Is Whole Foods better than Trader Joe's?
Whole Foods has a hot food bar, organic everything, in-house baked goods and so much more. Food used to be more expensive—MarketWatch calculated groceries at Whole Foods is roughly 32 percent higher than Trader Joe's. Good thing Amazon is slashing prices at Whole Foods by 43 percent. This means you can get everything you would normally get at Trader Joe's at the same price and you have more to choose from.
There's also the kitchen, the coffee shops, and the occasional bar depending on how fancy your Whole Foods is. Trader Joe's was cool because it was cheaper than Whole Foods. Not anymore.
Trader Joe's is popular not because it's cheap. It's popular because people trust and like the supermarket. It has a smaller selection, but Trader Joe's fans trust that whatever they get will be good. And with Trader Joe's generous sampling policy, you'll never be unpleasantly surprised. You can try anything you want at Trader Joe's if you just ask.
Besides, there's Trader Joe's two-buck Chuck wine, the store's limited edition items, a no-questions-asked return policy, and guarantee to offer items at the lowest price possible. The reason why Whole Foods is slashing prices now is that it's been trying to rip people off for years. Trader Joe's actually cares about the customers—and the customers feel it.
