  •  I don't shop there. That's my position. (0+ / 0-)

    But Mackey's arrogant stupidity is only part of the reason. I just don't like the store and I never have. This just reassures me I made a wise choice. I'd rather shop at Central Market any day.

    I was in the Austin area when he started the company and never understood the attraction of a place that only sold toilet paper rough as a piece of birch bark no matter how good the produce is. It still has a product mix that is lacking 90% of what I buy. So why shop there at all?

    •  Neither do I (0+ / 0-)

      One thing that's good about living in Seattle is that I can get the products I want at any number of places, so I don't have to go to Whole Foods.

      If people want to shop there, fine.  If the employees are happy there, fine.  But I don't like Mackey's politics and will speak out against them where I can.
