Whole Foods just became more Whole Food-ish.

The company’s in the middle of rolling out a new store brand.

It’s called Friends of 365.

Smaller, just as natural organic healthy, you know the drill.

Here’s the twist, though: Bloomberg reported todayand the company confirms, that the new stores will also host smaller pop-up shops.

Record stores, perhaps. Vinyl, of course. Or, tattoo parlors.

Not making this up.
