Whole Foods is buying Wild Oats.. I'm not sure how I feel about this. I never did go to the Wild Oats that is in this area, but it's where I shopped all the time in Boulder. It had many things going for it over Whole Foods, including less of a corporate feel and some items I really miss -- Uncle Eddy's cookies. Was Wild Oats union? I'm pretty sure they weren't, but I should find out. My major "beef" with Whole Foods is that they are rabidly anti-union.
