The soon to open Whole Foods in Hyde Square just tweeted pics of the new space, which will open next week. Hi-Lo Foods stood for 47 years on the same spot, a fact that caused a stir among some locals, as reported by WBUR and the Globe. Some residents went so far as to start a protest website, which challenged the intentions of the feel-good, national supermarket known for its Edenic produce displays. Whole Foods reached out to the community, providing 45 jobs for former Hi Lo employees, who will be opening the doors of the new store on Wednesday.
