A visit to the local Whole Foods at 11041 Westheimer Road reveals that the store still carries all the natural and organic products, organic vegetables and sustainably-produced meats and seafood that have made it a favorite for Westchase shoppers. But further investigation reveals that the store’s acquisition by Amazon has brought a variety of technical upgrades that completely change the shopping experience.
