The food prepare in Lincoln Nebraska store is salty, spicy, fat without nutritional standards or gourmet style. I complained many times in the store however the response is always the same, "Food is already prepare." How your company contribute with people health styles? Why you don't have nutrition specialist per store to ensure quality of food, consistency on preparation and variety. My family chose your company for health concerns and everything suppose to be healthy.
Lack of respect, means telling me, no they did not carry a product which I tried to return or did not sell a product which I wanted to buy. When I make my own inquiries, and they are wrong, they offer me compensation, but too late for me. Obviously they are lying to begin with and do not take the trouble to be precise, since at the end two times when I verified what they said was incorrect, then they conceded. Third recent issue, I brought back sunglasses, not the first pair I got here, and same problem as with the others: they peel. The date of purchase in one year but there is no reason why the covering should peel off. All I wish is that they contact the company they purchase from and get satisfaction for the consumer. Or stop carrying this brand. For some reason I feel like this store is pro people and want it to be better, in spite of the big corporate take over.
Purchased cooked pieces of chicken at Whole Foods store in San Diego, CA, on February 7, 2018 that literally made my tongue burn and swell up and still, to this date, hurts. Days later I called Whole Foods and reported what happened and questioned whether anyone else complained. They told me that Whole Foods would get back to me. No one called me back and I am still not well. I went for extreme testing this week to see what is causing the diarrhea that is still occurring and my tongue, which is still hurting. Worse is that my adult daughter, after spending days with her, now has diarrhea too, for over a week, and my husband, whom I kissed, has a swollen tongue since February 7, 2018.
Not the first time I experienced buying rancid or stale food at the Whole Foods in Wellington Florida. Last Friday I purchased 365 products. The White Bread was stale. The Swiss cheese was so old the cheese was stiff and breaking up in my hands. I have never experience this problem at any other Whole Foods. Only at Wellington. Here is the problem. The Wellington area is not populated enough to warrant a store. The store should have never been built in Wellington, an affluent but sparsely populated area. Where’s the crowds? Where’s replacing outdated food?
I shop at the Roseville Ca store. Recently I bought some apples that were in a bag. When I got home I realized half were rotten. I took them back for a refund. I went to get another bag and most were also rotten. They don't bother to check. Today I bought some of the cookies they make there. They were hard and stale. Place has gone downhill.

I shop at Whole Foods because it is pleasurable and in my neighborhood. If suddenly customer service becomes toxic, I won't be there again! There are too many options. Sorry it was bought by Amazon, that was a negative for me.
I like Whole Foods for the variety of different items, their salad bar, bakery and such. I enjoy the wholesome variety of foods. I love their plants and herbs too.
We only eat organic, so having a Whole Foods near us is a huge help. Their prices aren't that bad. They always get veggies in bulk for us to juice and have been very reliable with this.
While some of the help is not helpful, most of them are. I go to the Whole Foods store for specific items that I can not always find elsewhere. Their dairy section is very good and the prices are surprisingly low. I like organic food but not if the price is outlandish. Many things like Avocados and Bananas which are peeled do not need to be organic. They are also not items that need to be sprayed to raise them anyway. The selections in many departments are really good, better than the regular big grocers.
I love Whole Foods because they have the greatest variety of foods and they allow you to taste almost any food/beverage they sell. The foods look so much fresher than in other grocery stores.
The Whole Foods store is clean and well stocked with good canned, freshly wrapped foods. Nice selections in every aisle. Neither of us drink alcohol. We like what we see in each aisle, good selections.
Anytime I need anything organic and fresh - Whole Foods is my choice. A bit pricey but worth knowing it's good for me and non-GMO. They also offer coupons and great sales.
Whole Foods has really fresh produce and fresh meats. I really like their salad bar. Good customer service. Some items are reasonable and a variety of organic foods and vegetables. I like the coupons.
Origin of some products are not truthful. Ingredients in some products are not truthful. Some products are overpriced. Ready to eat products are often not freshly made on site. Seafood that is deeply discounted are often smelly and not fresh. This Whole Foods market hides behind its strong brand for organic and quality groceries. However, the food offerings are not always the best and often are sub-standard to compared to other market choices in the area. BEWARE!
I actually shop at the Whole Foods store since I have many food allergies. I generally purchase hard to find products from other grocery stores in my area, and I do appreciate that they do carry them. The people who work there are very nice and most of them are very knowledgeable. The store where I shop is very clean, including the restrooms as well. The biggest problem I have with this store is the hot/cold food area. People tend to eat from them while taking food from them, not cool and not appropriate!!
I love that they offer organic food but I don't like that some of their organic goods have too much sodium and sugar. Sugar causes obesity and other health problems.
I find Whole Foods organic produce just as good as some other major retailers, but you really have to shop around. Whole Foods is basically consistent in their quality, but also basically consistent in their jacked up prices.
I stopped at Whole Foods Westwood, near UCLA campus and tried to return an unopened box of tea which was plainly on the shelf and in plain sight near the registers. However the nasty gentleman asked me how long I've had it and I said it doesn't matter... see... it's on your shelf... scowling he said next time I had to have a receipt and that I would only receive credit which was made into cash because the computer refused to cooperate. Outside a lady was being harassed by the cop with a gun problem... that she stole her salad bar food even after being told by staff it was a food replacement. So he called the cops on her after trying to make her leave the outdoor dining area. Disgusting store.
Whole Foods is great for my son and daughter-in-law who need organic foods. I like its mission. Trader Joe and Whole Foods are very similar in my mind.
The prices at Whole Foods are very expensive. They should make an effort to lower their prices and let customers know of their sales. People will buy more of their products if they make it reasonable.
Almost every food and combination you can think of. Example I like popcorn they have sea salt no salt and many other flavors. I Like the way the store is set up. The store is equipt to all nationalities also vegetarian, vegans and meat eaters. You can even eat there. They have an area set up with seats and tables so you can relax and eat.
Clean stores, variety all at high quality, bulk food offerings, delicious prepared offerings. We especially like the "family meal". Knowledgeable staff, friendly but not too much at checkout. Overall a professional demeanor.
Whole Foods has everything that I need to make healthy choices. Their produce is great, their customer service is wonderful, and they have the most healthy choices of all of the supermarkets. Many of the things that they buy in great quantities are less expensive than at your every day grocers.
Staff is really helpful and knowledgeable whether you are there in person or calling in. If you need vegetables chopped or meat sliced they are very accommodating.
I'm so disappointed at the change since Amazon took over. Many things I'm used to purchasing are out of stock. This is becoming more frequent, if I cannot count on doing my shopping and finding the quality and brands I've researched and desire I will need to search for another market. Today I'm going to investigate my local co-op where I'm hoping to find the quality of concern for organic sourcing I've enjoying for years at Whole Foods.
I like the Whole Foods store because, it offers a variety of organic and locally sourced foods. The customer service is great and they're always willing to accommodate me.
Whole Foods is overpriced but you can find products that the regular grocery stores don't have. Their quality isn't as good as it used to be but it surpasses everyone else. Fish selection has really declined. Their bakery use to be excellent but it is not that good anymore.
Great variety of wholesome foods and vegetables and fruits. And their vitamins and supplements are awesome. Customer service is exceptional, always enjoy shopping there.
The fruit and vegetables are all fresh and good condition. The staff on the floor behind most counters, and at checkout are very helpful, patient and pleasant. There were very few overall who weren't.
I love this store. It's full of beautiful organic produce and other products and a large selection of cheese and delicious items. The meat department is very good with large variety of meats, and the chicken salad is the best I have ever tasted. The people who work here are very pleasant and professional.
