Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Amazon will be giving its Prime members extra discounts at Whole Foods. Discuss here if you think Amazon has more big plans for its supermarket chain, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Doesn't apply to me - not in my country.

I think they have two branches (at least) in London. One in Kensigton (High St.) and one just off Picadilly Circus (near Boots). Both with way over priced product ranges. Sadly once Amazon took over Whole Foods (previously New Frontiers) prices went up, and there is more gmo stuff n the stores (in USA).

If Amazon has its way it will dominate and control the food market in many areas, competition will dimnish and the “end user” customer will end paying more; and gmo stuff will be pushed even more.

In general I have not found Amazon the cheapest place to get things from either.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Trvir,
according the Website, there are seven London Branches.
I walked past the Fulham one earlier today (Saturday).

It is quite large, but there appeared far more Staff than Customers.
Probably due to the extortionate prices.
Will require a hefty Discount to reach a realistic level.

Regards - Mike

Hi Mike.

I know of the two I mentioned as I visited them when first they opened; mainly to see what they offer, and prices, and to compare with their US outlets.

I know of them from my fairly regular trips to SLC and LV (Las Vegas - not the UK insurance company). Wasn’t aware of their other branches.

The prices are somewhat high... I think at one stage there was a risk of the stores closing, due to lack of customers. I ‘m inclined to think they are targetting the Chelsea tractor and Sloanes etc. types, and also tourists too. The locals likely go to other less glitzzy organic and health food putlets.
