WHOLE PAYCHECK? IT DEPENDS
When Amazon acquired notoriously expensive Whole Foods in 2017, it lowered prices to compete with traditional grocery stores like Kroger. Now prices have gone up on hundreds of items at Whole Foods, The Wall Street Journal reports. But if you're a devotee of the specialty grocer, all is not lost. We popped in for a price check at Whole Foods and a nearby Kroger, and although Kroger was cheaper overall, we found nearly two dozen items that actually cost less at Whole Foods.
