Horrific Abuse by Employee

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.

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?

#1905508

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!

Mask requirement

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.

User's recommendation: Avoid Whole Foods.

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.

HEALTH DEMAND

Will not shop in a HEALTH store who willingly requires people to cut off Oxygen required for breathing to shop. WAKE UP!!! REMOVE MASK or LOSE CUSTOMERS! Educate yourself! https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3266****/

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.

Open your own storeKaren.

#1898500

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.

#1898496

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.

MASK TYRANNY - DEMANDING MASK FREE HOURS!!!!

MASK PRIVILEDGE AND EXCLUSION NEEDS TO STOP! As American Citizens we have the right to purchase food without succumbing to a mandate to lower oxygen intake down to 12%!!! If people believe they need a mask and they believe they work, than by definition they are protected if they wear it. No different than if you wear a winter coat to protect you from cold, you don't need to mandate everyone around you wear a coat. We DEMAND MASK FREE HOURS AT WHOLE FOODS!!! READ THE SCIENCE MORONOS NO VIRUS SHEDDING THROUGH BREATHING!!!! Even if there were shedding, where do you think the air goes from your mask? EVERYWHERE that's right! So stop the hysteria. If you want to remain in hysteria, fine let normal people shop!!!!!Nature

User's recommendation: Nature Magazine: NO VIRUS SHEDDING THROUGH BREATHING !!!

Take your cause up elsewhere. Sitting in the parking lot ,mad you were denied entry won’t do a thing. So genius, who are you going to call??

#1897152

Actually it is the ignorance of those believing everything they hear on the fake news instead of investigating and researching facts for themselves. The masks are just the beginning of taking away our freedom , they do absolutely nothing to protect...the only people that should wear a mask are those that are sick..and if you are sick , you should stay home like any other common sense we have done in the past.

#1896317

Your information is incorrect. Please keep.away from people if you choose not to wear a mask. Dont expect people to make accommodations for your ignorant behavior.

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.

Your state passed New York for most cases. How is the new surge in your state signify the pandemic is ending Karen?? Stop posting from parking lots after you were denied entry.

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.

@PissedConsumer1897034

What a completely ignorant statement....you want to wear a mask that is you privilege....but those that do not want to wear a mask should also have that privilege, regardless of the reason. My body, my choice. Pretty sad when one can commit murder , but have not the right to not wear a mask.

Mask enforcement

We've been loyal shoppers at Whole Foods for years. We are frankly tired of your unwavering mask policy. If a mask isn't worn we are harassed and made to leave the store. What ever happened to our rights as Americans. It's time we stand up to the powers that be that are pushing this false pandemic on the American people. Covid 19 is real but it's so called devastation is not. We the people are beginning to make efforts to change this and we need companies like you to stand with us. Instead of being puppets of the elite and living amongst them, you should begin to make changes in your store to put things back they way they were before this effort to permanently change the fabric of our country began. As many people have mentioned in other reviews, why not start with separate hours for those who want to make their own choice about masks. It's a great start that Whole Foods can do begin turning this wrong into right.

So go ahead and call whoever it is that will stand up for you. The rest of us will wear a mask for thirty minutes while you sit in the parking lot.
