Who else stopped by the moving sale at the Wheaton Whole Foods today? They’re moving into the old Danada Dominick’s tomorrow, which should give them some desperately needed room — but today the old location was selling off the rest of its inventory at 50% off.
My friend Trish and I stopped over to check things out this morning, and the store was a zoo. The checkout line went almost to the back of the store when we got there, but it had died down quite a bit by the time we left around 12:30 (and they were even more picked over at that point — honestly not sure what they’ll have left by now).
If you remember shopping the Dominick’s going out of business sales a few years ago, the Whole Foods moving sale was kind of reminiscent of that (albeit with higher prices and fancier stuff) — but not as sad, since they’ll be reopening in a bigger and better location tomorrow rather than disappearing forever
While a lot of the shelves were completely wiped clean, there were some good pockets of products to choose from earlier today — including wine, cheese, gluten free items, and dairy free frozen desserts. The produce was very picked over, and don’t go in looking for meat, but they did have quite a few bakery items left this morning. (And watch the dates on the cheese, since some was a great price but dated to sell by tomorrow.)
This being Whole Foods, taking 50% off some of the items just brought them down to a more reasonable price — but there were still some bargains to be had! (And, the register was taking 50% off the price of items already on sale, and giving case discounts off wine.)
So I somehow managed to spend $58.53 today — but ended up picking up some random things we actually did need (mustard, soy milk, olives, celery, no sugar added peanut butter, bacon bits, and a new thermometer, of all things!) plus some fun additions to the pantry like nice cheese, black sesame seeds, chopped pecans, fancy salsa, a sushi rolling mat, and a little bag of whole wheat pot stickers — which I just had for lunch.
Anyone else stop by today? Get anything good?
