They'll have to travel to places that have five digit "area" codes. Big difference in area and zip codes.

The Pasadena Patriots are not regular Whole Foods shoppers. A single afternoon of store patronage will not mean much to the store's profitability reports. These are not the customers can be depended upon day after day. If Whole Foods wants to keep this market they need to consider a management shakeup that won't upset the people that keep the stores doors open.

Pasadena Patriots or obese 60 plus in spandex, not the usual whole foods crowd.

Wow. The people who propose that "healthcare is a human right" are using economic force as a means of coercion. The very people who wish to use the government as a means to rein in the "healthcare for profit" industry are using the very tools they decry to effect change. Why not just "buycott" the healthcare industry while you're at it?:)

Interesting turn of events.

I always thought the whole organic thing was a big marketing sham. Well, it is, but now I shop at WF anyway. I've always been annoyed by the pony-tailed birkenstock-wearing self righteous who've shopped there, but now that there are fewer, I find it a more comfortable place to shop.

Are you jealous of us who eat healthy foods? Just because we don't ruin our bodies with slim jims, sausage gravy, hamburger and pesticides doesn't make us whacko's .. just healthy.:)

I dont mind paying more, I dont buy all my groceries there, just the unique and unusual items, which I cant get at a regular store.

I gotta say, their meat department is amazing, though.

Have you tried Henry's fruits, vegetables, nuts and meats? Organic and natural products without the snobbery or the prices.

Sorry to break up the Whole Foods debate, but thanks for the plug. And whattaya mean, I'm someone "whom no one would suspect of having a Web site that features a 'Grave of the Week.'"? What are you suggesting? That I'm normal?

Distraction to keep people from wondering why Obama hasn't given a real birth certificate yet. Presidency may be held by a foreign power, which should be the top news until resolved.

In my house there is no sugar, no processed or fried foods, and we don't eat fast foods...

Nope, not jealous, sorry!! I agree with Tina, have you tried Henry's?
