    What do you guys mean by the cashier overcharging? Like, charging for 2 eggplants instead of one, or something?

    I go to Whole Foods, but only because it's my only option. My only other nice grocery store is about a 30-40 minute drive away, and ends up being the same amount of money. I never buy pre-made or packaged at Whole Foods, though. Just fruits, veggies, & stuff from bulk that you can fill yourself. Ours isn't that pretentious, no fancy waters or anything, but it's ridiculous the things people buy. I like to go behind the people with cars packed with packaged stuff, just to see how much it ends up being. Highest was $250 for a mother and her daughter, for what looked like a week's worth of stuff. Mine is always around $50 for the week.

    re: overcharging - this is what i mean.

    i buy a box of cookies that is marked 2.50 on the shelf. the cashier scans it and it rings up as 4.55 (no exaggeration). i call them on it and they fix it. happens every time for several items in my basket.

    i go there as infrequently as possible because of the overcharging.

    ^Jesus, that's ridiculous. I'm going to have to check from now on. I wish we had something better than a Whole Foods, because I've never heard anything good about their practices.

    it's pretty annoying and with young kids, i am too distracted to vulture over the cashier. kills me that a (relatively) low-rent place like safeway doesn't do this, but an expensive place like WF does. when i tell others about this, they check the cashier and they notice the same thing ....

    The closest grocery store to us is Whole Foods. In fact, I can easily walk there if I'm only grabbing a few things. Last week I went in to get a quick dinner. I grabbed a rotisserie chicken, a few items from their hot bar, a salad from the salad bar, two apples, and a box of Annie's fruit snacks. $35! The items from the salad and hot bar came to almost $20. I got a plain old mixed salad with feta and the hot items were some steamed veggies and a few of their falafels. I honestly don't know that I will ever go back. $35 bucks for one dinner and some fruit snacks.

    When I lived in SoCal, I used to love Gelson's and Bristol Farms. I love Wegmans when I go visit family, but the best grocery store is Publix!

    I loved Publix when I lived in Miami. Clean, fresh, fully stocked with everything (unless a hurricane was coming).

    Publix is one of the best chains I've been in. I wish we had them here. I like Wegmans, and there's a really great small chain here called Stew Leonard's that we always stop in when we go upstate to ski in the winter. They're about to open one on Long Island near my brother and I can't wait. It means I'll get to shop there more often.

    Brah, iirc you're in CT- why not try out Stew's? There's one in Danbury, Norwalk and Newington.

    I really miss Stew's since I moved. We don't even have a Trader Joe's anywhere near by. I try to stop at one or the other before heading home on Friday nights.

    Sorry, I grabbed your quote rather than Brah's. Fixed it!
