Developer Central

Wild Oats is getting some competition in the Green Hills upscale overpriced organic yippie (yuppy + hippie) grocery store market — the Nashville Post is reporting that a Whole Foods will be landing in the new Hill center, located on the site of the old H.G. Hills grocery store. In addition, plans for the site currently contain 162,000 square feet of retail space and 120,000 square feet of office space.

Meanwhile, construction has begun on the site of west Nashville’s new Costco, located at 6670 Charlotte Ave (you know, where there once was a veritable near-forest of trees and now there is .. not).

Consumerism ahoy!

    Oh, that’s what’s going there on Charlotte. It’s better than a subdivision. Maybe.

    I’ve known about the Whole Foods opening (last I heard, in 2007) for quite some time and I continue to be perplexed at the location. Why right next door to the Wild Oats? I guess “great minds” think alike. I’m using the term loosely, of course. If Whole Foods has an entrance off Hillsboro Circle and is, therefore, easier to get in and out of, they’ll get my business.

    Competitor’s proximity to one another is pretty common because they don’t have the consumer convenience in mind — just their business.

    Why go through all the effort of location selection, demographic analysis, marketing efforts, when you can just plop next to a competitor who has already done all this?

    Does ANYONE know what else is going to be in the lot that used to be HG Hills and shopping strip? They’ve got a big hole now, but not much else going on.
