  • Whole Foods Markets Under Investigation After Exorbitant Overcharging Rumors

The Whole Foods Markets have come under investigation by law enforcement authorities after exorbitant overcharging rumors surfaced.

A digging of the facts has begun regarding Whole Foods Markets in the Big Apple that is New York City. Detectives found that the upclass comestibles chain was guilty of overcharging its consumers. Groceries were especially tagged with very high cost prices and thus it seems that the store had been fleecing its customers on a regular basis.

Many inspections led to conclusive evidence regarding this heinous malpractice. A crackdown recently discovered to its shock and disgust that even the different weight stickers that got registered on food containers and packages were fake and not accurate at all.  

Nearly a hundred items from Whole Foods Markets were weighed after being purchased and the incontrovertible fact emerged that the weights were way off the mark. Such fraudulent acts ought to be punished in the most exemplary manner possible.

They cheat the public and delude anyone who has blind trust in the process as a decent law-abiding citizen. In particular, the overcharging of goods and services was a despicable routine activity at the large store. If such huge departmental stores follow a crooked thieving policy what can we say about the run-of-the-mill stores that are a dime a dozen. 

A spokesperson for Whole Foods Markets tried to clarify the position of the giant eatables facility. He said that it was not standard practice and they didn’t do it on a regular basis. At least there were no such evil intentions to begin with.

But then as they say, the way to hell is paved with good intentions. Intentions are not enough and have to be backed up with right actions too. The spokesperson said that the store admin is going to fight back against the accusations which he says have no basis in reality. The store manages its accounts without any creative skullduggery, he said.  

By the way, Whole Foods Markets is not the only black sheep of the family. As many as 120 other grocery stores come under the rubric. That is almost 77% of the market out there. Talk about the guilty conscience of a green grocer!

However, Whole Foods Markets topped the list. It was the worst of the worst despite its large scale structure and solid foundation. Nearly everything had a price tag attached to it that registered a number in dollars and cents that was higher than the standard price. What a shame!
