This week, Amazon, in a bid to compete with retail giant Walmart, proposed purchasing grocery chain, Whole Foods, for $13.1 billion. That’s when the jokes started.
Jeff Bezos: “Alexa, buy me something from Whole Foods.”
Alexa: “Sure, Jeff. Buying Whole Foods now.”
Jeff Bezos: “WHA- ahh go ahead.”
And we all know how much it costs to shop at Whole Foods:
Amazon buys Whole Foods for 13.7 billion, roughly equivalent to 11 shopping bags of their organic berries.
Who among us can leave a Whole Foods without spending $13.7 billion?
After seeing what Amazon is paying for Whole Foods, it’s nice to know I wasn’t the only one overcharged.
If I had a nickel for all the “Whole Foods is expensive” jokes I’ve seen today I could probably buy some peanut butter at Whole Foods.
