Foods That Will Be Cheaper At Whole Foods Starting On Monday

How Wal Mart Stores Inc. Makes Most of Its Money

Amazon plans to use its deep pockets to make big changes at Whole Foods, saying it will cut prices on bananas, eggs, salmon, beef and more when it completes its $13.7 billion takeover next week. "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", CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer Jeff Wilke iterated in a statement. "It's an opportunity for Whole Foods to capture more wallet share of its best customers, provided the program has the right components and you really get rewarded for shopping at or visiting Whole Foods", says Sucharita Mulpuru, a retail industry analyst.Amazon's new physical bookstores have Prime tightly integrated into store transactions and they have a distinct pricing structure for Prime customers, she notes.

Other integrations include the availability of 365 Everyday Value, Whole Foods Market, Whole Paws and Whole Catch private label products for sales through all of Amazon's programs. Customers will soon have the option of having products shipped to their local Whole Foods Market store from Amazon.com for pick up. Amazon didn't detail how low those new prices would be, but any change is likely welcomed by Whole Foods customers.

"There was never any doubt that Amazon would lower prices, and even offer further discounts in-store to Prime members", said Baird Equity Research analyst Colin Sebastian.

To pull this off, Amazon and Whole Foods will first need to integrate their logistics and point-of-sale systems. As a huge fan of Amazon and someone who wants to believe in Whole Foods, I see it being most beneficial not only for the two giants but for the individual shopper. It will also make shopping for organic products accessible to more people at lower prices.

Whole Foods has more than 460 shops with the bulk of stores in the U.S. and Canada and seven in the UK. Critics warned that the marrying of the two companies eventually would lead to higher grocery prices and fewer consumer choices as Amazon squeezes out other grocery chains. Effectively, Amazon Prime has become a membership offering for Whole Foods, akin to a Sam's Club card-the obvious difference being that normal non-card-carrying customers can still shop at Whole Foods. While it means that Walmart can offer same-day delivery in regions that Amazon doesn't reach, it also seems like turning to unpaid labor may not be a sustainable solution. Now, with Amazon's backing, the chain stands to become a formidable competitor in what's shaping up to be a grocery-industry war.

Seattle-based Amazon announced its bid to acquire Austin-based Whole Foods on June 16.

"I've been in retail since I was a kid, and I'm always nervous, " he said.

Where there is overlap is between Whole Foods and other natural-foods grocers, SunTrust said.
