Happy New Year from Pearl!

Holiday Photo Booth at Tustin

HO HO HO HORRAY for our Customers!
Tacky Holiday Photo Booth
Saturday Dec. 21st, 2013

We are a big store with big heart!
To bring  a bit more Holiday Cheer to our customers & Team Members we hosted our  first Tacky Holiday Photo Booth.
Every customer  received a FREE printed photo with the Whole Foods Market logo on it to take home  & hang on their chimney with care!
An assortment of TACKY holiday gear to dress up in was the icing on the Ginger Bread House…and people couldn’t get enough.Over 150 Photos taken in 4 Hours. !  Not only was it a fun event but it drove traffic to our Social Media Outlets.

From start to finish we had a blast and truly “surprised and delighted” our Guests this holiday season.

Love Local Juice: Suja Juice Video

Just in time for the New Year we have the latest Love Local Video about Suja Cold Pressed Juice. While we know our customers are purchasing lots of snacks and party foods they are actually stocking up on healthy items, too, in order to get a jump start on their January resolutions. In this video, meet the people of Suja Juice, learn about cold pressed juice and the new, Suja Elements Juice line. Please check it out and share with your teams, customers and on social media outlets. These great partnerships are what continue to set Whole Foods Market apart! Thanks to Chris, Maren And Diane for making this partnership come to life.

Elements Juice is a kid friendly smoothie line that was developed in collaboration with our WFM team and pairs each flavor (9) with a non-profit partner where 20 cents per bottle is donated to a specific cause associate with that flavor (including Whole Planet Foundation and Whole Kids).

Mix and Match Popcorn @ Pearl

Here’s movement on the popcorn bar.  I think this is a great showpiece, and movement is increasing as folks notice it.

3 pounds first day.  7 pounds second.  9 the third.

Keep in mind that an average bag of popcorn we sell is about 4 ounces….  
So a pound is probably 6 to 8 rings from these bins….

Therapy Dogs = Team Member Happiness in Palo Alto

Thanks to Todd Smith, ASTL at Palo Alto for the following post (this even took place in the store yesterday).

Today we had the Peninsula Humane Society come in with therapy dogs. They are typically used at the VA and other hospitals to provide emotional support for those in need. Our Team Members enjoyed their company in our break room during the stressful holiday season. Palo Alto is all about Team Member Happiness!!
