This came as a surprise to me. I enjoy going to Henry’s Marketplace here in southern California. Henry’s is owned by Wild Oats who is being purchased by Whole Foods for $565 million. I hope that Henry’s is able to continue with what it does best…offer local, organic food at reasonable prices. Although Whole Foods also offers high quality foods, it is often priced at a premium. It remains to be seen what Whole Foods will do with its smaller competitor, but I hope they will embrace a business model that will allow both companies to continue to operate alongside each other.
