So over in LAist, there's much about ado about nothing. Literally nothing. They report that someone apparently took the time to put up a banner announcing the arrival of a new Whole Foods in Silverlake, at an abandoned Circuit City…as a joke.
The website posits “It's an odd thing to joke about, isn't it?” Why yes. Yes it is.
The site confirmed with the company that they have no immediate plans to
develop a store in hipster-haven Silverlake and then retracted an earlier post which they announced said opening.
What does this have to do with OC? Well in denying the Silverlake
location, the company relisted their real planned openings which include
one in Fashion Island and Laguna Niguel. No joke.
