Having lived around a Trader Joe’s in the northeast I know that the company brings a high level of customer service and fun (the employees rock Hawaiian style shirts to work) along with a focus on fresh, organic, and often quirky products. There’s no preservatives, additives or artificial colors in their products but they are presented in a down to earth fashion that could otherwise turn some folks off to green stores. A majority of the brands in a Trader Joe’s is Trader Joe’s accounting for nearly 80% of what is on the shelves. Because of this the prices are less flashy then other niche grocery stores, among my favorite products being $5 Trader Joe’s wine and their big raw looking hunks of chocolate.
Check out Trader Joe’s at 4600 Shelbyville Road, in suites 111 and 112.
