From a marketing perspective, grocery stores always seemed to be a sleepy, amorphous category without a lot of brand innovation.

And then along came Trader Joe's—less a grocery store and more a brand with a cult-like following. The modest beginnings of Trader Joe's are the stuff retail legends are made of. According to Len Lewis' book, The Trader Joe's Adventure: Turning a Unique Approach to Business into a Retail and Cultural Phenomenon (Dearborn, 2005), in the 1950s, southern Californian Joe Coulombe told his business sch

If you've got a Trader Joe's in your neighborhood, chances are it's your go-to supermarket. It's cheap, convenient, and the snacks are unbeatable. It sounds crazy, but I often stand on the checkout line for 30 minutes and then take the subway home with my groceries just so I can have my favorite

This is Levi. A rescue from Georgia now living the good life here in Alexandria. Levi thought the peach box from our recent Trader Joe's visit was a purrfect way to show off his very fuzzy Georgia self!

We love this Trader Joe's - the products and most especially, the staff! It kinda feels like a visit to friends! I also want to share that we LOVED TJ's Lemongrass Chiken Stix. Really disappointed that they've been discontinued. How do we bring them back?

Horrible, horrible shopping experience. I will not be back. Advertising senior hours is an absolute lie. Myself and at a least 5 other senior clients questioned your greeter about all of the obviously younger people walking in. He said he can't stop them. However, at no point did he mention to all shoppers that this was senior hour. Costco, target & safeway all have personnel at door reminding everyone that it is senior hour. The younger folks generally reply, OK, and wait till the proper time. In fact, as we waited on line to be let in, folks walked right past us and the greeter bypassing the line. Shame on you TJ for caring more about profits than lives.
We know your employees are working hard during this uncertain time and may be struggling to find childcare. We are reaching out to our local essential businesses to let you know that we do still have some KinderCares open, servicing children of essential workers. Please see the attached flyer and feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

I was VERY disappointed to open your can of Coconut Milk and find out that the lining is NOT BPA Free! I bought four of them and yes I will be returning them but why are you selling can’s of food with BPA linings! The way you can tell if a can if NOT BPA free is if the lining is white.
