In a recent post (in the thread regarding Gro-Body NorCal grocery/whole body mergers) somebody states that WFM (I assume recently) bought an online vitamin retailer. Does anybody have more info on this?

WFM did not buy a online vitamin retailer, WFM Online did purchase one. The reason no one knows about it, is because WFM Online is a private entity separate from WFM. The website is mynaturalmarket.com I believe...
Yeah, that is what I thought, too, when I read it.
That post was in error. Kroger bought Vitacost two years ago. If WFM were to buy an online vitamin retailer it would have been all over The Wall Street Journal etc.
