Since the Amazon/Whole Foods acquisition seems to be the "hot topic of the day", I figured I'd help pay back the community for all the guidance and advice I've received from this forum over the many years.
I am one of the employees with direct insight into the Amazon / Whole Foods deal when the acquisition went down. I am relatively senior (store manager and a specific department head) at our location in Portland, and was amongst one of the first people to hear about the deal after it was announced. Our store is one of the larger and more "well respected" locations in the north-east region. Happy to answer any questions you guys have about this deal!
