Whole Foods Market Corp. (WFM) has begun slashing prices as much as 43% at its store on 57th street in Manhattan, Bloomberg reported Monday after performing a spot check at the store. 

Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) said that it expects to complete its acquisition of Whole Foods today, about two months after it announced it was acquiring the company for $13.7 billion. 

"We're determined to make healthy and organic food affordable for everyone," Amazon Worldwide Consumer CEO Jeff Wilke said recently. 

 Amazon stock traded up 0.08% to $946.02.
