Whole Foods Complaint - Rude employees and price gauging
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- Complaint against Ken Chef and Emily Manager Tuesday June 22 2010 12noon Lakeland 3300 N. Ashland Ave Chicago, IL 60657 773.244.4200 I WAS a loyal customer at Whole Foods. I WAS spending about $150 every 2 weeks in groceries there. This was my first time visiting the Lakeland location and I was appalled by the way I was treated.
1) The sandwiches in the deli department looked stale and spoiled. The bread, cheese and meat looked hard. (I should have left the store when I saw the condition of the food at the deli).
2) I asked to sample the sandwich and Chef Ken was rude and said he was out of samples.
3) The manager Emily was pretentious. She said the sandwiches are not samples and the entire time I was in the store she followed me around.
4) I felt victimized because Emily stalked and watched my every move as if I was going to steal something. She made me feel very uncomfortable, I left without buying anything.
When I went to a different grocery store I saved $40 and bought the exact same items that I would have purchased at Whole Foods. The other store also let me sample anything I wanted at the deli. I didn't realize I was spending so much money at Whole Foods.
Rodent infestation at Whole Foods in Lincoln Park July 9, 2008 by Matthew McClure Thinking about picking up pecan encrusted salmon cakes from Whole Foods in Lincoln Park on your way home tonight? Think again. The Chicago Department of Health shut down the store this afternoon after discovering a rodent infestation. “More than 100 [mouse] droppings” were found in one cooler, according to a Crain’s article.
