whole Foods are in New Orleans, Birmingham and Tallahassee… and soon, in Destin Florida! The store will be located on Highway 98 off Destin Commons next to Rooms to Go and across from Lowes’ parking lot. It seems like a bit of a crowded location, but it’s convenient. I drive by there going to work every day and I’ll have to decide if I hit Publix or Whole Foods. It will be the second “high end” grocery store in Destin. Fresh Market is the the other one, located near Home Depot and Kelly Plantation. I love Fresh Market, but don’t go there regularly because it’s not directly on my way home. (At Fresh Market, you feel like you are attending a symphony. Everyone walks around in awe, speaking in hushed tones, staring at the food displays.) Not having had the pleasure of shopping at a Whole Foods before, I’ve checked out their website. I was immediately impressed by their “5-Step Animal Welfare Rating” system for beef, chicken and poultry, emphasis on organic foods and ranking in Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For for for 17 years. They also accept Apple Pay (which will correspond to me having to get the new iPhone 6 plus and an Apple Watch)! How long do we have to wait before Whole Foods opens in Destin Florida? Sigh… 2016.
