Amazon Is Lowering Whole Foods Prices on Avocados, Salmon, and More


Amazon’s acquisition of the health-food market takes effect Aug. 28

Amazon has announced that its acquisition of Whole Foods Market will officially take effect on Aug. In addition, the companies will integrate Amazon Prime into the mix — the $99 membership that offers free two-day shipping and access to its video streaming service — so that Prime members receive special savings and in-store benefits.

Seattle-based Amazon disclosed its interest in purchasing Whole Foods for $13.7 billion back in June. Whole Foods shareholders voted in favor of the deal on Aug. 23, according to Reuters.

“We’re determined to make healthy and organic food affordable to everyone,” Amazon CEO Jeff Wilke said in a statement, adding that customers will enjoy lower prices on “products like Whole Trade bananas, organic avocados, organic large brown eggs, organic responsibly-farmed salmon and tilapia, organic baby kale and baby lettuce, animal-welfare-rated 85 percent lean ground beef, creamy and crunchy almond butter, organic Gala and Fuji apples, organic rotisserie chicken, 365 Everyday Value organic butter, and much more.”

Customers can also look for Amazon Lockers in select Whole Foods locations. These will function as pickup and delivery spots for all kinds of Amazon-sold goods.

“This is just the beginning,” Wilke says. Apparently the tag-team has more customer perks in the works, and these price reductions should offer a boost to a brand that has developed something of a reputation for occasionally extravagant costs (it is sometimes known as "Whole Paycheck") — can you guess the ridiculous prices of these ridiculous Whole Foods products?


Amazon: We’re lowering Whole Foods prices on Monday

Amazon said Thursday that its takeover of Whole Foods will close on Monday, and its first order of business will be to make some items more affordable, according to a release.

“Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices starting Monday on a selection of best-selling grocery staples across its stores, with more to come,” the company said in a statement.

Items that will be marked down on Monday include organic avocados, organic brown eggs, organic salmon, almond butter, organic apples and organic rotisserie chicken. Amazon said it’ll keep the markdowns coming, and that Amazon Prime members will get additional discounts at Whole Foods.

“Everybody should be able to eat Whole Foods Market quality — we will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market’s long-held commitment to the highest standards,” Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer, said in a statement.

That’s good news for Whole Foods critics, who have long bemoaned the grocery store’s high prices.

Its prices even sparked a legal controversy in 2015 when New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs accused Whole Foods of “systematic overcharging for pre-packaged foods,” like sliced fruit and sandwiches. The chain paid $500,000 in fines to settle the matter. The city’s inspectors called it the worst case of mislabeling they had seen in their careers.

And there was more bad press when a photograph of a $6 bottle of “asparagus water” at a California store went viral. The beverage appeared to contain nothing but several asparagus stalks soaking in water. Whole Foods later pulled the beverage and said it was prepared incorrectly.

Comedian John Oliver, host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” ridiculed Whole Food’s pricing in a memorable 2015 sketch. (HBO, like CNN, is owned by Time Warner.)

The segment featured parody ads for items including tilapia wearing yoga pants for $84.99, a pomegranate listening to NPR for $64.99 and a block of ice with an avocado balanced on top for $25.99.

Oliver may have felt a small personal victory on Thursday. Amazon specifically said “organic tilapia” is among the items that will be marked down on Monday. (Note: It’s never been sold with yoga pants.)
