I shop at Whole Foods because I feel confident that the quality is good and because for most of the things I buy, the prices are lower. Yesterday I bought Organic Cherry Juice (a quart) for $4.69; it costs $5.95 for non-organic at my local grocery store. I bought Pomegran...moreate Juice (a quart) for $4.99; it costs $9.95 at my local store. I bought a box of organic oat bran cereal for $2.29; it doesn't exist at my local store, but regular cereal runs between $4 and $5. I bought half an ounce of organic dried parsley for 42 cents; the regular dried parsley at my local store is between $3 and $4 for half an ounce. New crop apples were 99 cents a pound and I could buy as many or as few as I wanted. My local store sells them occasionally at that price but you have to buy a minimum of 5 pounds. Whole Foods brand milk is cheaper than the store brands elsewhere. The Whole Foods brand canned foods are comparable in price to Walmart. I fail to see why anyone would shop anywhere else -- except that there are not enough Whole Foods stores around for everyone. It's always crowded. view less
I love Trader Joe's! Fresh quality produce, more organic options and cheaper than your regular grocery store. Not as many options as say Whole Foods but definitely worth a trip. Non-intimidating. Check out their frozen items...Their appetizers are awesome for get-togethers....more I won't shop anywhere else now. I have also lost 30 lbs since I switched grocers. view less
I am recommending this store for the fact that I don't have to wait in long lines before I can get my items paid. Truly wonderful.
