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]
