Tale of the Pizza Sale

I’ve been somewhat critical of Whole Foods on certain topics, so here’s an opportunity to give credit where credit’s due.

The other night I went there for a few slices of pizza, mostly because it was on sale for half-price during September. I hadn’t realized it, but it was pretty late.

I became aware of that fact when the server told preventing pizza waste one slice at a time...me that slices were two-for-one after 9 p.m. But he made my waste sensor even happier when he said another option was one slice for half-price (75 cents). Given the pizza sale, this meant that it’d be one-fourth of the usual (pricey) cost.

I’m praising Whole Foods is because they provide that choice. It’d be easy for them to stick with the buy one, get one offer because they’re looking to sell off their product by the end of the night. There’s no yesterday’s pizza for sale at Whole Foods or anywhere I’ve seen (even thought I’d be psyched if there was).

That’s why I’m even more appreciate that they offer the one slice, half-price option, as it doesn’t encourage overeating or waste. Of course, I plowed through two and considered a third, but that’s another story.
