I would rate this Whole Foods as a grocery store, not as a primary source of organic foods. I assume their target market is the demographic which will spend more money for better quality foods, and more natural products, perhaps competing with Kowalskis. This Whole Foods does, for me & my personality, ranks at having the friendliest staff of grocery stores. As a small store, it stocks what the people here purchase. The meat department could easily be the best reason to shop here rather than anywhere else I know. If looking for cheaper, then Target, Rainbow, or Cub Foods are likely better options. If looking for more organic choices (many at whole foods are not), then one of the many food coops is likely a better option.

Wow! Such negative comments for this little store! Let me start off by stating that I'm from the Chicago area and am accustomed to MUCH larger stores (complete with wine sections, gelato bars, and coffee shop) however I have been proud to call this tiny store my local grocer for close to a decade now. For those expecting a decent sized Whole Foods, try out the Minnetonka, Minneapolis, or Edina store, as those are much more accommodating of customers expecting a more leisurely experience during the busier times of day and weekends. After reading some comments, I headed back to my tiny Whole Foods on my daily trip and decided to ask some questions regarding the things I've read. First off, the cashiers have always been upbeat and extremely friendly (although perhaps a bit more "efficient" during their lunch and dinner rushes), and I've never had a rude experience. As far as unloading your own basket, it is something Whole Foods asks you to do to cut down on the frequency of repetitive stress injuries for the cashiers (Google it, it's a very real issue.) These people are doing the same task (quite well, I might add) close to 40 hours a week while providing friendly service AND bagging your groceries. Is this really what's going to make or break an overall good experience? Take the good with the bad and keep rolling along. The cashier also pointed out two signs at every register asking you to please unload your own basket. The cashier shouldn't have had to ask in the first place, although I'm sure they were more respectful than previously reported. The thing to remember is that this is possibly the only real "neighborhood" Whole Foods in the Twin Cities. It was the first of its kind and is still sitting there 17+ years later. Say what you wish, but they're clearly doing something right. Even if I'm fighting through the throngs of customers that crowd this popular St. Paul grocer, I've still been coming here for years and will continue to do so as long as I'm stationed in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Try taking the time to converse with the staff next time, they're actually very personable and speedy. Perhaps they're just doing a good job.

I am glad that someone else wrote a positive review for this little "neighborhood" Whole Foods. I was ready to drive the extra 20 minutes to go to the Edina store because of the reviews, I am glad I did not. This store is much smaller than I am used to but does have everything I need. The other reviews are right that it doesn't have the "extras," like a hot food bar, gelato station, etc. It is just in a much smaller space. I have been shopping here for almost a year and never had an issue with anyone helping me find a product, at the cash register, or with any of the workers. Don't avoid this store because of the other reviews, it is the same quality WF that you will find else where.

I do not want to come across as racist. Although I am a Caucasian woman both my cousin and my niece are married to wonderful African American individuals. But I was groped by an African American person at this store. He turned out to be an employee here! I did not realize this at first because his appearance was so unkempt. When my boyfriend spoke with the manager about it later the same day, he was stonewalled. We contacted the main company and had them launch an investigation. They followed up to inform us that they could not get a confession out of this person, and the interview / interrogation was difficult, because he has a history of mental problems! Not sure what the Whole Foods internal procedure is supposed to be here. But I cannot recommend or return to this store.

The store is small and very crowded. The customers are rude to the point that we couldn't find a place to put our baby in the cart because we kept getting pushed aside. One of the employees in the front sighed and glared as we finally just stopped and did it. Other employees were very nice but overall it was overpriced and annoying. Not going to go back.
