Subsidizing Englewood

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.

This doesn't suprise me one bit, whole foods is full of liberal hippies that want to save the world. Now they can by paying twice as much for their organic veggies.

How did neighborhoods like Englewood become "food deserts" in the first place?

In almost every instance, grocery chains pulled out of such communities due to looting, arson, and more retail thefts than the accountants would allow.

Hmmm,

Do they have special parking for people with luxury cars? I'm not like some of my friends who get a Handicapped Sticker so they get a "premium spot" for their Rolls or Bentley.

Those prices almost make you want to drive down there but, that neighborhood isn't where us Howells usually cruise into.

Maybe I should borrow my friend's Bentley??

I hear they use a lot of them in those Rap videos and they really are impressed if you drive up in "a Bee". That's "rap" for a Bentley, you know.

Although, if I take my Rolls, they might think I am one of the Duke & Duke Brothers, but then I would have to come out saying, "Whiskey, ALL you want!" and that might be pushing it just to get some cheaper milk and eggs for Lovey. Share my aged scotch and bourbon? I don't think so.

And all of you think a Howell has got it easy.

Oh well, I am closer to Wisconsin anyway. 5% tax up there you know?

A Howell never pays a tax they think is outrageous! Cook County should renamed Nottingham.

Anyone else catch the debates? When Hillary - that lying scoundrel - talked about taxes and accused Trump - that lovable, brash rogue - of not paying any and he said, "Yeah, because I'm smart!"

I always felt really bad about those folks living in a food desert. They are always on the verge of dying of starvation, and look it. Pictures of them, they are always all skin and bones, and the little kids, skinny as sticks with those big bellies from eating grass, leaves and the bark off trees. I am glad to hear the Whole Foods is getting food shipments into one of Chicago's food deserts.

We are supporting the discounts. As usual.
Crains. April 2014. -
The City Council has signed off on a $10.7 million grant that will support development of a 48,000-square-foot retail property anchored by Whole Foods Markets Inc. in Englewood.

The council approved the tax-increment financing (TIF) subsidy at the council meeting today, according to a statement issued by Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration.

Austin, Tex.-based Whole Foods, known for its organic grocery options, has agreed to open an 18,000-square-foot store at the northwest corner of 63rd and Halsted streets in Englewood.

A venture between the local real estate firms Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives Inc. and DL3 Realty are developing the retail property in the South Side neighborhood.

The TIF subsidy will pay for foundations for four commercial buildings the developers will create on the property, including the store housing the Whole Foods, according to the mayor's office.

"The Whole Foods store will facilitate economic growth in the neighborhood, creating jobs and expanding access to quality and affordable food," Mr. Emanuel said in the statement.

Of course Whole Foods is operating the Englewood store at a loss. It will never make a profit even at reduced prices for poor people. It is in part pay back to Rahm but the Trixies and Metromen will feel better helping the poor people.

This is like a hail mary pass at the end of a loosing football game. It's not going work even if someone catches the ball - the game has already been lost. Englewood and the west side is lost. Don't you fucking get it?!! There needs to be a biblical flood in Englewood, Garfield Park, Austin and all these areas. Destruction needs to take place. And we need to start from scratch.

It's like a tear down building that is falling apart. Don't try and repair it. Tear the damn thing down and build anew.

I suspect Whole Foods hasn't really done its due diligence. The hood doesn't care about organic food, they want EASY food, preferably with a lot of fat, salt and sugar. People who give Koolaid to their infants do not buy arugula and kale.

I am an Aldi shopper. Until recently (when they built a suburban Aldi nearer to my rural home) I had to head into the city to stock up on groceries there once a month or so. The organic foods were always on clearance, nobody bought them. I loved it because it helped me score a lot of deals, but clearly, this was the result of slow sales. Good for me, bad for the store.

I don't see this at the suburban Aldi. In fact, I've learned to stock up when I see an organic special I like, because they sell out fast.

Whole Food had better start carrying organic Cheetohs and Gatorade or it will lose its shirt.

No. Muffy and Biff should just sue the pants off Whole Foods for racial profiling and having two sets of prices for identical items, with the only difference being the racial make-up of each neighborhood.

I would not be surprised that products which are not sold or past expiration dates at the HoeFoods Kingsburg location are air dropped into Englewoods. The only thing that could be delivered (via armed caravan, during daylight hours) would be Jolly Ranchers, baby formula and deodorant. Everything else probably is overstock, discontinued or damaged container items. Just a fancy big box corner store that will not know what to do if they see any actual paper money instead of that EBT LINK.
Rahm shelled out $10 mil to level the property where it stands, so really a lot of subsidy was from the pockets of the Kingsbury customers.
Yes, "a bit pricey" for a doomed effort. Just ask Sears Roebuck.

So it's become Aldi?

FYI, Aldi has percentage-wise the same number of organix as Whole Paycheck and lots more reasonable at that. I was wondering how many pints of organic blueberries one can fit on a LINK card.....

Nobody mentions that Whole Foods got special tax deals from Rahm to come there so Rahm can pander to the criminals on the south and west sides so he can get votes. Just like he panders to the protesters, activists, reverends and BLM to insure his reelection. He along with the anti cop tribune is doing everything in their power to destroy this city and give it to those who refuse to work.

Reading the comments on this site is proof that Elijah was right.

It will be one of the first places looted on election night when Trump is declared the winner.

With all this dismal weather and rotten news this should give you a smile.

It is what could happen at Whole Foods.
Maybe in Lincoln Park, Maybe in River.

I just can't see it happening in Englewood.
Enjoy.

Why is Whole Foods really in Englewood?

Build it and they will come.

I am thinking that one of Obama's plans is that exclusive expensive white suburbs should be invaded and occupied and settled by inner city African Americans and hordes of new Middle Eastern immigrants.

He wants to eliminate rules about minimum lot spaces, minimum quality of single family homes. Communities that do not comply will be driven broke by not being given federal funds and costly court battles. Englewood residents will be invited to relocate to Kenilworth, Section 8 and all.

So where do the rich and displaced go? To the new luxury communities that will be built in Englewood and on the Westside of Chicago by the Daley/Vaneko Real Estate Consortium.

Stay Safe. Register and Vote Trump.

Look back to the 50,60,early 70's
many grocery stores and retail shopping in the ghetto
it was not a ghetto then
after years of white flight because of rising crime
yes sir stores forced to close
no need for metal detectors , safe passage zones back then
anyone see a pattern of urban decay

10:23 PM that would be a good idea
let the wealthy suburbs that feel illegals are welcome in Chicago sanctuary
enjoy their new neighbors

Stop going to Whole foods, why should I pay more, and it's not the government paying for my food

The Englewood residents usually get five finger discounts at every other grocery store, which is why there are no grocery stores in Englewood. If you're willing to risk your life to visit that Whole Foods, do what the natives do - shoplift.
