All The Ways We Connect Online

By Nikki Newman, February 27, 2014  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Nikki Newman

No one’s ever accused us of being shy. We love our customers and love to connect with them and that includes connecting online.

Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and we’ll share our favorite recipes, cooking tips, product features, seasonal inspiration, contests and just good conversation.

And there’s more! Many of our stores and metro areas also have their own social accounts where they feature community events, store sales and team member shout outs. Just locate your local store’s page on our website and you’ll see links to their social channels.

Here are other places you’ll find us. We hope to see you soon!

Pinterest is a great way to collect images and ideas that you love and inspire you. We’re kind of obsessed with it and if you if you haven’t perused our Pinterest boards you’re missing out on a whole lot of fun!

If you have a Pinterest account you can use the Pin it! button on our recipe pages to make an easy go-to recipe board of your own. Under each recipe you will also see a link to our top pins so you can see what our other fans are pinning.

InstagramInstagram

Photos are such an amazing way to connect with people and Instagram allows you to  share your life through your images and to see what your friends are up to. We love sharing pics of what we’re eating, places we’re travelling and adventures we’re having. It’s so easy using the Instagram app. Just snap a photo with your mobile phone, choose a filter or #nofilter and post it to Instagram to share.

Google+Google+

If you have a Gmail account and haven’t explored Google+ I would highly recommend checking it out. Similar to Facebook you can follow friends and see what they’re up to, but Google+ allows you to create circles of friends and family.

One of the coolest features of Google+ are the Hangouts where you can have real time online conversations with your circles and others. Stay tuned for future Hangouts on our Google+  page

JellyJelly

We’ve been exploring and playing with this mobile app since it launched in January. You ask a question, attach a photo and Jelly sends it out to your friends and friends-of-friends on your existing social networks like Facebook or Twitter. The idea is that there is power in numbers and that your friends can help answer some of your burning questions. If we see one of your questions out there, we’ll do our best to answer it!

How do you like to connect online? Let us know in the comments below.

I love the Whole Story blog, and I am getting ready to start a blog of my own! I think blogs are a great way to extensively showcase an interest, talent, or hobby.

@ROM - My apologies for the difficulty in reaching our Customer Info team. You can always reach them at https://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/customer-service. I did find the answers for you from our team. 1. The pectin in our yogurt is a combination of citrus and sugar beets. 2. The vitamin D comes from lanolin from sheep.

Along the same line as Cathy's comment- we need a Whole Foods in the Northwest Cary/RTP area of North Carolina (pretty please?)! The nearest Whole Foods is 20+ minutes away- too far. :-) Great demographic in this area and I know a Whole Foods would do really well here.

Hi, I can not figure out how to open the small 0.67container of Korintje Cinnamon.Have tried poking the area w/the embossed arrow but nothing gave. Also not sure what the arrow is meant to indicate. Thanks for info.

@MARJORIE - My apologies for the difficulty opening the package. Is this a 365 product? Typically with our jars you can remove the plastic top with holes and puncture the seal with scissors to remove the seal. If for some reason you can't remove it, let your store know so they can make it right for you!
