Whole Foods May Open in Penn Quarter

According to Shawington, of the Life in Mount Vernon Square Blog:

"Support our neighbors to the south & SIGN THE PETITION TO BRING WHOLE FOODS TO PENN QUARTER. Douglas Development has recently purchased the space at 7th & E originally slated to become a Balduccis back in the day. The Dowtown Neighborhood Association has been working to attract another grocer since that deal fell thru. As announced at the last DNA meeting, DD is reportedly trying to work out a deal with Whole Foods now and the neighborhood is demonstrating the demand for a grocer by this petition. So if you live near, work in, or shop in Penn Quarter, take a moment and fill it out!"

This entry by Whole Foods marks the second possible entry into Penn Quarter by a grocery store. The first was a Safeway at 1010 Mass Ave.
