Everything sold is standard Whole Foods fare, but didn't appreciate the cashiers. The only thing they said to me was "hi" - spent most of the time flirting with the girl bagger... who was slooooowly bagging items. Go to Berkeley Bowl instead, if you're in this part of town.
I strongly disapprove of Whole Foods' politics (as judged by their actions, not their words) and way of doing business. An example of the adage "Power corrupts".
One extra star for the extremely kind staff, who are helpful and nice while putting up with company policies such as granting deeper health care discounts to employees with a more normative body mass index.
Go to Andronico's or the Berkeley Bowl instead. Both have better food for less money, and both are local. Whole Foods is a giant, overpriced chain built for the sole purpose of sucking money out of us Berkeley types and destroying competition. I'll admit though...i'll patronize them when I'm out of state, their displays are immaculate, and they make, by far, the best supermarket sushi.
Did you know that Whole Foods practices religious discrimination? We have been told that our local store here in Berkeley, CA does not want our business anymore because we come into the store in dhoti, sari and tilak and we greet people with a friendly "Hare Krishna". I'm hoping that my devotee friends will band together on this issue and stop shopping at Whole Foods. #wholefoods
