I went last night. Nothing to see here. Still spent double the amount of any other store.

Same here. I go there specifically to be *organic* AND *Made in USA*. They try any fast ones and I'm done.

*LOL* Let the masses run there and see. As I said, $1.20 savings from my grocery bill won't be much to write home about. Can't even get an organic espresso with that from Le Pain Quotidien. Would still need at least over $2.00 to add to that.

I visited the Yonkers store yesterday. Got some good deals on fresh fish. Salmon at $10/lb, Tilapia at $7/lb which is on par or very close to Stop n Shop rates and very rare to find fish at this rate at Whole Foods absent the occasional sale. Eggs were down by about 50 cents a dozen so that was nice to see. Organic fuji and gala apples were $2/lb.

Overall, it wasn't a huge change, but I'm glad to see fish, eggs and some vegetable prices come down. I tend to shop at Whole Foods for items like fresh vegetables and fish because I find the overall quality is better. I'll definitely visit more often if the prices on these items stays discounted.

On a general note, the store seemed a bit more disheveled (especially in the fruit/veg section), but I imagine this is due to the influx of new shoppers looking to take advantage of lower prices.

Can avoid that and simply go as soon as the store opens or shortly after when things are just being put out. Often times, I go after work and walk from my office to a Whole Foods near me and by then most of what is left is picked over or whatever depending on the location.

Yes, we wouldn't want the unwashed masses to over run WF.

Doesn't surprise me one bit! They are so high I couldn't see them slashing enough to make a big difference anyway!
