I checked the Whole Foods website, and there is nothing in development for Green Bay. It looks like a new store is opening in Milwaukee tomorrow, Sept. 20th! The only other Whole Foods in Wisconsin is in Madison.

Default whole foods in green bay, wi?

Today Jan 08, 08 after shopping at Larry's Piggly Wiggly in De Pere,
(near green bay), I unloaded my groceries at home and noticed they were
Whole Food plastic bags? !!!!

I was in Evanston last week and visited Whole Foods
and was told by the cashier that they will not be using
plastic bags soon. The clerk then showed me these cool
80% post consumer grocery bags for sale at $.99. Free
replacements if they ever break.

I doubt the Pig is turning into a Whole Foods, but it
would be great. In the meantime i bet they bought
some discounted plastic bags.

Keep you informed if I find out more.

You don't need Whole Foods. It's overpriced and really the selection is not that good.

If you have a co-op type place in town you're much better off shopping there then Whole Paycheck.

The store sucks.

Wow. Having a bad day or something? Whole Foods is great! They have great quality and carry a selection of unusual, hard to find items. I will grant though, that they can be expensive. Their store here in Madison keeps so busy that it is hard to get into the parking lot. That will be relieved as they are planning a newer larger place a little further west on University ave.

i love whole foods, if you stick to the 365 brands which are the whole foods brands you can end up having a grocery bill very similar to pick n save and the like but the food you get will be so much better. also whole foods produce and meat is ALOT better than any coop especially outpost. have you actually looked at the produce at whole foods after going to outpost? ugh, it will make you never want to get produce there again...and the prices of whole foods produce and other stuff is a lot of times cheaper than outpost. here is proof

Well, I can't speak for the one in Madison, but the one in Milwaukee, while being considerably larger than the current one in Madison, does not do it for me. And the place is always hopping. But I don't judge a store by how busy it is. For me it's selction, price, quality and service.

Here in Milwaukee we have a local chain of co-ops called Outpost. I usually find a better selection and more reasonable prices at Outpost. I don't know how the co-ops in Madison compare to Whole Foods, but for me, shopping at Outpost over Whole Foods is a no-brainer.

And, actually, I'm having a great day. Thanks for asking. I'm having a wonderful day and I think Whole Foods sucks.

Have a great day.

Oh snap! Now you're pulling out the data to prove that Whole Foods is better!

I'll give you that the 365 Brand offers some good deals. I'm not saying that every single item at Whole Foods is overpriced. Would it be nice to have a brand at Outpost like 365? Hell yes. But when I go to Outpost I find that there are more than enough owner's specials to satisfy my desire for good foods without emptying my wallet.

And just what is wrong with Outpost's produce?! It think it's good produce. I shop at the one in Wauwatosa. I take it you shop at the one in Bay View. Fine. But is there really that much of a difference in locations?

Look. Whole Foods is all fine and dandy. I go every once in awhile. But I regularly go to Outpost. If they opened a new Whole Foods next to the Outpost I frequent, I would still shop at Outpost.

All I'm saying is this: if you live in a town that doesn't have a Whole Foods, don't worry about it. If you have a natural foods co-op place like Outpost, then that's all you need. Although competition is good. Reduces prices.
