AUSTIN, Texas, 2016-Aug-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Whole Foods Market stores in Canada are now offering Apple Pay, a service that enables shoppers to make mobile payments with an iPhone.

“Our customers are going to love the convenience of Apple Pay, which will bring a faster, easier, more secure and private way to make purchases at Whole Foods Market,” said Joe Rogoff, president of Whole Foods Market’s Pacific Northwest Region. “We’re committed to providing innovative new choices and conveniences for our customers, and the ability to buy groceries with just a simple touch of a finger elevates convenience to a whole new level.”
