Northtown Plaza in Amherst will be welcoming more big-name stores, as it continues to transform itself.

Though in its early days, Whole Foods is enjoying great success at its location in Amherst. According to Jim Fink of Business First, company officials are monitoring that activity as they weigh further expansion in the region. "They have an urban supermarket model, called '365.'" That model, Fink said, could lead to a location in the city of Buffalo. It's one of several issues discussed during his monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass.
