Organic, health “friendly” market run by a big, mean bully. Reply sizzle July 12, 2007 at 11:50 am oh sweet irony! Reply Killer July 12, 2007 at 11:52 am As long as his negative comments were organic and don’t come from China, they are okay. Reply Midlife Mommy July 12, 2007 at 12:54 pm Desperation perhaps? I prefer Wild Oats anyway. well, not really, but I’ll try to shop Wild Oats now.- oh wait. it won’t matter. Whole Foods will own them. Reply Bryna July 12, 2007 at 2:42 pm Your company sucks! How much to buy it? Great, love it… Reply sputnik July 12, 2007 at 9:25 pm Idiotic–until recently in our town, we only had a smallish Wild Oats, and everyone loves it. A year or so ago a huge Whole Foods moved in. I went in exactly twice. It’s nothing but an outrageously overpriced glam shop for faux-organic hipsters, and not everyone loves it, especially those whose residential neighborhood was compromised by its construction; in fact, I hear a lot of badmouthing. I would take Wild Oats any day, but apparently won’t have the choice soon. Too bad they’re going out. My choice will be to avoid. Reply brettdl July 13, 2007 at 5:27 am I’m not really me. I’m the CEO of G.E. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *Comment Name * Email * Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
