Love and respect abound
Trader Joes is not only unique in the food it offers but also in the way it treats its employees and customers. Love and respect abound at Trader Joes. Everytime I fly home to the US from England, I find the nearest one to see if they carry some of my favorite items (soytzels, California Wines, TJ Coffee, dark chocolate) and buy a new carrier bag to remind me that some day I can leave Tesco behind!

Making healthy eating within reach
This store is revolutionizing the way people look at wholesome food. Bringing an affordable alternative to Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck), this brand has a great emphasis on taste and cost effectiveness, making healthy eating within reach of all who are lucky enough to live near one.

Have to have my Trader Joe's!
We couldn't live without Trader Joe's! So much of what we eat is a Trader Joe's branded product, and there is just nothing else comparable on the market. I just love shopping there - the products are outstanding, the prices better than anywhere else, and the stores and staff make it a pleasant place to be any day of the week. I send my Mom care packages of their low salt and organic foods, as well as specialty items and spices that can't be found anywhere else. She doesn't have a Trader Joe's where she lives, so I shop for her when I shop for us. It is just the best place to find food you love to eat! And wine! Oh my gosh, the wine selection is a whole separate rave! Have to have my Trader Joe's!

Can't be bought at Trader Joe's - we don't eat it
I recently moved across country, not a move I am enjoying much. However, I stumbled upon Trader Joe's 6 months ago and it is just about the only positive thing I can say about my experience of moving so far. I have to say I now dread going to a regular grocery and have not been in weeks - if it cannot be bought at our local Trader Joe, we do not eat it. I have such a great experience there every single time I go there, from the samples to the wonderful people, I dread going elsewhere. And where do they find the employees? Even if I am having a bad day, I will go to Trader Joes and come out in a great mood. Also I am a very health conscience shopper and this quality is above all in my city.

A treasure and delight for all
Trader Joe's is a treasure and delight for all the senses and definitely should be brought to Wisconsin, particulary the Milwaukee area. I heard a rumour just recently that there is actually consideration for a store - near the Bayshore area.

Wish they would come here
We moved about a year ago form southern California to Milwaukee, WI. If that in itself wasn't not bad enough, there isn't a Trader Joe's store in Wisconsin! Trader Joe's would do very well in Wisconsin, especially in the Delafield or-Brookfield area. Wish they would come here.

Good food and good prices
I too love Trader Joe's. Good food and good prices, especially for organic food. Having one nearby was one of the first things I loved about moving to Virginia. But nobody's mentioned the quality that keeps me coming back. Finding the monkey in TJ’s keeps my son occupied throughout the whole shopping trip. Going to Trader Joe's is the only errand I can count on him to be enthusiastic about every time.

I searched and searched, but no sauce.
Trader Joe's is the best grocery store I know. But you all know that! Right ? I was recently introduced to Trader Joe's Lemon Dill Sauce, and of course, I loved it. When I went to buy more, they didn't have it. I searched and searched, but no sauce. I asked a clerk to help me find it and she could not find it. She askeded another co-worker, and another, until they finally checked the order sheets. They found me wandering the store and sadly informed me that the sauce will no longer be ordered... So sad.

Please come to Texas !
When is TJ's coming to Texas ? I've had the joy of shopping at TJ's while I was in other states. We have similar stores in Dallas, like Whole Foods and etc. Please come to Texas !
