    I find the concept of Whole Foods selling “premium” foods to be complete and utter Bravo Sierra. What they sell is high end marketing, flashy displays, trendy low demand items and ordinary brands ate 3x the normal prices. The store in my town closed two years after opening; the parking lot was essentially empty the last 18 months of its existence. People caught on very quickly to the fact that it’s one thing to buy truly premium goods but something else entirely to pay a high cost for hype and undeserved reputation.
    As for the workers fearing a takeover by Amazon, well … you may have good reason to be wary. Amazon will shed the excess baggage and hopefully make the stores actually supply what they preach about. Your role in this is to be the best employee you can be and do what it takes to make yourself an essential part of the mix. If your plan is to just worry, complain and continue plugging alone then you have cause to be concerned.
