Save your pity for yourself. Seriously, stiffnecked. We get your point. It is expensive. We understand where you are coming from.

It doesn't bother me one bit.

So take it up with Whole Foods, not us. We like having Whole Foods here. No not everyone can afford it. We get that. Yes there are fat people. We get that. Yes, there are poor people, and poor fat people. We get it all. As I've said before, they can buy plenty of healthy options at Walmart. You don't have to shop at Whole Foods for healthy. Besides, even if Whole Foods was more affordable, there are still plenty of bad food choices there. Just because it's all natural or organic does not mean it's low cal or low fat. You can buy whole fat milk at Whole Foods. You can buy candy at Whole foods. You can buy cakes and pies and cookies and pizza there too. The fat people (of which I'm one) still have to make the right choices.
As for corporate greed, um last time I checked this was a capitalist country. They can make all the money they can.They are in business to make a profit. That would be the goal of most businesses. It's not a charity. If people think they are out of line, they won't shop there. I guess, so far, plenty of people are okay with them being profitable.

You're against corporate greed but a Walmart lover? Save it.

I think the only person that is worried about is stiffnecked. He wants to see them fail, but I don't think that's gonna happen. Whole Foods has been highly successful here on OKC. It's always busy. On weekends it's like combat shopping. The word is they are already looking for a second location.

I'm guessing that's why they built it so close to Nichols Hills. Cause that's where all the rich people live. Sad, sad, sad.
So it's the fault of a grocery store that people are pigs?

Does anybody take responsibility for their actions these days?

Just checked in at Whole Foods. They are still catering to just the 1%'ers. This is a store for rich people. You'd think a health food store would want to make their goods affordable for everyone. Better deals and cheaper prices on the exact same brands at Sunshine Market.
