check out the juice bar and whether your WO still squeezes the fruit for you.

"See, it's beginning. I think Wild Oats is on a cusp. I think they
could turn it around, it would be difficult, expensive, risky, etc., or
they can carry on with business as usual, and I feel there is huge
potential for irrevocable crash and burn.

This poster hit on how Wild Oats is betraying its proclaimed
principles. And I say that there is no principle Wild Oats will not
violate to make a buck.

I'm really curious to watch this, to watch where the company goes. The
level of non-disclosure is huge. While I think the line between an
acceptable marketing tactic and an ethics violation can be fuzzy, I've
seen Wild Oats do things that are not in the fuzzy zone.

Thanks for forwarding this."
