If you thought Walmart was bad – wait until you see what Whole Foods markets potentially have in store for its customers. We know Walmart as being the go-to place for just about anything you can possibly need – from groceries and clothes to fast food and haircuts. Now, imagine shopping at Whole Foods and seeing people in the store with fresh new ink somewhere on their bodies.
For some reason, Whole Foods thinks that customers would like the idea of shopping for organic produce and then hitting up the tattoo parlor for new arm work.
Will this Be Everywhere?
Not just yet – so far, the Whole Foods that’s opening up in Silver Lake will have joint shops, which include tattoo parlors and record stores inside of its market. The idea is obviously to appeal to the younger, budget-minded customers, which may actually work. There’s also talk of food vendors, body care products, services and lifestyle brands also being a part of the new Whole Foods market. If Walmart can do it, why can’t anyone else? This is going to be a new thing for the Whole Foods 365 chain it’s planning to open throughout the U.S.
The Pros and Cons
Some people will fancy the idea of being able to get a new tat, while knocking out their weekly shopping list. Then there will be others, likely the older generation, who may find this to be a bit appalling. Folks with small children may not like the idea of a tattoo shop being in the midst of them, or seeing the sometimes inappropriate tattoos some people decide to wear.
But if they don’t like it, they can easily find regular Whole Foods to shop at. The 365 chain is geared toward the younger generations, and will more than likely attract them in droves.
Hopefully, the prices for these tattoos will be a whole lot cheaper than what you’ll find for the food sold at Whole Foods. The store is infamous for selling overly-priced produce and products. Thankfully, the tattoo parlors are separate entities and will likely charge fair prices. Because let’s face it – the millennials are cash-strapped and won’t settle for anything less.
What Do You Think?
So are you going to check out the new line of 365 chains Whole Foods is planning to open up? And more importantly, are you willing to get a tattoo from one of its parlors? If the artists are great and the prices are right, the answer to that question is likely a resounding yes!
