Additionally, Whole Foods lowered prices on organic and no antibiotic turkeys for all customers - and introduced an even deeper discount on organic and no antibiotic turkeys for Prime members. Moreover, Austin, Texas-based Whole Foods is now offering lower prices on an additional selection of customer favorites, including Value Pack Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (Organic and No Antibiotic), Responsibly Farmed Raw Peeled Shrimp, and holiday selections such as 365 Everyday Value Canned Pumpkin, Organic Broccoli, 1-Pound Organic Salad Mixes, Organic Russet Potatoes and Organic Sweet Potatoes.
Whole Foods' first round of price cuts under Amazon's ownership included conventional and organic bananas, farm-raised salmon and NY strip steaks.
Prices will drop on many holiday meal must-haves, such as Siggis Yogurt, California Olive Ranch EVOO, Applegate Hot Dogs, Chobani Yogurt, Fage Yogurt, and a plethora of organic items!
In a statement from John Mackey, CEO of the organic grocery chain, the move is part of the ongoing integration with Amazon. This means that Whole Foods, once referred to as "Whole Paycheck" for its higher-end and often more-expensive grocery products, is poised to shake that moniker given that consumers will soon enjoy shopping at more affordable prices. "We'll continue to work closely together to ensure we're consistently surprising and delighting our customers while moving toward our goal of reaching more people".
Oil steady as expected output curbs balance U.S. supply
EIA data confirming a surge in crude oil stockpiles could send markets deeper into negative territory. USA crude imports rose last week by 261,000 barrels per day.
Fresh organic turkeys will be sold for $3.49 per pound, while antibiotic-free turkeys run $2.49 per pound. While Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are expected to be wonderful this shopping season, Amazon is also bringing great deals to Whole Foods.
Amazon has not wasted any time in leveraging its Whole Foods brick-and-mortar footprint.
Prime members who want to take advantage of this year's holiday discounts should go to Amazon's website and print out a coupon to present to the cashier at checkout. In that case, customers are advised to look for the turkeys marked with an orange stripe that says "Special Savings".
