Just in case you missed it . . .

Whole Foods Market Knoxville opened today, and I am thrilled!

While I was unable to make it to the Grand Opening, I did talk about the preview I attended here. 

If you want tips on saving money at Whole Foods . . . check out Pinterest! There are SO many posts about it, and I promise I’ll write one on saving money while eating Gluten Free at Whole Foods once I get better acquainted with the store.

Hope y’all had a Terrific Tuesday!!

Whole Foods Market Knoxville . . . the PREVIEW!

I went to Whole Foods Market for a preview tour on Friday, and had a wonderful time learning about the store, as well as the companies core values, product labelling, and ways to save.

Here’s a few things I learned that I thought y’all would be interested in:

1) Whole Foods Cares about the community, and the planet.
And, they have well planned ways to show it through their Community Giving, foundations: Whole KidsWhole Cities and Whole Planet, and additionally, their Whole Trade Guarantee, and Local Producer Loan Program.

2) They’re committed to stocking local products.
They want to impact the community they’re a part of in as many ways as possible, and stocking local products is part of that. Watch the video on this page. #NewCareerGoals!

3) You save 10 cents for EVERY bag you bring.
This could rack up quick on a grocery trip, but what I thought was super cool about it is . . . that instead of just taking it off your tab (which you still can, don’t worry) you can choose to donate it to the community charity they’ve paired up with! So, find a cute bag (maybe this one?) and take it with you on your next trip to Whole Foods!! 😀

4) They don’t offer plastic bags, and haven’t since 2008.
Hence the above comment. They do offer paper bags still, but why waste paper when you can bring your own bags, right?

5) They have some great ways to save money.
Between the bulk department, coupons, flash and weekend sales, saving money at Whole Foods may be easier than you’d think! Read this blog post by Stockpiling Moms for some additional tips!!

Overall, we had a great time touring Whole Foods, and I’m SO excited to explore it more after the Grand Opening tomorrow!!

Do y’all have a Whole Foods near you? If so, what are your favorite products? I’d love some suggestions of things to try!!

Have a Marvelous Monday!!
Love,
