There’s a good reason Whole Foods has earned the nickname "Whole Paycheck," since food there tends to cost an arm and a leg, but now things are about to change.
Starting today the company is slashing their prices. Hoping to bring in more customers, the cost of hundreds of items are being cut by 20%, with most of the products being in the produce section. For example, mangoes will now be sold for $1 each, while rainbow chard will cost $1.99 a bunch.
And if you’re an Amazon Prime member, the discounts will be even bigger, withthe company offering“double the number of exclusive weekly Prime member deals and deeper discounts," with Whole Foods boasting about “300 Prime member deals on some of the season’s most popular items."
- New Prime deals include $2-a-pound off both asparagus and strawberries,
- 20% off prepared sandwiches and wraps,
- 35% off Justin’s brand products and more...
This is actually the third time Whole Foods has cut prices since they were acquired by Amazon in 2017, with experts noting that the initial cuts seemed to slowly creep back up over time. Some experts believe this price cuts may last longer, since hundreds of items have been discounted this time.
