1. This Whole Foods magazine is not affiliated with the Whole Foods grocery chain

The Whole Foods magazine that has operated for 35 years has a clear disclosure on their website that they are not affiliated with Whole Foods groceries.

We can begin boycott of them if they don't pull out of that rag.

8. That is a great suggestion

and I will be looking at that- in fact, I think I'll buy this issue, and make a list.

Thank you. I am horrified.

10. Dig up an old issue that you have- don't buy a new one unless you absolutely have to.

No sense giving those failures any more $$.

12. Trade Publication

makes more sense now. I used to write for a Trade Journal and I assure you that most of the content of all of them is simply drivel to fill column inches.

I wouldn't take this thing too seriously.

7. Who has done more for the Whole Food industry this year?

He's buried everything the Dems have tried to do on the topic. They couldn't buy better representation.

9. The unregulated supplement and snake oil bullshit industry loves Republicans

 


If you want to sell questionable bullshit with extravagant health claims and no regulation, yeah, the GOP is your crew.

11. Then somebody ought to be suing somebody else for trademark infringement.

I'm not a fan of the Whole Foods store - it's ridiculously expensive - but do they want to be associated with Moscow Mitch because a magazine uses the same name?

Although the store also sells a lot of "health" products.

13. This magazine has been around for a long time.

Whole Foods Market was founded in 1980, but consisted of one store. In 1988, it purchased Whole Food Co.
This magazine was founded in 1984. The magazine is free at health food stores. I think Whole Foods Market is a Republican owned chain anyway.

Beginning in 1984, Whole Foods Market expanded out of Austin, first to Houston and Dallas and then into New Orleans with the purchase of The Whole Food Co. in 1988. In 1989, the company expanded to the West Coast with a store in Palo Alto, California. While opening new stores, the company fueled rapid growth by acquiring other natural foods chains throughout the 1990s: Wellspring Grocery of North Carolina, Bread & Circus of Massachusetts and Rhode Island (banner retired in 2003), Mrs. Gooch's Natural Foods Markets of Los Angeles,[13] Bread of Life of Northern California, Fresh Fields Markets on the East Coast and in the Midwest, Florida Bread of Life stores, Detroit-area Merchant of Vino stores, and Nature's Heartland of Boston.[14] The company purchased Allegro Coffee Company in 1997. The company's 100th store was opened in Torrance, California, in 1999.[15] In April 2019, Whole Foods opened its largest store in the Southeast in Midtown Atlanta. The three-level store has a burger restaurant, an Allegro Coffee shop and a rooftop terrace.[16]
