Today, Business Week posted an interview with co-CEO Walter Robb about the chain's growth plans, how it's different from the competition and the lessons Whole Foods execs learned during the recession. It's an interesting read. Take this off-the-cuff remark about Trader Joe's, for instance:

You look at Trader Joe's—they have more stores than we do. They're not particularly transparent about what they're selling, but that's their thing.
