Around Central Park and in the neighbouring Upper East Side, you'll find expensive apartments. For instance, a rich Chinaman paid 90 million dollars for a 100 m2 apartment in One 57. Whole Foods is already a supermarket that focuses on the upper classes of society, but it seems this store is taking it one step further.
Prices are pretty steep. For many products, you pay 3.99 dollars for a pound (453 grammes).
The displays are remarkable. In what other supermarket would you find pears, melons and onions, arranged neatly in a pyramid? But the prices reflect that. For many products, you pay 3.99 dollars per pound (453 grammes). The product range has also been adjusted to the busy lives of customers. Nearly everything is available ready-made, including cauliflower florets, cut onion and fruit salads. In addition, you can use freshly roasted peanuts to make your own peanut butter.
The products at Whole Foods are arranged neatly.
A lot of space has been reserved for ready-to-use products.
