And , it's based in the Carolinas-what more could you want?
I beg your pardon Whole Foods shoppers are HARDLY granola set. All they want is quality foods that you guys buy at the regular grocery stores WITHOUT the HARMFUL additives and preservatives and TOTAL RE-ENGINEERING - AGAINST NATURE - OF THE FOOD. More upscale gourmet items also happen to be included.

For example, you'll find only safe canned and jarred foods and only safe packaged foods. You can buy cake mixes that DON'T contain irradiated wheat. You can buy fresh or frozen pizza WITHOUT cancer causing nitrates and nitrites in the pepperoni. If you prefer to make your own, the sausage meat in the deli does NOT contain Nitrites and Nitrates. The deli does not also use the VIRUS that was FDA approved to "preserve" deli meat a few years ago that I bet all the regular stores use---that is until their regular shoppers like YOU WAKE UP and MAKE THEM CHANGE THEIR POLICIES.

Back to the WHOLESOME SAFE junk food at Whole Foods--which all-- by the way taste MUCH BETTER than their chemical laden counter parts. You can find Oreos, Cheetos, Triscuits, Wheat Thins, Pepperidge Farm Stone Wheat Thins counter- parts at Whole Foods--just for starters--- for maybe just a few cents more than your dastardly awful items you are calling food, which are mostly CHEMICALS and other harmful things designed to taste good so you will keep buying them but that are slowly making you or, if not you, most of the shoppers slowly sick with worsening chronic and degenerative condtions whether you want to admit it or not.

Why NOT shop at Whole Foods when you can get organic produce AND THE JUNK FOODS you LOVE without the harmful ingredients for not much more than what you are paying now? Aren't your health and your taste buds worth spending a few dollars more per shopping trip to get safer better tasting food?????

Because I can't afford to, not because I don't want to! I just don't have the money. I only buy my fish and sometimes meat at whole foods, but its just too expensive, plain and simple. If I didn't have a budget to stick by in order to pay my bills then yeah, i'd shop there for everything, but I like my house and my car, so I think i'll stick to paying those bills first and foremost!

I agree with a few of the other posts regarding the great meat selection and sale prices at Bloom. I have found several great deals on quality products there. You just have to shop around regularly. Another thing that helps Bloom seem "different" than other common supermarket names in Greenville (excluding the natural food markets of course) is its better selection of international foods, particularly Indian cuisine.

I beg to differ with anyone who thinks Blooms has good meats. Did you take a close look at the pork which looks like a map there's so much fat going thru it? Sorry, but their meats are horrible. Publix has much better meats and is cheaper.
