We don't shop at Whole Foods - it's way too expensive for our budget. But if you do manage to spend money there, now you can feel extra good about yourself!
- ENGLEWOOD — You might want to skip your local Whole Foods and head to Englewood the next time you go grocery shopping.
When plans were announced to open a Whole Foods in Englewood, a South Side food desert, officials said prices would be more affordable. On Wednesday, when the doors finally opened, the store put its money where its mouth is.
Compared to prices at the Whole Foods' Lincoln Park location at 1550 N. Kingsbury St., prices on many Englewood Whole Foods items were far cheaper.
The differences are significant.
- Eggs are $1.99 in Englewood vs $3.099 in Lincoln Park
- Milk is $1.99 vs $4.19
- Gallon of vanilla ice cream $3.99 vs $5.99
There's a whole chart - it might be worth it for the Lincoln Park Trixies to get their Concealed Carry Licenses and head to Englewood to do some shopping. In any event, there's no way the corporate parent company can make anything close to their "per store" target numbers with these prices. Either they're going up in short order or Whole Foods is operating at a loss so Rahm gets to say he has cured the "food desert" on the south side.
