Herve Mons for Whole Foods


Recommended Posts

I seem to recall they already had a Mons relationship when they'd just opened the Houston shop (remember that large and somewhat ill-maintained cheese section facing Houston?)

 

Assuming they're not doing anything terrible, the Mons Epoisses and Camembert (and of course Mont d'Or, and a couple of other cheeses) I sometimes get in Japan were certainly better than most, but the price is just incredible (might be better in the US)

That cheese shop was going to be their flagship. They even brought in a good cheese person or two.

 

Never worked out.

I thought that space was supposed to be used for wine but the city only gave them a permit for beer because the columbus circle location was selling wine without a license. the same person told me that they forgot to adjust the blended markup and that's why beer was so cheap at first.

I was just telling a MFFer the other day about the lackluster condition of some Mons offering at WF, but today there is a Mons Epoisses that is the best Epoisses I've had stateside, on sale at least at the Bowery location.

I remember when that store first opened, they were gonna do the whole high-end cheese thing. Which then I think turned into pickles.

 

Good to know!

I am sure this isn’t news, but I’ve been too busy/cold/snowed in to get to a real cheese shop for a couple of weeks, enough time to realize how bad the WF cheese program now is. If you don’t see the Mons Camembert (do they still sell it?) there is nothing worth buying, is there?

The Mons Epoisses is okayish (although needs some recovery time out of plastic wrap). Otherwise, Jasper Hill and some hard cheeses at hard to swallow prices.

take a look at the Kroger share price this week.

 

Imagine being attacked by Wal-Mart, Aldi, Lidl, and Amazon all at once. Four different business models all best in class attacking you on different axis.

this ended up being hilariously wrong. Wal-Mart killed Lidl for them. Aldi never got their act together, and lord knows what Amazon is doing with Whole Foods, but whatever it is, it isn't hurting Kroger.

"Leveraging the lessons from its $13 billion acquisition of Whole Foods Market in 2017, and continuing to focus on ruthless execution and experimentation, Amazon is on the cusp of transforming grocery with what is expected to be an acceleration of openings for its Amazon Fresh format this year. "

"Last month, in a second year dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon cemented its leadership position in dunnhumby’s Retailer Preference Index (RPI) for U.S. grocery by landing the No. 1 and the No. 5 spots in the ranking. Amazon took first place, and Amazon Fresh took fifth place (the first time a food retailer has nabbed two spots in the top 10). "
