I do shop there, but if I lived 125 miles from it, I doubt I'd go very often!
The one where I shop is across the street from my favorite place, the Union Square Greenmarket. I used to get all the stuff I couldn't get at the greenmarket at Whole Foods, but now that Trader Joe's is just one block further, I do some of my shopping there, as well. They don't have the same things as WF, but when they do, their prices are usually better. I buy just about all my meat and fish from the vendors/farmers at the Greenmarket, tho.
I do have one big gripe with Whole Foods: that is they "rain" on their produce, which makes it rot much
faster. For some reason, someone's convinced a n awful lot of people their produce needs to be washed for them.... Well, it sure gets you back into the store faster, when the lettuce all gets "goopy.!"
