NRal Whole Foods location, hopefully you prefer the mixed in approach because that is exactly what they've done. To me, it's a mistake and makes shopping much more difficult, especially for brand new GF'ers. When you first start shopping GF, you don't recognize any of the brands and must re-learn all of your brand loyalty. When GF pasta is mixed in with regular wheat pasta, it makes the possibility for mistakes much higher. Additionally, you must rely on store employees to correctly put that little Gluten Free tag on the shelf under the GF product to draw your eye along with very careful reading of labels (you should do this regardless). When GF goods are in their own dedicated section, this issue is eased somewhat.
Putting that aside, another location for Whole Foods which carries a huge selection of GF products, is a huge win for Raleigh area GF consumers. I saw many of the products I've become loyal to over the past 2+ years along with some new products that are hard to find in other stores. Not all of the shelves were stocked yet, but I'm assuming this location will probably carry the largest selection of GF products in Raleigh once it is fully stocked. In addition, the location will stock excellent meat, seafood and produce sections with products from local vendors - all of these items are naturally GF.
Overall, this is an awesome addition for the Gluten Free Raleigh consumer - let me know your thoughts.
