I'm going to try again

Thanks for the responses to my previous question about Whole Foods. But I'm still hoping to find some enthusiastic fans who have been looking forward to this switchover, or miss if from somewhere else they've lived and/or people who think a Whole Foods here will be somehow detrimental, or will miss Wild Oats, or have some other definite opinion. And sorry to for bring print media into this blog world but I'd really appreciate it if anyone who does hold one of those opinons would e-mail me at pcampbell@enquirer.com.

Polly-I'm excited about WF coming to town, I've shopped there when out of town on vacation in a home we rented. they have really nice stores. While WO offered some great food (esp. their seafood & butcher counter) I never cared for their stores. The employees were never friendly or helpful (in fact they always seem to cop an attitude), they didn't have a deli counter (so I had to make another stop at the butcher's store), they didn't have a very good wine department, and much of the store's floor space was taken up with a mishmash selection of soaps, oils, beauty creams and other oddities. WF's stores have much more diverse offerings, good service and a great wine department, even if we will still be paying high Ohio prices (or better yet going to the Cork 'n bottle and pocketing the savings!).

In fact I much prefer the Fresh Markets to WO, and since they opened I have stopped shopping at WO altogether.

I too will shop at WF and much prefer it to WO anyday. I have shopped at WF when visiting my sister and her family many times.
I think the staff are far more customer service based and are not only helpful but friendly as well.
The prepared food is so much better than WO....especially the baked goods....MANY times WO baked goods are stale and hard. I find they have great deals when you buy in bulk (things like oats, flour, rice, nuts) that are staples in our diet. Overall just a much better experience! Ikea and WF....can't wait!
