I ask you: how anyone can go elsewhere if they have a TJ's in their 'hood? I'd go their every day if I could. Heck, with all the new stuff they have coming out all the time , it's impossible to have a dull shopping experience at TJ's!
You can find everything you need for a fraction of the price here, AND it's healthier and of a much higher quality. What's more is you can find hundreds of things you just can't get at your typical chain (green tea muffin mix, anyone?). That's the beauty of this adorable, fun, grocery store!
Do you consider yourself a "foodie", but ..cheap,too? Well, Trader Joe's is your kind of place, my friend! You can eat very, very well and you won't have to sacrifice your paycheck to do so. Might as well buy a few of TJ's colorful reusable bags and plan on coming back (as an added incentive, they let you fill out a raffle ticket for free groceries if you bring in your own bags)!
I have my staples for sure: their orange chicken is to die for. So is their spinach and artichoke dip. Their pizzas taste exactly like the pizza you get in Italy. Their produce is always fresh. Their .99 pretzel bread is often hoarded by hipsters at my location, it's that awesome. You get the idea. And did I mention it's all CHEAP?
I,too, look forward to grocery shopping if Trader Joe's is my destination. Everything about the store is sunny and great, from the great deals to the quirky and helpful staff. I feel right at home at Trader Joe's . Forget Whole Foods! This place is for ..well...your average "Joe" (or Josephine!) who simply wants to eat well, have fun, and not have to take out a second mortgage to pay for it!
