I live in Fishers Indiana, I wanted to let you know that your "Beyond Burgers" are a big hit in this area, but only one of your stores carry them(Location 86Th Street in Norma). that location sell out quickly. I would suggest that your other location also carry them, there would be a big big seller at those locations as well. I would also suggest that you consider a store in the Fishers In area, I believe it would be a big hit as well. My Name is Jerome Chambers, my personal email address is (hidden)

I have been shopping at Whole Foods in New York City since the first store opened.

At your new Bryant Park store, they are charging .50 cents more than any of the other stores in Manhattan on bakery items.

When I asked why, I was told that because of their higher operating costs, they need to charge more for MUFFINS, SCONES, and POPOVERS.

I have never in my life encountered such an inane answer. These stores are within 20 blocks of each other.

Does Macy's charge more in one store over another. This is plain bad business and leads to people like me NOT TRUSTING YOU. Maybe I'm being overcharge on other items?

Please, someone has to address this ridiculous issue.

Attn: John Mackey: I read in Dr. Mercola's email to me that:

Amazon recently announced its intention to acquire Whole Foods Market for $13.7 billion

Just as Amazon changed the book industry by forcing the entire supply chain to cut costs, the organic food industry may now face the same challenges, thereby ensuring the deterioration of organic food quality Whole

I worked for Whole Foods in Houston in the 80's and would not like to see Amazon sell out what you brought to us. I'm an author and when I found out they were selling my books without my permission and I was not getting paid for them to do so I asked them to stop. They have not and will not. There must be others who want to buy Whole Foods who are more reputable than Amazon. Besides I know they are headed for a down fall.

I agree with you. My wart sank when I read an article about the sale of Whole foods.

Question is: How do 'We, the People' force our market system to change?

To whom it may concern;

My fiance and I have been shopping at your midtown location for years. It is apart of our Sunday ritual to get groceries and have yet to have an issue at that store. Yesterday 7/2/2017 we decided it would be a nice change to walk the pier and go downtown.

When we went into line to check out the green light indicated we go to register 16 and a friendly employee reiterated what the machine had said, so thats the register we went to. We unloaded our cart and the first words out of the cashiers mouth in a very brash aggressive tone were "You need to move that closer to me." My fiance and I looked at each other wondering why this cashier was rude out of the gate but didn't put much mind to it. As we are discussing what items we should lump together our cashier blurts out very rude "This line is for 16 items or less. Ya'll shouldn't even be here." My fiance says he didn't see any indication this was limited to that and he said if you prefer we can go to another line. Again, she lashed out "there is a sign right there." This back and forth went on for over a minute and was getting more and more intense.

At this point I wasn't going to allow my fiance to be disrespected and verbally assaulted by a cashier as her voice was getting higher and she seemed to be leaning into my fiance very threatening.

At this point I asked her for a manager and she scoffs "yeah, I got one." i then had to proceed to clarify I would like to speak with her. I had taken the manager to the side to discuss my problems with her. When I returned to my cart she had continued being rude to my fiance to the point we had to request a new cashier.

Unfortunately, while Jasmine the customer service manager was finishing our transaction our original cashier sat at the end of the register and proceeded TO MOCK US. She was laughing loudly and making comments regarding us right to her peers right in front of us.

Now I have worked in customer service settings and my fiance is a VP of a large company and we do understand that basics of providing a good service. This experience was humiliating, degrading, and embarrassing! We don't pay a premium for a cashier to sit and mock us. I am not sure why she felt the need to lash out on us, maybe a bad day, maybe she didn't like our face, maybe it was racist in nature. Whatever the reason you shouldn't allow your staff to treat your customers in such a rude and degrading manner. We have always had a wonderful experience at your midtown location but this experience has made us start considering going to brooklyn fare and abandoning your establishment all together.

Whole Foods is a very racist company with a Racist culture in management even though they appear to hire minorities so it doesn't seem this way but from my experience and many others people of color are almost expected to be mistreated without reason. Stay away from Whole Foods.

Whole foods is known for your quality. This amazon purchase was a horrible idea. Please don't close your stores. While mail order may work for some people there are more of us that want to choose our own produce, meats, fish chests and bakery goods. Mail order is not for every one. This was a bad idea. There are so few good food markets left!

I am at Whole Foods almost daily; Cherry Creek when I need to for variety but most pleasantly at the Capitol Hill store at 11th and Ogden. This is a low key, friendly, convenient neighborhood grocer. The store holds neighborhood events. And it is closing. Now that you are part of Amazon, deeper pockets, I hope you will reconsider. Even making it a 365 store would work. Union a Station is NOT an alternative. It may be close in miles but is worlds away. Downtown is crazy to drive in to and parking and traffic are always a mess. Clientele in Cap Hill is young, elderly, gay and straight, able bodied and handicapped, close to Cheesman Park, and parking is easy. We all love this store.

Ihave loved Whole Foods for years! i waited a long time for our local store to be built and opened.

Now I hear that you are entering into an agreement with Amazon. Surely you are aware that Amazon, led by CEO Jeff Bezos, continues to advertise on Breitbart News! The biggest white supremacist newspaper in the nation.

As much as I love Whole Foods I beg of you not to align yourself with Amazon ( a company where I have done 90% of all my purchases for at least the last 10 years) I will not go back to them and I will not go back to whole Foods if you are not repulsed enough by this info to reject any agreement with Amazon.

I love whole foods I go as often as my wallet allows. Two things; when is your Las Colinas location in Irving, TX going to open? Very frustrating, and second your prices are way too high, I would shop all the time but can't afford it. Love love your store.

I would like for Whole Foods Market to find a location here in Florence, KY there is a nice development going on off Mall Road with view from interstate 71/75 S there is a Planet Fitness, Dave and Busters, Outback was just built, Costco, Crossroads Church. I would love an option other than Kroger there are at least 4 counties and part oF Eastern Indiana that would be possible customers.
