Respond to Review of Whole Foods Market - Fort Apache
by archure

Review: Open April 5th 2006 at 9:00 AM a NEW Whole Foods Market, on Green Valley Parkway. I was not impressed, they have again reduced vegan items (no more vegan Vit D nor Vit E, except perhaps Solgar Vit E (very expensive), absolutely no Vegan Vitamin A. They don't stock Country Life, Natures Life, Natures Plus, VegLife (no longer carried by Whole Foods). They do stock their own brand, which is over priced (if you use a calculator to determine cost per milligram), but they do have some veg caps. They do stock Tofu & Soy Cheese, Miso, Rice Milk, (used to have Temphe), and on and on. They offered to help me find the items they used to stock, but then realized they no longer carry the items. I said "Wild Oats Markets discontinued stocking vegan items years ago, and now Whole Foods is doing the same", and the lady said (pointing to the guy next to her "He's a Vegan (long pause), and I'm a Vegan too" (yea, thats the ticket, a vegan, yea, thats it, were both vegans), (long pause), "....and half the store staff are vegans too" (big smile). When the cashier asked if I got everything I wanted, I explained that Whole Foods no longer stocks vegan vitamins, and she was not so kind. I rarely go to Whole Foods, but when I do, I rush in, grab what I need and can afford (not much), and get out quick (they don't like vegetarians, most of Whole Foods)
