Too Expensive and rude staff

Posted on 03 / 15 / 2014

If you wish to shop for health food, organics, supplements and vitamins I would suggest Lifestyle Markets or Apple Ingredients Health Store as the prices at Planet Organic are nearly double to these outstanding venues.

I also find their layout very cramped, the staff is not very helpful, the cashier that helped me was rude and spaced out, if there is a return they have to speak to their manager which is frustrating. I find their deli section very bland after all these years in service they've never changed it, not very fresh, and not very tasty compared to Lifestyles or Apple, they should change their menu, make it wow, or at least get a juice bar or better coffee/tea section at the deli.

Pros: unique products but too expensive
Cons: too expensive, rude staff, bland deli

Overall, it's an expensive place that carries products which, for the most part, can be found at a regular grocery store or Lifestyles for a fraction of the cost.

With that said, there are a few interesting things that I've only managed to find here. It's certainly not a store I would make a regular grocery trip to, but every once in awhile it's worth having a look around for something unique.

Pros: organic, hard-to-find items
Cons: expensive!

Shopped here for the first time (just moved to Victoria) & was delighted at the choices but not so enthused about their prices. I will definitely seek out other markets nearby for my next shopping adventure, but it's good to know of their variety of veg offerings -- esp the deli case of reasonably priced, ready to eat items (try the pakoras & chutney... mmm!) Bulk items seemed expensive.

Pros: variety, clean, friendly staff
Cons: expensive

Overpirced much?

I have recently moved here from Edmonton where we also have a Planet Organic. Overall they are both overpriced but more so the one here in Victoria and the selection and options are less and not that impressive. It is funny to come from a meat and potatoes, oil happy city and have less selection and pay more for organic and healthy fare. Not that impressed. I do like some of the options for a quick snack or dinner from the deli section but highly recommend shopping and buying everyday items especially vitamins and such from Lifestyles. I have found some exact products there for $10 dollars cheaper!

Selection at your brands and interesting finds. A must...Nana's Cookies! I can't believe they stock these! The deli food is great...a lot of options such as sugar free etc...
This is where I shopped when I was living in the center of Victoria..well worth the drive!

Pros: Varitey , Top brands, Parking!!
