    wild oats

    The more natural foods stores out there the better, IMHO. Do you really think it is a celebrity deathmatch type thing that vies WFMI against Wild Oats? If more customer dollars are projected to be spent on these type of grocery stores, then there is plenty of room for both chains to do well. The one thing I would like to see is lower pricing. However, until some kind of Walmart type competition comes in and offers the same selection and services that WFMI offers, these two companies can grow how they like and expand customer base and awareness. I'd like to see these store chains offer more restaurant dining comforts that could draw people away from spending the money at a McDonalds or Applebees. There is a value to shopping for food and consuming it. If WFMI can attract more customers by creating a loyalty like a restaurant has ( -ie- the McDonalds consistency no matter where you go in the country), there is more repeat business.
