our go-to grocery shop - Edit

I gotta say that I love this place. Has wonderful, fully organic produce, that is generally reasonable compared with the non organic of other shops. The vitamin/beauty product section is extensive and great. Really fun times roaming the isles and find new delicious things. Many many many vegan options. The only two things to gripe about is the return policy, which is non existent, but luckily I haven't had to use it and the rewards program is a little skimpy for the amount you have to spend to get a reward. Of note, there are currently 2 locations, the larger of which is on 1st and 72nd.

Pros: right around the block, selection, fresh produce

Cons: return policy, rewards program

Healthy convenience - Edit

This place is near work for me so I shop here frequently. They have an extensive selection of food to suit almost anyone's dietary needs. Me personally, I haven't experienced any rudeness from the staff at all while shopping here but I've always went there to pick up what I need. I've never called in an order to them. If you are in the area and need organic groceries or food items to suit specific diets (ie: vegan, gluten-free) I'd recommend this place.

I USED to shop here all the time - the old staff was so helpful, warm, accommodating, I can't say enough good things... HOWEVER, this place is a total nightmare now, The new staff can't get orders straight. Every time I have ordered food in, I have received some items that were incorrect, such as sodium free food when I didn't ask for that, frozen dinners food that weren't gluten free like what I specified, etc. Because of this problem, I asked the woman I was placing the order with to please go over the order with me. She barked at me, "You're being rude! I know my work!" This was AFTER she made me call her back twice because she was busy and sighed deeply when I tried to place an order, telling me, "It's not a good time for me again, but, fine, I'll take your order". I asked her how exactly I was being rude to her? She handed the phone to some gross man who worked there who sounded like he drooled and called her "honey" who shouted at me - yes, shouted - that if my order was ever wrong, it was my fault because I must have not told them what I wanted. I informed him that I did in fact tell them what I wanted and he SCREAMED at me, "YOU DON'T LISTEN!" I told him he sounded crazy and the new staff needs etiquette lessons. They are some seriously personality challenged social misfits that work there. If you like the DMV, shop at a Matter of Health! I told them that I would never shop there again and cancelled my order. Venture at your own risk!

Pros: Healthy food

Cons: Staff, Staff, Staff
