You can't deny that Whole Foods is full of delicious items that tempt a visitor as soon as they enter the store. The produce section alone gets my stomach growling. While I love Whole Foods selection, I can't afford to buy everything there. I must be picky, opting to buy items that are imposible to find elsewhere. Whole Foods cheese counter is a beautiful thing. I happily hand over a large part of my paycheck to them. I do skip over the produce section, espeically during the summer months with the farmer's markets offer a fresh selection. There are some bargins to be found. I enjoy kombucha and have found Whole Foods offers several selections that are cheaper there then anywhere else I've looked.
This is the smaller QFC in Redmond. The larger store is near the Bella Bottega theatre. I like this QFC because I can get through it quicker than the larger one. There are fewer people waiting at the deli counter. They just added a fresh sushi bar, which I really like. The downside is you often have to wait a long time if you need to make a transaction at the customer service desk, since they do not have anyone actively manning the desk.
Great products and great selection. Food to Go options are abundant. Staff is friendly and always willing to help
