No More Bulk Valrhona Cocoa at San Rafael Whole Foods

And the bulk chocolate selection has been severely diminished. I went by today to stock up, and the large display over the cheese case had been moved to a sad little corner. I didn't see Valrhona or El Rey, just Callebeaut bulk, and something else that looked gross and light-colored (not milk-chocolate or giandua, something weird) .The person working the cheese counter told me that that that was all they had, and that they wouldn't be carrying anything else. Even the 500g Callebaut in the baking aisle was gone! Someone in customer service said that a bunch of stuff (not just chocolate) in the store had recently been replaced with other brands, or disappeared entirely.

Anyone know if the Mill Valley Whole Foods has bulk cocoa/baking chocolate? Other sources are appreciated, especially in Marin/Berkeley. I know the Pasta Shop can be a good bet, but not for bulk cocoa, which I really prefer not to mail-order or buy in tiny cans. TIA
