I'd like to present a different side of Whole Foods, they treat their 
employees very poorly (I'm very bitter today, my husband was just laid off 
from Whole Food today, and the entire situation was an entire farce).  So, 
if you care about how stores treat their employees, please do not shop at 
any Whole Foods.
