New York City, 10 Columbus Circle: this is the location of one of the 430* branches of Whole Foods Market, an organic supermarket chain for which, according to the Handelsblatt trade journal, Amazon forked out around USD 13.7bn in June 2017. The concept is aimed at eco-conscious residents in big cities, and scores points for a quite unbelievably opulent assortment of organic foods at equally opulent prices, typical for New York.
Amazon, however, which now officially owns Whole Foods from Monday, August 28, 2018 onwards, has started correcting prices downwards. Pizza, pasta etc. can be eaten on the spot in “marketplaces”, or of course to take away. Baked products cannot be omitted, naturally, and a few are “made in-house”.
