    Loblaws stock dropped a lot today on this news.
    Which is weird because neither Whole Foods or Amazon is competition for Loblaws - Amazon is still not a great way for Canadians to get groceries

    Not many grocery items on Amazon here, and these that are on it are generally expensive. Whole Foods was going to open in Calgary and Edmonton last year but they pulled the plug at the last minute due to the oil forecast. They had even built/reno'ed the stores. I wonder if Amazon will open them.

    Amazon: We're lowering Whole Foods prices on Monday

    Amazon said Thursday that its takeover of Whole Foods(WFM) will close on Monday, and its first order of business will be to make some items more affordable, according to a release."Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices starting Monday on a selection of best-selling grocery staples across its stores, with more to come," the company said in a statement.
    Items that will be marked down on Monday include organic avocados, organic brown eggs, organic salmon, almond butter, organic apples and organic rotisserie chicken. Amazon said it'll keep the markdowns coming, and that Amazon Prime members will get additional discounts at Whole Foods.
    "Everybody should be able to eat Whole Foods Market quality -- we will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market's long-held commitment to the highest standards," Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer, said in a statement
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
