I worked in the produce department in one of Seattle’s Whole Food stores for almost a full year right out of college. At the time, it was a great job that fit well into my schedule and lifestyle that year and the company overall was something I could get behind.
As a foodie before I even took the job, I made sure to pick up on some of the best ways to take advantage of shopping at Whole Foods beyond my employee discount. Some of these tricks and tips may change in the coming months with the Amazon acquisition, but I think most of them will continue to hold true. In addition, most of these are also applicable to your local high-end grocery store or co-op, but since Whole Foods is a national chain, it works well as an example.
