the employees never smile and are grumpy. The deli people at the register are crabby and short with you. I asked for some sweetener for my coffee and they told me they did not want to put it out because someone steals it. So they finally gave me some then whipped it away into a safe hiding place. very strange. the area where they keep the half and half, etc, is messy and dirty. the microwave is not clean. the holders for the creamers are cracked. you have to wait in line so that your hot deli food turns cold, then you have to use the microwave so for all that money you spend you are really eating leftovers if it has to be reheated. when you pay there they are unhappy, and the person making the drinks gets 'put off'. lots of attitude there and also in the checkout counters. happy place, don't think so. i with it would change for the better.

This store used to be convenient, even if it was expensive. Now it's just expensive. If you're looking for something, there is no one in the store that can help you. And if you do find an employee, you'll have to drag him or her from their oh-so-important personal conversation or cellphone call -- and then, he or she certainly can't understand you.
Basically, if you want rude service, better go to Food 4 Less. At least you're getting what you pay for.

stopped at the whole foods to pick up some items and grab a quick lunch. What is up with no one employee in the whole store speaking a word of English? oh, well, my Spanish is quite good, so I ordered for both me and my friend. Still no luck. They don't listen. No mayonnaise, they slather it on anyway. The bathroom is filthy, the coffee bitter, there is no sugar out, no milk, no............... The staff stands around and chats all day long. When you ask them where the pasta aisle is, they don't know!!!! No one knows anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a premium outlet in West LA? Fuggedaboutit.

From The Organic Consumer Association:
In recent weeks, the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) has urged the world's largest organic and ""natural"" retailer and wholesaler, Whole Foods Market and United Natural Foods, Inc. respectively, to prioritize certified organic food and products, support farmers and manufacturers' transition to organic production, and to stop advertising or promoting so-called ""natural"" products (greenwashed
conventional products) as if they were ""almost as good as"" are ""almost organic.""
Since our founding in 1998, OCA has fought to integrate organic and Fair Trade principles, to protect the rights of workers, both in the U.S. and abroad, throughout the natural and organic supply chain, from farm workers and food processing workers, to truck drivers, warehouse packers and retail clerks in grocery stores, coffee houses, and restaurants. OCA believes that Fair Trade, health, and sustainability are the inseparable components of an organic food and farming system and a green economy. This is why the OCA and our allies are challenging industry leaders, Whole Foods and UNFI, as well as the entire organic and green community, to implement a domestic Organic and Fair Trade code of conduct that assures workers' rights are respected.
Though Whole Foods and UNFI have continually cultivated an image of ""socially responsibility,"" the facts are quite the opposite. The OCA and allies have chronicled numerous examples of labor abuses in the organic market, Whole Food's poor social responsibility record, lack of real support for farm workers, and mere lip service to support small farmers.
UNFI, for its part, has resolutely opposed its employees being represented at every turn. When UNFI drivers in Rocklin, CA sought to organize, they sent their CEO in to intimidate workers into voting against the union. In Auburn, WA, where the warehouse workers and drivers are union, UNFI has opened a new distribution center a short distance away and is transferring work there, starting with Whole Foods work, and UNFI has refused to agree to any language which would provide real protection for the Auburn workers’ jobs. In the Eastern US, UNFI bought Millbrook Distributing and almost immediately closed that company’s two unionized facilities to move the work to non union facilities.
Finally, Whole Foods has joined Costco and Starbucks to erode the popular support for the Employee Free Choice Act, or EFCA, which would level the playing field for workers looking to form unions. EFCA is more important than ever, considering that a recent Cornell University study found that ""of 1,004 union organizing drives, employers threatened to close plants in 57 percent of the campaigns and threatened to cut wages and benefits in 47 percent."" Additionally, the study found that employers ""fired pro-union workers in 34 percent of the campaigns.""
Take action today and send the Whole Foods and UNFI's CEOs a message that organic means means supporting workers' rights!

Whole foods is a great grocery shopping experience. The fruits, vegetables, deli selection, soups, pasta, meat, fish, cheeses, etc. are fresh and diverse. Don't go here on an empty stomach because you'll end up buying hundreds of dollars worth of food -- wait, maybe that's the point! Try the Autumn Puree in the deli section -- it's my new favorite. Also, the salad bar is cheap and beats having to chop all the vegies yourself! They've also got a good selection of flowers. This place is more expensive than the larger chains but worth every penny.

I love this store! It is conveniently located, and all the food is fresh! They have the best fruit I have tasted in LA. Also they have the best selection of beer I have seen in LA, along with a staff prepared to answer questions and make recommendations.
