Shopping at Whole Foods in Cherry Creek can be an exercise in frustration. Trying to pick up a few last minute items there on Thanksgiving Eve is completely insane.
The store has lovely displays, great produce, hormone-free meats and amazing cheeses. It also has parking issues and high prices. Nonetheless, I find myself there at least twice a month picking up a few things that Safeway or King Soopers don’t carry.
I was there this evening. Next year, I need to plan ahead better. The time it took to get into and out of the parking lot was more time than it took to do the shopping.
I did manage to find a beautiful bouquet of flowers and picked up my favorite tuna salad with cranberries.
If you need a few quick items, you may prefer the Whole Foods on Colorado Boulevard or on Hampden Avenue – fewer parking issues. If you want to pick up some information on Denver Real Estate – read the latest article in the Denver Post. I was quoted about yesterday’s Case Shiller report and what the trends bode for our local real estate market.
Real estate sales in Denver are up from last month, prices are down just a little. The price reduction is most likely due the change in seasons from summer to fall. It’s also a reflection of what specific properties have sold.
Enjoy your holiday and stay away from the crowds on Friday!
