In a case that will only reinforce its reputation as "Whole Wallet" or "Whole Paycheck," Whole Foods Market got hit with an $800,000 fine this week after an investigation found it was overcharging California customers.

We don't have a Whole Foods in my area,are they really THAT costly? Glad they were caught and fined.

Yep!
As I mentioned before, this going to happen more and more as Retail companies cut back on full time associates.
I shop at Trader Joes in La Mesa and Love shopping there.

I thought overcharging was assumed common knowledge by everyone who steps foot in those stores. That's their business model.

...and also why they are mainly located along the ih 5 corridor on North Coastal County. Eating health does not have to be expensive, it takes having more time and patience than money.

Whole foods is really more about marketing than it is health.

Well, if it's on par with the Big 3 union stores that would be simple.

What is the legal definition of "overcharging"? Charging more than something is "worth" (more than you'd have to pay elsewhere) is perfectly legal. Charging customers more at the register than is advertised or marked on the package is illegal. It's a free country… caveat emptor...

I did the same thing at the one in Hillcrest, and totally agree with you.
