Some Good Things About Whole Foods

For several reasons, I’ve never been a big fan of Whole Foods. (No, everything isn’t organic.)

That being said, I’ve recently started dropping in about once a week, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at some of the things I’ve seen.

Whole Foods has no conscience when it comes to most of its pricing, but, if you are a savvy shopper, deals can be found. From my observation, it seems that every department is usually running a special of the day or week.

For example, two weeks ago I bought flounder filets for $7.99 per pound, a steep discount from the usual price of $12.99. (No, I didn’t get food poisoning.)

I was also very impressed with the mismarked price policy. I bought an item marked $6.49 that rang up at checkout as $6.99. The cashier pointed me to Customer Service, where I was promptly—and with no questions asked—given a full refund for the product. I was only looking for the $0.50, not the $6.99!
