I think this sort of store model would do better in a downtown core, in a large office tower. It had great lunch selections, and good grab and go options, but I didn't feel like it really fit at a mall.

365 was so so boring. I found nothing compelling about it.

They were the only store in the whole metro that had an orange juice juicing machine where you could make your own juice and buy in large quantities (half gallon, gallon, etc). Once you have some OJ this way, there's no going back to that pasteurized garbage.

Will be sad to see this store go.

It’s very common in Europe. I wonder how hard it is to ensure cleanliness, one sick person and the lawyers will rev their engines.

I'm curious if the closing is a WF or an Amazon decision. I imagine they are locked into a long term lease there so maybe Amazon has something planned for that spot. A flagship Amazon Go store?

Can't imagine replacing one grab and go with another. My guess would be an Amazon brick and mortar if truly engaged in keeping.

Is the 365 a Bellevue Square location? Its located where Home Goods and near Home Depot. I wonder if Kemper Freeman has anything to do with this....it also is meant to attract a lower income crowd that Bellevue Square (Home Goods, Best Buy, and 365). The information seems incorrect.

Maybe it's revenge for Amazon not leasing office space in Lincoln Square!

This also happened recently with Simon (a large mall owner) suing Teavana, winning, and forcing them to NOT close their stores in Simon's malls. I bet there are a lot of companies out there right now reviewing their leases and revising what they'll agree to in the future.

The Teavana ruling was particularly interesting in that Teavana was stopped from closing their stores due to potential irreparable financial harm to Simon. Teavana as a critical component to the health of a shopping mall is quite the notion.

Strange for Simon, even stranger for Teavana to ever agree to lease terms like that.

I believe you're thinking of the Trader Joe's on 116th. 365 took over the basement level of the former JCPenny store at Bellevue Square.

I'm sure it's a material hit to Simon's bottom line. 77 locations closing simultaneously would move the needle.

It's an interesting case and it will be interesting to see what happens on appeal. I would assume that the possible outs for Teavana on their leases did not include lessee's discretion but it's hard to say what's going on without more info about the lease language coming out. It's certainly going to set quite the precedent, though.

It’s interesting to me that WF 365 was willing to continue making the lease payments, but not to operate it. My gut tells me that with Amazon now owning WF, the space may become a new Amazon concept that will further erode traditional retail.

Kemper Freeman may have won this battle, but the campaign continues.

Did anyone else find it odd that Kemper decided to get into this fight with Amazon while being in the business of building office space in Bellevue? Amazon just occupied an entire office tower in Bellevue this year with the snap of a finger; why would Kemper burn that bridge?

Its not about burning bridges, Whole Foods signed a bad lease agreement with Kemper before Amazon took over. From Amazons point of view, they are still making lease payments so they didnt break their contract per se, but Kemper wants the space open to generate more foot traffic in his mall. He may have side revenue from residential and commercial, but his bread and butter is the mall and thr people who shop there.
