How about if you make "the Whole Deal" available electronically, with coupon codes instead of paper coupons?...less paper, less ink, less energy. Also--I live in Medina, when I make my trip north to my favorite grocer, it would be nice to be able to view the specials to help me plan the trip--I can only justify the trip when I am combining it with other things in the Cleveland area, or for holidays, the flyer would be a great planning tool. Thanks, Cynthia

I agree with Cynthia. I live on the far side of town but make the trip to the north side 20+ miles away as often as I can. Without knowing what the sales are I know I'm missing out on good deals by not being able to time my trips with respect to items I would like to stock up on at a savings. I'd be more likely to make more trips if I knew what items were being offered with coupons and like the idea of coupon codes instead of having to remember the paper coupons. Love the store, wish there were one closer!

Yes! Coupons online are what I am looking for right now in planning what I am shopping for. I try not to deviate from my list, so if you had them printable online, I could get just what I need as I need it. And it would save paper! Please consider it. I will check back with the site to see if it comes about.

I agree with the other comments. I, too, drive quite far to go to the store in Overland Park, KS, and I have to combine it with other activities. I stock up when I am able to shop at your store. Since I buy frozen and refrigerated items, Whole Foods Market is always the last place on my list to go. It would be nice to be able to know what the sales are and have coupons available before going to the store. I used to see a lot of printed information about the store, like "The Whole Deal", but that sort of thing has not been available, lately. It would be nice to have that information on-line instead of trying to find it at the store and instead of wasting paper printing it. Whole Foods Market is my favorite store because of the quality of your store and because of your store philosophy. Please keep up the good work.
