Your article on Nugget was enlightening; however, I wanted to alert your readers to another stellar grocery store in Davis: Whole Foods Market.
Ranked No. 44 on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best,” Whole Foods Market has been high on that list every year since ranking began in 1998. Like Nugget, Whole Foods prides itself on employee satisfaction, however we take team member happiness and excellence one step further to “surprise and delight customers” at every opportunity.
You just have to step inside a Whole Foods Market to see happy team members and happy customers everywhere. I have only worked here for four months, but already the family atmosphere is friendly, warm and welcoming.
Another fun fact that sets Whole Foods apart from other supermarkets in town is that UC Davis students and employees currently receive a discount! Just show your Aggie Card at the register and your friendly cashier will be happy to knock 10 percent off your total. New to the agenda is the personal shopper program, which currently comes with free delivery, and you can check out College Night on Thursdays for fun games, freebies and lots and lots of samples.
Whole Foods Market is proud to be the country’s first certified organic grocer. We are incredibly involved in the community, making donations to such organizations as the Arboretum and the Davis High School Band, and participating in downtown Davis’ Holiday Open House and Parade, just to name a few.
Roughly half of our team members reside in Yolo County, and the other half are Sacramento County residents. Go local! Opened on Oct. 24, 2012, at 500 First St. in the Davis Commons, Whole Foods Market invites you to come in and be surprised and delighted early and often!
