As a down payment on that vision, Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices starting Monday on a selection of best-selling grocery staples across its stores, with more to come.
In summary, having more points of physical contact with customers is huge for Amazon. He didn't think Amazon would cut prices this quickly, though.
"Price was the largest barrier to Whole Foods' customers", said Mark Baum, a senior vice president at the Food Marketing Institute, an industry group.
"Starting Monday, Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices on a selection of best-selling staples across its stores, with much more to come", a press release issued by Amazon on August 24 stated.
Some analysts estimate that Whole Foods would have to cut prices by 10 to 15 percent overall to truly compete with other food sellers. "For me, it just seems like technology keeps moving, it's disruptive, and it's showing up in places where - probably nobody thought too much three years ago about Amazon merging with Whole Foods", Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans said shortly after Amazon announced the acquisition. Making Whole Foods' groceries searchable on Amazon's website doesn't increase the internet's cache of product information - consumers can already get that on the grocer's website - but it will steer consumers squarely toward Whole Foods' products.
Whole Foods is going to change, but it's not going to become unrecognizable.
"We're determined to make healthy and organic food affordable for everyone", said Wilke.

Shazneen Gandhi, 41, in Los Angeles said the Amazon-Whole Foods merger is a frequent topic of conversation among her friends and fellow mothers.
That explains why the FTC approved the Whole Foods deal with lightning speed. Rotisserie chickens are a dollar cheaper, now selling for $7.99 each.
Customers can also have products shipped from Amazon to their local Whole Foods Market store for pickup or send returns back to Amazon during a trip to the store. "If they lower price significantly, they'll have to overcome a major hurdle with maintaining the quality". Amazon is an expert in using data on past purchases and browsing to offer suggestions that might make people buy more, and could start applying that in stores as well as online.
