Absolutely you should.

Non-official position...
It's a Yield sign and if there's traffic you should stop behind the marked Stop line

O.C.G.A. 40-6-72 . Stop signs and yield signs
(a) Preferential right of way may be indicated by stop signs or yield signs as authorized in Code Section 32-6-50.
(c) The driver of a vehicle approaching a yield sign shall, in obedience to such sign, slow down to a speed reasonable for the existing conditions and, if required for safety to stop, shall stop at a clearly marked stop line or, if there is no stop line, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if there is no crosswalk, at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering it. After slowing or stopping, the driver shall yield the right of way to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard during the time such driver is moving across or within the intersection or junction of roadways. If such a driver is involved in a collision with a vehicle in the intersection after driving past a yield sign without stopping, such collision shall be deemed prima-facie evidence of his failure to yield the right of way.

I'm in agreement with Falls. I always stop since it's s busy parking lot and there's always traffic.

For some reason, I just now noticed that it's marked both, even though I have come through many times.

Shopping center parking lot.
Neither then. BTW, I was just at that Whole Foods this evening. Judging from the shadows, I'd say you were there at about 11am. :)

These are two different traffic control devices.
First stop. Period. Then you must yield to traffic.
Likewise with "right on red" with a yield, you must
stop first for the red, then yield to traffic. Often,
this is used when traffic from the opposite direction
has a left turn arrow (and hence, right of way). You
can't see their arrow, so the yield tells you someone
else has right of way.
