I am done with shopping there.
The quality and variety of the products has really gone to shit in the past year. From produce to dairy products to household cleaning products... This Whole Foods is complete crap. Here are some of my issues with them from the past year:
- They stop carrying a product after you've fallen in love with it. There was a particular flavor of organic yogurt that I LOVED. They stopped carrying that flavor only after a few months. There were also these pre-sliced apples that I loved... And they stopped carrying those as well.
- The produce is in crappy condition. Doesn't matter if you buy the "conventional" or the "organic" version of something... It's rare that you get something that doesn't spoil within a few hours or isn't bruised like a man after visiting a dominatrix.
- Things expire WAAAY to quickly there. If I want to buy some orange juice, for example, I'll check the expiration date on the carton... And I'll soon discover it will expire in three days. THREE DAYS! My husband can't drink juice that quickly. And don't even get me started on the bread products there. You can't buy any packaged bread or tortillas or pitas... For before you even get a chance to use them, they will develop mold. I bought pita breads there this past Saturday. I went to go and use them tonight, and they already had huge spots of MOLD on them. That means they were probably sitting there for a while on the shelf. They weren't very fresh.
- Their delivery service sucks ass. This past weekend, I went shopping there. I had my groceries all purchased by 11am. They asked me when I wanted them by. I said, "No later than 3pm." They said, "No problem! We'll be there way before then." Want to know what time they came? They came at 3:05pm. My poor husband had to delay his activities for the day because I was meeting someone at 3pm for coffee. I couldn't wait for them, so he had to stick around and do it. And I am a pretty good tipper normally. But this Saturday, I told The Husband to only give them $10 for showing up so late.
I just can not handle buying food that isn't going to last at least a full week. It's unacceptable.
