After a brief reprieve from the “whole paycheck” prices at Whole Foods under Amazon’s ownership, shoppers are likely to see their weekly bills rise again as prices go up on hundreds of products.
A company email sent in December and viewed by The Wall Street Journal listed 550 items that would see increases. The company said that it has been forced into the move by suppliers charging more due to inflation. The average increase for items on the list was 66 cents.
