Imagine heading to the grocery store ready to hit the aisles and stock up on everything you need, and then you see it: a bar right next to the bakery section. This isn't a coffee bar; it's a beer and wine bar.

Whole Foods is working on getting the permits required to be able to try out what they are calling "Shop While You Drink" at the Sudbury, Mass. store location. WCVB reports there is much that is involved in getting this type of drinking and grocery shopping experience approved through the town and state.

The closest Whole Foods to the SouthCoast would be the Providence and University locations which are both in Providence, R.I. The next closest store would be Hyannis on Cape Cod.

Wouldn't it be great if Whole Foods would come to the SouthCoast? Like everything else, we will have to just wait and hope for it. 😊
