Whole Foods has been bought by Amazon. The newly acquired local market is on Victory Drive at the Truman Parkway. The store offers Savannah a choice of natural products with selections not available at the regular supermarkets. Also in the same shopping complex is a Pet Smart, and several other new businesses, including Zoe's Kitchen. By the way, just down the street at Skidaway Road is the new Chick-fil-a restaurant, which just opened about a year ago. Be sure to get a dozen doughnuts at Krispy Kreme while you're in the neighborhood.

Kroger remains the best buy in groceries. Not even Amazon can beat their prices; and there is a Kroger conveniently located just a block away from Whole Foods at the McAlpine shopping Center (Next to Parker's) on Victory Drive.

By the way, if you like what Kroger offers, now you can simply ORDER FROM HOME. The new online grocery delivery service, SHIPT, will process your order for any of the 40,000 items in Kroger, and deliver your groceries to your door usually in about an hour. How convenient is that? And it is not expensive. Just a few dollars saves you time and energy.
