Respond to Review of Whole Foods Market
Review: When whole foods came to Tampa, I was thrilled and couldn't wait for it to open. However, I was sad to see that it was opening in a part of town that's 30 minutes away from where I live. It's built right on the corner of two major intersections, Dale Mabry and I-275 overpass. The store is big, clean and stocks lots of items. But the prices are just too high for me to justify making regular trips. Their olive bar runs $9.99 per pound and the bulk nuts section is priced a lot higher than our local Nutrition Smart. For those looking for healthy prepared lunches, their deli sections are big and have quite the variety. They sell custom sandwiches, pizza, sushi, salad bar, hot bar, soup and prepared meals. I've only once eaten at their salad bar, so I can't really report on the prepared food. Overall, I think it is great to have a healthy grocery store, but the only people who can afford to shop there regularly would be the folks who have a more disposable income.
