Whole Paycheck, not so much

Anyone able to check out the "bargains" since the Amazon takeover of Whole Foods?

Their store in my town is completely on the other side of the metropolis so it is unlikely I will do so.

What I am really wondering is if they may be marking down any of the specialty canned goods. That might be worth the long trip.

The closest Whole Foods is in PA, 45-60 minutes from where I live, so no. For some legal reason, the really good megamarts (Wegmans. Whole Foods) avoid Delaware like the plague.

I have the same situation, the only WF in the Phx area is about an hour drive from where I live. So I've never been there. There was no motivation before when I knew I couldn't afford it and I lived 20 minutes closer. Now it's pretty much an impossibility to get there.

Interesting to see an article with price comparisons between Whole Foods, Publix, Aldi and WalMart. Somehow the WalMart demographic and Whole Paycheck do not seem to blend. What is Bezos really up to?

World domination, I guess.

What article? Still got a link?

I saw one recently saying they didn't lower prices as much as they implied they were. They did the basic stuff but their fancier stuff is still just as expensive.
