This reputation has prompted Whole Foods Market to introduce separate stores that are designed specifically for millennials (Bolton, web). There is no evidence about how these new stores will affect Whole Foods Market, however there is evidence that the population of America, where most of Whole Foods Market stores are located, is getting older. While the number of birth is estimated to out pace the number of deaths in the United States, people are estimated to be living longer since the population is living longer because of this Whole Foods Market’s focus on the younger population may not be beneficial (U.S. Census Bureau, Demographic Internet Staff, web).

In all Trader Joe’s is one of the leading super markets in the U.S., but after careful analysis of their operations I believe there are opportunities that are currently being ignored by the company.

However, how does Canada compare with a similar country? America, being Canada’s neighbor, also owns a portion of the Great Lakes and shares similar conditions with Canada. Forcing them to face the same issue being the algal blooms of the lakes. These hazards altering the behavior of the environment and the ecosystem itself, algal blooms can cause trophic cascades: when the predators of the food web suppresses the abundance or alters the behavior of their prey (Stephen Carpenter, 2016). This results in dramatic changes in the ecosystem structure and nutrient cycling in the environment.
The best landform region in Canada is the Great Lakes-Saint Lawrence Lowlands because of its fertile land, wide range of vegetation and mild temperature. The region has one of the best farming lands in the country. This is because the GLSLL is the youngest landform region in Canada and the soil is much softer and there are multiple water bodies around the area to provide enough water to sustain good soil. This creates job opportunities and fresh local food for Canadians in the area. The Great Lakes-Saint Lawrence Lowlands has the widest variety of vegetation than any other region in Canada.
