Whole Foods is suffering because its prices are just too damn high.

Absolutely! Healthy living is always a great idea until YOU personally have to foot the bill - just like green initiatives, save the whales and all the rest of it. Want to save a guppie? Great. When it costs you 15 percent more at the grocery store it ain't such a great idea. It really doesn't cost any more to grow organiz\s in mass given how little the difference is between organics and regular consumable - most of the difference in marketing, distribution and pure D bullshit and the cost of that bullshit is huge.

WHOLE PAYCHECK

After hitting a high of $65.59 in NOV 2013, WFM remains in a long-term decline, currently trading for about $30.75

In a struggling economy, with a record number of Americans receiving food stamps, perhaps the premium organic food space is not the best place to be?

Whole foods is suffering because the competition has caught up. A wide selection of organic food (at much cheaper prices) is now available to Walmart, Costco, and every other supermarket.

the new store could be a center of gravity for the umkc neighborhood, wjich would be great.

just hope their parking is easy or else they'll never get above a certain volume.
