    Up 38% today. WFMI.

    Of course it's nowhere near the $75/share it was back in October of 2006. This stock has lost most of its value and I wonder how their stores are holding up under the recession?

    Well, Barrons upgraded Whole Foods today to a Buy from a Hold.

    Yes.

    While Whole Foods' produce is amazing and their meats are excellent, why do you guys have the absolute WORST looking fish in the world? I could go to a frickin' Pathmark and get better looking fish.

    when i was in high school, i worked in a waldbaum's to pick up extra cash. they had the best appetizing around. they still do, actually.

    A&P near my folks is way nicer than waldbaum's, though. really pretty store. and you're right, no lines.

    yeah, always wondered why A&P never had lines...are they still in business?

    I always thought Pathmark was the ghetto supermarket...not in the fact that black people shopped there...they just always looked run down and the building was always ugly...at least the ones I always went too.

    When I first moved to Florida, I wanted to go pick up eggs or something it was 3 or 4 inthe morning. Went to the Publix and guy told me they were closed...I thought it was illegal or something by the face I gave him... I didn't even know supermarkets closed.

    It was a real eye opner when I moved down.

    It amases me how Publix and Win Dixie even though they are getting killed by Publix are the only 2 major supermarket chains here.

    When I lived in NYC

    I had Shop Rite, Pathmark, A&P, Waulbaums all within 5 miles of each other

    I always thought it was because A&P's were in waspier neighborhoods and waldbaum's were in more jewishy neighborhoods where people were more into food... lol. so more lines. The A&P in Holmdel, NJ is beautiful. And there was a futurestore up northern jersey (Alpine, I think) that used to be really nice. (My family's in the food industry... when i was in my first two years of law school, interning didn't fill my pockets, my paid summer job for two years was doing merchandising, so i had to drive from store to store. amazing what you get to learn about supermarkets).

    i remember the first time i went to florida and didn't recognize the names of any of the supermarkets. I mean, really, Winn-Dixie?!?!?! Publix???? :eek:

    i had never even heard of them.

    I still have a Pathmark, Two Waldbaum's and a Stop 'n Shop within walking distance. And that doesn't include our little local supermarket. I don't know how they all do ok. But they seem to. Of all of them, the pathmark is my least favorite.... rudest employees, terrible deli. (But NY rocks!)
