Site Visit: Whole Food's Lifestyle Store, LA
We decided, in the spirit of eco-consciousness, to assume that Whole Food’s was recycling the strip mall unit to avoid the eco-waste of tearing it down and putting up something more shiny.
Our initial impressions were confounded by our second impressions. In the entrance stood a promotion table – on it sat a mannequin cross legged in yoga pose with crazy hippy-yoga attire and Aztec colored yoga rolls. The crappy mini-TV screen beside the mannequin would probably play a smiling So-Cal Yoga instructor if someone hadn’t thankfully turned it off.
