retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, in a brief about how Teamster-represented drivers and warehouse workers employed at the United Natural Foods Inc. (UNFI) distribution center in Auburn, Washington, have rejected the company's self-described "last, best and final" contract offer and has authorized a strike, we quoted the Sacramento Bee as reporting that "UNFI supplies organic and specialty foods to major supermarkets throughout the Puget Sound area, including Whole Foods, PCC, and the Metropolitan Market."

In fact, Metropolitan Market does not receive any product from UNFI, is not affected by the dispute, and does not currently have UNFI as a vendor partner.
