Whole Foods

(WFM)

is catching the attention of netizens after the city of New Orleans voted down multiple changes that a local operator said had hindered the healthy grocery store for years.

A commission refused Whole Food's request to increase the number of 18-wheel trucks that could deliver food to the New Orleans store every day and rejected an increase in the span of time that deliveries could be made.

The location was also denied the right to host indoor and outdoor live entertainment. The location has fought with neighborhood regulations since its contentious opening in 2002.
