When you have food allergies and issues and need to buy bread, cookies, donuts and milk all made from rice, it's nice to have a place to shop that feels like a real grocery store. So many times the stores you end up having to go to are small mom and pop places and you feel a little conspicuous. Well, not so at this Whole Foods.
The place is huge. At the very least, it seems huge. The ceilings are tall and the place is well-lit. The produce section is huge, nestled right next to the large bakery section. You then walk right into the fish section where people stand behind the counter are there to help you and the fish at least looks so fresh they are practically still wiggling. They have a humungous section of organic wines that then leads into the dairy sections (or non-dair section in my case). The place is laid out perfectly, is what I am saying.
The employees are helpful and friendly. The checkout lines are well-staffed even on the busiest days. Even the checkout people are friendly and willing to talk to you. They have a large section where you can sit and eat some freshly prepared food as well.
One of my favorites, the Whole Foods in Wheaton is a great place to do your organic food shopping.
