Whole Foods, the gold standard in the organic/upscale/trendy grocery market sector, is buying the Wild Oats chain for about a half-billion dollars.

No answers yet to key LR questions: Will the LR Wild Oats convert to a Whole Foods and will Whole Foods go ahead with the move from western LR to the new midtown shopping center? (It occurs to me I've never been in a Whole Foods that did NOT have a wine section. That's not possible in Arkansas currently, except for Arkansas wines.)

The local Wild Oats store hadn't even heard the news yet. And they also have no date for the move to midtown.
