Lake Oswego, OR. It has been a month since the “365 by Whole Foods Market” opened in Lake Oswego and locals keep streaming in.

It’s also self-serve without a full service deli, meat department or bakery. Still, lots of shoppers like the concept and the lower prices. It’s the second such store opened by Whole Foods in the U.S.

President of 365 by Whole Foods Market, Jeff Turnas, explains, “The name celebrates our belief that fresh healthy foods can be readily available to more people in an affordable way every day…365 days a year. It also tips our hat to our popular 365 Everyday Value brand, which our shoppers seek out for quality, transparency and great value — the same attributes to come with our smaller-store format.
