Do you begrudgingly put off trips to Whole Foods for fear that the gourmet grocery store will consume your whole paycheck?Whole Foods is trying to appeal to those of us who can’t afford their organic, GMO-free, hand-raised everything, with a season of deals called “Shop in the Name of Love.”
The steal of a deal that has most people buzzing is 25-cent coffee. That’s right: you’ll be able to get a 12-ounce cup of coffee every day from any Whole Foods coffee bar between September 9 and 30 for just a quarter. If you’re counting, that’s three weeks of caffeinating for less than 11 bucks.
“We are looking forward to deepening our connections with customers and saying ‘thank you’ and ‘we love you’ during this special Love Fest season,” said Whole Foods Market’s executive vice president of operations, David Lannon. “We can’t wait to surprise and delight shoppers with some of our best-ever deals, weekly giveaways, and a few other surprises in our stores as well as in our social media channels.”
Other deals include weekly $500 grocery credit giveaways in every store, special product offers, and “social media surprises” (presumably Twitter giveaways).
