    And earnings up 49%. Solid quarter that should not hurt the stock even though people still look for ways to short it.

    A new WFM just opened in my town (Newport Beach, CA) and it is PACKED! I have no position in WFM but, may consider it after witnessing the traffic day in/day out. I'm talking BUYERS not shoppers. Just sayin.

    I live in Vancouver BC and we have 4 WFM in the area and they are going to open 2 or 3 more stores that I know of. It is packed all the time. Lunch is a big thing with the salad bar/hot bar. They definitely have an advantage on the other grocery stores. I'm pretty sure they are opening up in other provinces also.
    I shop at all the stores at different hours, it is a good way to see what people are buying/how much and to see how busy the stores are, What the employees are like. I do the same with the competitors, the big nationals and the locals. For me this is a long.
