Whole foods is nothing like the overpriced for poor products Stop & Shop. It will be a welcome addition to have some good natural foods available in the area

I love whole foods as much as you can love a grocery store, the food is fresh, and the variety is nothing like a chain grocery store.

Is Whole Foods anything like Trader Joe's?

Yes it has similarities, but it has alot of fresh hot food stations, when you want a fresh hot meal but don't have time to cook, all different ethnicities, it also has a great fish counter.

everyone has failed to mention one key factor. Add 25% to the cost over everything in these stores compared to similar products at a conventional grocery store..

Funny that doesn't seem to bother anybody. Milford needs another grocery store like it needed the Mall to turn into a eye sore- its embarrassing

You don't have to shop there if you don't want to, I have no problem paying for quality, Whole foods does not carry all the "commercial foods" so I don't see the comparison.
It would be like comparing Scribners Resturant to Long John Silvers, they are not in the same league.

It's going to be where Wayside Furniture used to be, on the Post Road across from Dakota's Steak House (although I don't think it's called that anymore, if it's still open), in the new mall area there. Right before you get to Costco. On the same side.

Wow, the crackers strike again!

I am very happy to pay more for food that is fresh and organic and raised in more humane conditions.

I expect that local from Shelton and Shortline Cutie will be hustling on over to Aldi. Have fun opening your canned food.

You will love Aldi's, When I lived in CT I used to go to the Aldi's located in Torrington, CT. And I was so delighted when I found there was one here in Iowa. Trust me and don't forget to bring your own bags.

Take a left off the highway and it's in the 17th strip mall on your left, can't miss it.

Both you and Donna are far more enlightened than those who dare eat of out a can...... My point it is food stores like those are novelities and good for a small portion of your needs. Unless you are so "oh natural" that you do 100% of your shopping at these "quality" stores. In which case I'd call you foolish...

Just one question, is it quality because thats what your told or is it quality because it cost more or is quality because thats what you prefer? You see its all subjective and based on personal prefernce.

Your pompus point of view comes across loud and clear. We get it, your all about quality and the rest of us with Stop and Shop cards are idiots..

Yes, Whole Foods! Can't wait, and I'm also all about bringing your own reusable bags. This is pretty cool, I'd have to say :)
