That’s right; I give out free stuff and have conversations with hundreds of Whole Foods customers.
I am Caroline, a dedicated Runa employee, and I just returned last week from an epic demo tour of nine Whole Foods stores in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Hundreds of (biodegradable!) tea tasking cups later, a number of hilarious conversations under my belt, and lots of empty shelves in my wake – here I am, to tell the stories from Life on the Front.
Today’s topic: Whole Foods and its people. Let’s be honest. When you think of Whole Foods clientele, you might imagine a young crowd with a few extra dollars in their pockets?
Well, I beg to differ. Not so! What this trip demonstrated to me was the incredible amount of
diversity across ages, socioeconomic status, and tastes in people in that grand and oh-so-aesthetically pleasing market chain.
What is so fun about the job is the number of different folks I run into and the diversity to which I am exposed. Just to whet your palate: I had the joy of converting three women in full-length fur coats to guayusa in Pennsylvania. Not an easy task! Babies and their mothers sipped from Runa’s Fountain of Youth mid-day in Annapolis, MD. I was entertained by an outgoing (and sassy!) 80 year old Virginian man, and I convinced a Scottish chap that guayusa could replace his strong English Breakfast. And that is just the beginning.
And now, for your task – keep your eyes out in your local Whole Foods. We are flying off the shelves in DC. Get your box today. Spread the love, and runagize. We will keep you posted on my next visit to a store near you!
Special thanks for Whole Foods and their employees for hosting us.
