Luxury grocer Whole Foods is about to get more affordable.
Earlier this year, Amazon spent nearly $14 billion to take over Whole Foods, and the ownership becomes official on Monday, August 28. CBC News is reporting that Monday will also mark lower prices on ‘a selection of best-selling grocery staples across its stores.’
In a release, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos said, “We’re determined to make healthy and organic food affordable for everyone.” Also stating that the lowered prices will not affect Whole Foods Market’s commitment to the highest standards.
Amongst the savings, customers will be able to find lower prices on the following:
- organic bananas
- organic avocados
- organic large brown eggs
- organic responsibly-farmed salmon and tilapia
- organic baby kale and baby lettuce
- animal-welfare-rated 85 per cent lean ground beef
- creamy and crunchy almond butter
- organic Gala and Fuji apples
- organic rotisserie chicken
- 365 Everyday Value organic butter
Avid Amazon shoppers will also be happy to hear that retailer will be implementing Amazon Prime into its payment systems in store, which will eventually lead to more savings and in-store benefits for Prime members.
Will lower prices incentivize you to shop at Whole Foods?
