  • Who wants to buy The Fresh Market?  [View news story]
    WFM seems to really be holding its own. Recently added an employees parking lot at the rear of the store to free up spaces for customers.

    As an aside to your high income comment (Thanks!) Mountain Brook has a per capita income of $73,465 and a median household income of $135,833. Not exactly the stereotype of the poor southern town (g).

  • Who wants to buy The Fresh Market?  [View news story]
    In our area (Birmingham, AL) there is a new Trader Joe's (opened last week), Whole Foods, Fresh Market and Sprouts within about a five mile range on the same road. Something's gotta give....the major population concentration has to drive by ALL of them to get home.

    Fresh Market is showing signs of malaise with the new competition. Example: stopped by yesterday to buy an item on sale. Price had not been changed in computer, new checkout girl had no idea what to do. Other checkout person helped her and charged sales tax twice. Meat department staff all has a attitude.

    This one is dropping off the radar pretty quickly....
