Is "Whole Paycheck" an unfair nickname? What's been your experience?

Yea, I love Whole Foods but don't shop there because it is too expensive. Costco carries Buffalo and Organic Beef.

Yes, it's much more expensive. You get better quality products though.

Their housebrand foods are comparable to food prices in other stores; however, trying to buy meat there for a family of 4 was tough. A pack of chicken was running me close to $15 whereas I might spend $5 for it at regular store and in that same regular store, the organic pack might cost me $8.00.

Yes. It's probably closest to Publix which I've found to be the most expensive standard grocery chain in America.

What's King Kullen, Pathmark, Walbaums, or Shop-Rite?

Ah, regionalism.

Whole Foods is one of the greatest corporate scams going for the granola/lefty crowd. Please keep shopping there. Please?
