I called ahead to check and see if they had fresno and habanero chile peppers. Customer service was prompt in transferring me to produce, where a really nice guy said he would check to make sure they had good ones for me. Luckily, they had just what I needed, and when I was picking out peppers, the guy in produce unpacking pineapples remembered me and asked if I was the girl who called. He was very nice, pointing out that habanero peppers were very spicy, which I knew, but it was a thoughtful warning. This store is really clean and the employees are helpful and friendly. I only wish they had more samples around the store, but it was a weekday afternoon, so perhaps on weekends they have more? The Naperville and Evanston stores seem to have more samples.
I frequent this store quite a bit, Whole Foods is a great market. I really enjoy the selection of food choices they have. They have a great salad bar and deli station. This is the reason I keep coming back not because of the great customer service they provide at the store. I have found a lot of the staff there to be quite rude and unfriendly when asked a question or even at the check out line. I wouldn't be writing this is it happened once or twice but since I frequent the store it has come to my attention that it's happening a bit too much. I have starting going to the South Loop Whole Foods and they are great over there! The staff is very attentive and I don't leave the store feeling like I did something wrong.
Having been to more than a few, this location offers items such as Carol's Cookies (in chocolate chip and sugar varieties) that are hard to find at other locations. They also have a decent birthday cake and very good petit fours as well as an extensive hot and prepared foods section. Of course, this Whole Foods has a vast fresh produce section, a lot of healthy food choices, and is somewhat of a meat (or should I say meet?) market.
Not nearly as big as the Whole Foods in Atlanta (or the Harry's Farmer's Markets they bought out), but it's a great, well-stocked store for people who prefer fresh and organic foods and live downtown. I would think if I lived there, I'd be at Dominick's for a lot of things, but Fox & Obel and Whole Foods would be the first stop. Very knowledgeable staff, which can be useful if you find a weird product that you might want to try.
I was pleasantly surprised by the great selection at this store: beautiful fresh-flower bouquets practically overflow out the front door, and the cheese selection is as good as any you'd find at a gourmet shop. The well-stocked salad bar and the scrumptious-looking deli items are temptingIll definitely be dropping in for lunch. And what a treat to find my favorite scented hand soaps are sold herethese round little bars are long-lasting and make great gifts or stocking stuffers.
This is the biggest Whole Foods I've ever encountered. Sure, the prices here are higher (usually) than Jewel or Dominick's, but the quality is usually better -- and sometimes healthier. The prepared food section is packed with folks seeking a quick lunch or a take-home dinner, but there are a number of tables out front. The bakery, meat and cheese departments all have an incredible variety to choose from. And the produce section features mountains of fruits and vegetables at fair prices.
