Whole Foods opens in Bellingham to crowd of shoppers, protest

Hundreds of shoppers and a few dozen protesters were on hand for the opening ceremony of the Whole Foods grocery store in the Lakeway Center on Wednesday, May 11.

For the shoppers, Wednesday was a chance to check out what the 50,000-square-foot natural foods store at 1030 Lakeway Drive had to offer. While many did have a few items in carts and baskets, quite a few were browsing the different departments, trying out samples and talking to employees and vendors.
