Whole Foods Fremont now open. It's a bit far from the freeway, you gotta drive about 20 minutes after exiting to get here.
Got there a bit after 7am standing in line for the free goodie bag to the first 250 ppl. The first people got there at 4am, they are hard core. After getting my number got to walk around & waited in the car a bit. Numbers were given out about 8am, so people after 8am probably couldn't get it.
Bread breaking, speeches from WF & Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison, we all crowded & people pushed & shoved to get into the store after 10am.
Lots of stuff to look at:
