Whole (pacheck) Foods
Posted on 02 / 17 / 2012
While you will spend more shopping at this market, you will get quality and have very knowledgable people there for your assistance.
If you want to sample anything from the store, they are very willing to open the package for you. This is great especially if you are a new vegetarian and trying to build your pantry. The worst thing for someone new to a vegetarian life style is to spend a bunch of money on something you "just can't stomach".
The market has a little bit of everything; food, sundries, bakery, flower/plants ... just about everything. Even ready to eat/dine-in areas (sushi too!). Can't say that all Whole Foods have this, but our local one does.
Returns are accepted without problems. Only had to do once due to packaging damaged and food spoiled (didn't see before leaving store). No problem even without receipt.
Very open and well lit. Easy shopping, and easy to overspend. Vegetarian/Vegan cheese, "meats" Uff Da if you have a family. Keep a budget and explore.
Parking is in their own lot and usually not a problem.
