The article on the opening of Henry’s implies a couple of things that are not true (“Henry’s opens up,” Oct. 3).
Stating that a health- oriented store like Henry’s was accepted, while two years ago Whole Foods was not, seems to say that Whole Foods was rejected because of the type of store it is. Stating that Whole Foods was too overwhelming for the quiet Rancho District is also misleading — I would hardly call Alameda Avenue quiet, especially during commuting hours. In fact, it is less and less quiet as the months go by.
What is true is that the proposed location for Whole Foods was the problem. Henry’s has precisely what Alameda and Main Street does not, namely a location that is easy to get in and out of partly because of the presence of a traffic light at a parking lot driveway. If the property now occupied by Henry’s had been available to Whole Foods, there would never have been a problem.
