  I can live to be 100, and I will never get tired of using that line each time the girls are pushing those crack cookies outside Safeway.

Meh, still shopping for cheese and bread and fruit/veggies and some meats there, WF is excellent at those. I think a lot of people who hate on WF don't want to drive the 6 hours from Possum Scrotum Hollow to the store nearest them. This might change with Amazon's distribution network.

I shop at TJ too, but they can't compete with WF on bread (TJ don't bake on site), cheese (TJ don't teach their employees to clean the cheesecutters properly, the number of times TJ cheese has gone bad prematurely...), TJ don't have butchers on site...

Some TJ items are great. The frozen Gruyere/Ham/Onion flatbreads and $6 (!) lemon meringue pies are superb

eta: and the chicken samosas

Hating on whole foods? Lemme see what I've got in my bag.

How about....

Whole foods sells cheese made by prison slave labor

Again Meh, I drive past a "correctional facility dairy farm" quite regularly, and if I was a prisoner I'd rather be doing that being than being locked in a cell. They can pay back society an artisanal cheese at a time

yeah, i was debating whether that would be a plus for me. then i didn't wanna seem like a troll. then i thought i already overthought it

  Pessimist.  Whole foods sells cheese made by workers who are highly literate and spend a lot of time reading.

They are expensive and overrated at times, but you can find almost anything you want in one spot rather than trekking all over the city. They have a great selection of organic produce.  It's really hard to distinguish what's worth buying and what's not.

I shop at WF fairly often. The produce quality is generally excellent. Sometimes items are overpriced, but other times the same or cheaper than discount stores, especially if you catch a good sale or buy their store brands.
