I asked them to share stories of their neighborhoods, what they’re like now, how they’ve changed, and how they feel about those changes. These voices became the makings of this seven-part radio documentary: <em>Along Saint Claude.</em></p> Fri, 11 Apr 2014 17:08:55 +0000 Eve Abrams 54250 at http://wwno.org Whole Foods Opens New Store, Geared To Lower Income Shoppers, In Mid-City http://wwno.org/post/whole-foods-opens-new-store-geared-lower-income-shoppers-mid-city <p><span style="background-color: transparent; font-family: Arial; font-size: 21px; white-space: pre-wrap; line-height: 1.5;">A new Whole Foods store opened in Mid-City on Tuesday, at Broad and </span>Bienville<span style="background-color: transparent; font-family: Arial; font-size: 21px; white-space: pre-wrap; line-height: 1.5;">.
