Whole Foods Market Inc. is an American supermarket chain exclusively featuring foods without artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners, and hydrogenated fats. The precursors of Whole Foods were John Mackey and Renee Hardy Laswon's SaferWay store, founded in 1978, and Craig Weller and Mark Skiles' Clarksville Natural Grocery, both in Austin, Texas. On September 20, 1980, these stores merged to open the first Whole Foods Market Store, also in Austin, the company's current headquarters. In the 1990s, Whole Foods bought a series of organic food chain competitors, including Wellspring and Freshfield's, quickly cementing its position as the highest-volume seller of organic food in the United States. As of September 2015, it has 91,000 employees and 431 supermarkets in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and has its main produce procurement office in Watsonville, California. As of 2015, founder John Mackey and Walter Robb were co-CEOs of the publicly traded company, with John Elstrott as chairman. In November 2016, the company announced that Walter Robb would be stepping down as co-CEO at the end of year and would remain with the company as a director. It became a Fortune 500 company in March 2005 and is the 30th largest retailer in the U.S., based on 2014 revenue. On June 16, 2017, it was announced that Amazon.com would acquire Whole Foods for $13.7 billion at $42 per share, a 27 percent premium to its previous closing price. Following the conclusion of the deal at the end of 2017, Whole Foods will become a subsidiary of Amazon, widely expanding Amazon's presence as a physical retailer.

  • Phillip was the man. He opened up a closed register for me. I got stress herbs and he asked if I was going to do anything fun and I thought it was very helpful and thoughtful of him to ask. Please give him a raise. I think employees should be compensated for being so Intuitive in a holistic environment. Thank You

  • I love whole foods. I shop at Whole Foods in Ohio all the time. I do wish they had their fresh orange juice machine out. But they did not 😢

  • Loved Whole Foods. They were experience helpful in finding be a place to pump while I was on the go. They are amazing and thank you so much for your help! As a woman, it's so nice to be able to find public/private places to pump milk for the little one.

  • We love whole foods and have seen a price decrease on staple items since Amazon closed the purchase. Always a clean store and friendly staff. Good corporate citizen vs. companies like Walmart.

  • TAMMY the manager was amazing. I desperately needed to get Bio-K to my mother in the hospital but I was in Canada. SHE WAS GETTING A PACE MAKE AND HER HEART RATE DROPED TO 30 BEATS! I old Tammy and she had an assistant drive it to the hospital. MY Mom is doing great. Thanks Tammy Bernard.
