Hi! Hi there! Hi! Boo!
Ah….boo! There you are. I see you! Did you forget about your Auntie Whole Foods? You have, haven’t you, you widdle-biddle-Brooklyn consumer! Yes you are! Yes you are!

Plaid shirt. Ironic tattoo. Warby Parkers. Outdated mustache. A one-bedroom in Williamsburg. What makes a hipster? Read More
Today the Whole Foods in Gowanus opened with considerable fanfare—vinyl records! Brooklyn-made treats! A rooftop beer garden!—attracting a stampede of hungry Brooklynites and apparently, a few Park Slope Co-op defectors (hey, in our experience, Whole Foods’ management of lines is very impressive). But the decrepit Coignet Building, the 140-year-old concrete mansion located just five feet from the gleaming new grocery store, is not sharing in all the bonhomie.
Though Whole Foods seemed like it might be a boon for the landmarked building—when the building’s owner, Richard Kowalski sold Whole Foods the lot in 2005 he extracted a promise from the bougie retailer to restore its exterior. But while Whole Foods has provided a new roof, the structure is otherwise worse for the wear, according to Brownstoner, having apparently sustained serious injuries during the grocery store’s construction.

As jackhammers pound away at the future Whole Foods on Bedford Avenue, word is spreading that Apple is eying a building (once reportedly scoped out by J. Crew) just across Williamsburg’s main drag for one of the company’s attention-getting stores.

Today, with news of a partnership with a local arts group, it’s clear the soon-to-open Gowanus Whole Foods is trying its best to become one with its hipster clientele.

“Whole Foods? More like Whole Paycheck!” That’s one of the really funny jokes commonly bestowed on the yuppie warehouse for years, but it’s trying out promotions via Twitter and Facebook to shed that image. According to the WSJ, your rich aunt’s favorite grocery store is posting “flash sales” to lure in customers who would normally flee to the closest Trader Joe’s instead.
