Declining Quality at Whole Paycheck?

NewDude | Mar 8, 2010 10:01 PM

I've been buying a lot of stuff at costco and TJ's in order to compensate for rising food costs.

However, I just think it's healther to eat as much organic food as possible.

I returned to Whole Paycheck (henceforth WP) this weekend and bought a bunch of organic veggies, fruits, and pre made stuff like soups.

To be honest, I don't feel like the quality of the food is as high as it was when I first shopped there (back in 03 or 04).

I feel like Trader Joe's has done a much better job of maintaining quality although of course they've been hit hard by increasing prices as well.

Anyone else notice a decline in quality at WP produce? I'd say it's still better, but the difference is not as great as it once was.
