Lower prices announced for Victoria's Whole Foods Market grocery store
Published August 28, 2017
Prices at Victoria’s Whole Foods Market grocery store are expected to dip this week as Amazon’s $14 billion takeover of the Austin-based chain completes this morning.
Media reports from across the United States confirm prices on popular staples like bananas, avocados, eggs, lettuce, salmon, ground beef, apples and rotisserie chicken, among others, have been slashed. The same is expected at the chain’s 13 Canadian locations.
