The new Santa Clara Square complex has been much anticipated as I've driven by their construction site daily. This week, Whole Foods and a few other retailers had their grand opening to officially open the Square for business. The following photos and video are a blend of shots from my iPhone, Canon Powershot, and Whole Foods' promotional photos. They cover the media preview event and grand opening day which my husband went to.
Colin bear did not like Sourdough Sam, the Niners mascot, on opening day. But he did like the cheerleaders and getting Dwight Clark's autograph.
