I am hopeful that you will take advantage of the opportunity to be a LEADER in the retail industry by offering designated shopping hours for those who cannot wear a mask. You have offered special shopping hours for seniors and disabled since early on during this...

Do not worry about a private business operating on private property. You contact whoever you need to contact Karen. But posting from the parking lot after denied entry is all you Karen.

What would you tell the people who Want the stores to Enforce the mask policy? What would you tell the people who Want the Police to enforce the mask policy?

These people Do Not want mask free hours. Do you realize that You Would Not be the only person inside the store if you went grocery shopping mask free? There are employees working inside the store too.

Have You considered the fact that the store employees May Not want to be around customers who are Not wearing a mask? Don’t they count too?????

Whole Foods Market - Horrific Abuse by Employee

3.0
Details
I called to ask what provisions the store is making for people who are medically exempt from wearing masks due to health issues. I stated that I do not want to come in to the store during senior hours as I do not wish to frighten seniors or vulnerable people. The person on the phone was uninformed, rude, and abusive. He said the CEO was too busy to listen to me. He insulted me and said awful things. Sadly I cannot shop here any more which is too bad as I enjoy the products. Happily enough there is another nearby grocery who is very accommodating so I'm not too worried about myself, but for others.

User's recommendation: Shop elsewhere.

Dumb, liar Karen. No employee told you the CEO was too busy to talk to you. Hang up in the parking lot and dial the CEO yourself.

Don’t recite law this and regulation that boomer Karen. You can sit in the parking lot.

If you had someone to enforce all you profess you would have called them.

Otherwise open your own store. Turn your ac on in the parking lot Karen.

Whole Foods Market - Mask free hours

Since there were hours for at risk seniors put in place, why would there not be mask free hours for those that cannot wear masks due to health conditions?

You should see that Many complaints from others on the website Wanting businesses to enforce the mask policy at their stores. Also, there are others who want the police to enforce the mask policy. So, what would you tell these people?

Because Karen’s are greedy, self-serving narcissists who only think about themselves. There will never be mask free shopping hours , but there will be plenty of Karen’s in parking lots denied entry. Hope you have a car charger so you can post!

Very disappointed that Whole Foods chooses to lose customers instead of doing their own research on why masks don't work. A natural food and supplement store should know better.

Do not worry about whole foods policies. They are a private business. You will be denied entry Karen and all you Karens can try to rule the world from the parking lot.

(1)It seems you're under the FALSE impression that you would only be risking your own health by not wearing a mask. In FACT, it's to protect the public, AND THE EMPLOYEES from asymptomatic people spreading Covid-19 before they even realize they have it.

So, for argument's sake, say you had Covid-19 -but you don't know yet. If you go out shopping, with a mask on, a high percentage of the airborne particles you expel (via breathing and talking) are going to get trapped on the inside of your mask. As opposed to making it into the air around you; Where it's most likely to infect others. (2) I'm elderly and have COPD.A mask is uncomfortable, but it does not interfere with my oxygen machine at all.

EVERYONE who's healthy enough to make it all the way to the store CAN wear a mask, they just don't want to.

(3)It's NOT hard to wear a mask! It IS hard to lose a loved one to a PREVENTABLE disease, where the family can't even be permitted access to the dying person while they suffer, and pass away.

Oh my Karen, usually you are up in arms when you aren’t greeted and helped every step of your shopping experience. But you will return when masks are done away with. Go shop elsewhere.

It's not harassment, because you're not just risking your own health by refusing to follow the requirements. You're risking others' lives. Stop being so selfish.

Businesses have the LEGAL RIGHT to refuse to serve anyone who won't comply with their rules. Especially when the violation of their rules is reasonably deemed to be putting others at risk. The end.

Whole Foods Market - Forced masks

Hello, I do not appreciate being forced to wear a mask in your store. This is a violation of our basic human rights, the right to breathe. The mask is a kind of control experiment forced on human beings. Masks are ridiculous because they do nothing but restrict breathing. Are we to choose buying food and breathing? Everyone knows the plandemic is ending, yet the control get heavier. Why can't a company, like yours, that clams to be for health, fight back against the abuse of our health.

User's recommendation: boycott this store until they stop forcing masks on us.

If anyone has medical breathing issues that are so very severe that they warrant a claim of being unable to wear a simple little face mask, for only a few minutes, then they are NOT the member of the household whom should be elected to do the family shopping.
