Whole Foods Expands in Sedona, Takes Over Five Stores

I have heard that the Whole Foods Market (formerly New Frontiers) in Sedona, on Route 89A, is going to enlarge its store, by taking over the five adjoining stores and creating a megastore for Sedona, but an ordinary one for the Whole Foods chain (404 stores, $13 bil. in revenue, 58,300 employees). On one level, this is free enterprise at work, the drive to get bigger and please Wall Street, and all legal. But in terms of the character of Sedona, this feels like a body blow: A big chain (national brand vs. local entity) erodes the "village" feeling of a row of stores in a shopping strip. If you are in or near Sedona, or enjoy vacationing here, what do you think?
