Friday was a day to remember in Delaware County. The Whole Foods Market in Newtown Square opened its doors. Customers had anticipated the supermarket’s opening for four years, ever since they got wind of its impending arrival. When I pulled into the parking lot Friday at the Ellis Preserve Shopping Center, where the new store is located, I was admittedly a little amazed. There were at least a dozen traffic directors, in bright orange and yellow vests, keeping order to the unending flow of vehicles arriving. The place was wall-to-wall shoppers, hundreds of eager customers-– you would have thought they were giving groceries away for free!
