Prices may drop at Whole Foods locations

Prices may drop at Whole Foods locations

Amazon has already announced they will be lowering prices on a range of products at whole foods - but prime members have even more to look forward to.

Amazon plans to use its deep pockets to make big changes at Whole Foods, saying it will cut prices on bananas, eggs, salmon, beef and more when it completes its $13.7 billion takeover next week.

Whole Foods has two stores in Pasadena, one in West Pasadena at 465 South Arroyo Parkway, and another in East Pasadena, at the Hastings Ranch Shopping Center at 3751 E. Foothill Blvd.

Prices are about to get a whole lot cheaper at Whole Foods following Amazon's acquisition of the health food chain. Whole Foods, overall, seems more like an Apple kind of purchase, with its organic and pristine reputation.

Ihsaan Muhamad of Newark said that, as a vegan, he visits the store on occasion for specialty items. "The vegan items here are the main draw for me". Whole Foods CEO John Mackey, who will stay in that role, said Amazon's history of innovation could transform Whole Foods from "the class dunce" to "valedictorian". "Before that, I could never justify paying $11 for an eggplant".

Whole Foods now represents less than 2% of the overall grocery market. "They're partnering with local farms and go back to being what Whole Foods was originally". "There's more of a healthy variety".

Monday's price slash is a "down payment on that vision", the release said.

"This is a little much", Diana Bradford, a 39-year-old stay-at-home mom, said of the Echo ad.

At the Columbus Circle store organic Fuji apples were sliced from $3.49 a pound to $1.99, organic avocado prices were slashed from $2.79 each to $1.99, and organic rotisserie chicken has been carved from $13.99 to $9.99, according to Bloomberg. "We can't wait to start showing customers what's possible when Whole Foods Market and Amazon innovate together".

So while Amazon can cut prices at Whole Foods to bring in more customers, Amazon will have to figure out how to reduce the rising cost of the products Whole Foods sells.

Whole Foods will also be integrated more closely with Amazon's retail site, with frozen Whole Catch products being offered for sale on Amazon's various grocery e-commerce sites. The company will maintain operations under the Whole Foods Market brand, preserve its high standards and commitment to providing the finest natural and organic foods, and continue to source from trusted vendors and partners around the world.

Founded in 1978, Whole Foods Market is the first national "Certified Organic" grocer, bringing in approximately $16 billion in sales previous year.

The legal precedents created by those cases give the FTC a basis for unwinding the Amazon Whole Foods deal but have been ignored for decades by federal antitrust enforcers.
