We have not received any substantial updates on the efforts to bring Whole Foods Market to DC USA for the past several months. All we know is that negotiations continue. The same major sticking point remains - the inability to meet Whole Food's demand for dedicated parking. Drew Greenwald, President of Grid Properties, recently informed us that they have not given up on Whole Foods yet but they do have, "many other exciting retailers that are also looking at the site as well." Mr. Greenwald did not elaborate any further.
We have found it very difficult to reach Ms. Riley lately. The last time we heard from her was in late March when she explained to us that our emails were making a positive impact and that we should continue directing our emails of support to her. We are still waiting for an update from her.
We wish that a final decision could be made soon, one way or the other. On a positive note, it gives those of us who support Whole Foods Market more time to influence the decision. If you haven't already, please write the designated point of contact for our Whole Foods campaign, Karen Riley, at . For those who have already written Ms. Riley, and would like to share more of your thoughts to her, please do so. To help us keep track of the volume of emails being sent to Ms. Riley, please let us know that you have emailed her or simply copy us on the email.
As always, you can continue to share your thoughts with others on our online petition. We have already compiled some of the responses on the petition and sent it to Whole Foods Market chairman, John Mackey, a few weeks ago. We will keep you posted on any more updates that we receive.
