Whole Foods announced this week that it is cutting prices. I don’t know what to think about Whole Foods any longer. I used to shop there frequently, but since the takeover by Amazon, it seems to be struggling with figuring out what kind of grocery store it wants to be. Whole Foods is definitely having an identity crisis.

Amazon found out food stores are a whole different animal.

They cut prices to gain customers, as it wasnt as good as hoped.

I dont have a whole foods here, always heard ridiculous prices, and i dont fibd " organic" orange or green beans to be any great thing over others, and tests have borne that out, according to articles i have read.

So no big deal to me.

As long as i am physically able, i will GO do my grocery shopping, need not have substandard food delivered to my door, because someone picked the worst bunch of bananas just to get rid of them. I prefer to pick my own.

Good for you?

Iím not sure why you quoted me above. We werenít in a conversation, and your shopping preferences are, frankly, not my concern.

We use a combination of:

Harmons
Trader Joes
Whole Foods
Sprouts
Natural Grocers
Smiths (subsidiary of Krogers)

All are within 10 min of our house and have different benefits in terms of product selection and/or pricing. Primarily we shop at Sprouts and Smiths for day to day items.

I shop at WF's but I no longer let them scan my Amazon Prime App. I am no longer selling my privacy to Jeff Bezo for 50 cents.

I was agreeing to you stating whole foods is cutting prices.

Thats all.

Nor are your shopping preferences my concern.

Dont get yourshorts in a knot when someone is agreeing with you and then goes on to make other statements. Thats the way the forum works.

Sheesh.
