Rejoice, Whole Foods Prices Are Dropping
Anyone that frequents Whole Foods knows that while the products they offer are amazing for the fact that they don’t contain artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners, and hydrogenated fats, the supermarket chain is also known for burning a hole in your pockets.
Seriously, try not spending an entire paycheck for at least two weeks worth of groceries. We’ve tried it and it’s tough. But that is no longer the case. Now that Whole Foods has been acquired by Amazon, the partnership means less friction on our wallets. Or simply, lower prices. And we’re not talking about later down the road, we mean immediately.
On Thursday (Aug. )both companies announced in a press release that Amazon’s acquisition would become official on Monday, August 28, and shoppers would see immediate results in stores. According to their statement, these items will be cheaper on day one:
“Starting Monday, Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices on a selection of best-selling staples across its stores, with much more to come. Customers will enjoy lower prices on products like Whole Trade bananas, organic avocados, organic large brown eggs, organic responsibly-farmed salmon and tilapia, organic baby kale and baby lettuce, animal-welfare-rated 85% lean ground beef, creamy and crunchy almond butter, organic Gala and Fuji apples, organic rotisserie chicken, 365 Everyday Value organic butter, and much more.”
As time goes on, there will be more changes rolling out. And if you have an Amazon Prime membership, you’ll reap the benefits of special discounts and other perks as Whole Foods will be treating Prime like a customer rewards program.
