A few days ago, I called my local Whole Foods to politely complain about the condition of their deli case. It was an absolute mess under that counter, with all the foods heaped on and touching one another, spilling off their dishes onto other foods.<br><br>
I never bought anything out of that case because I have a food allergy on top of not eating meat. That case always struck me as especially silly, because all the items in that case have a full ingredients list posted, but why bother if everything is cross-contaminated by everything else?<br><br>
So I finally called them and told them that while I love their store, their deli case is not friendly to vegetarians, vegans or people with allergies, and that they'd only stand to gain by neatening it up and keeping foods separate. After all, isn't their target market people who care about what's in their food?<br><br>
Today I went there to pick up a few items. And I was blown away. Their whole deli case has been cleaned out, neatened and reorganized. Everything has its own dish. Everything is separate. It looks like the whole thing's been washed from the inside. I'm amazed. I called them less than a week ago.<br><br>
Sometimes it's so hard to keep a different diet from the majority of society's, and I think it's amazing that at least some businesses care and want to help.<br><br>
I'll be going there a LOT more often and calling today to express my thanks.

That's amazing how they actually really listened to you and even followed through! I really want to go to a Whole Foods someday, the stores sound amazing, but they need more locations! It sounds like a magical veg*n friendly market, I didn't even know they had a deli case.

Isn't Whole Foods the chain owned by the lilbertarian guy who made a big splash about a year ago when he opposed any kind of federally funded healthcare?

Agreed...it depends on what you buy, but unfortunately, the stuff I like to buy there is pricey! I'm willing to shell out for Field Roast and such because I can't find it anywhere else.<br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Their deli case is wonderful. I've eaten there two times already since I discovered that my store changed theirs. I had wild rice salad with cranberries, pecans, oil dressing and scallions. Nom. They have TONS of veg options. Wish I could take you on a Whole Foods field trip <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I'm not really the kind of person that complains to companies - this is actually my second time ever doing so - but it paid off and I'm glad I did.
