Whole Foods just got cheaper. Dozens of new, noticeably lower prices appeared all across Whole Foods stores on Monday as part of a slew of changes Amazon promised last week upon the completion of its deal to buy the companyfor $13.7 billion. We went to a nearby Whole Foods to check out all of the new deals.

At the Whole Foods store at NYC's Union Square, all of the new prices were marked with orange tags, which show both the new, lower price and the price before the cuts. As Amazon promised, prices on items like Hass avocados (now $1.49 each) and whole rotisserie chickens (now $7.99 each) have been reduced in an effort to make the grocer's organic foods more affordable and accessible for everyone. Most of the lower prices are for the company's 365 Everyday Value brand products, such as milk, eggs, and pantry staples.

As with any major retailer, there are probably some pricing variations depending on your region, so these prices may not be what you’ll find nationwide. Oh, and there's a good chance we missed some of the new prices on our stroll through the store, so don't think of this as an exhaustive list. A spokesperson for Whole Foods didn’t offer any additional details on the new prices.
