I LOVE Trader Joe's

I feel sorry for folks that don't have a Trader Joe's in their area. I've got THREE. The only problem I have is finding a flippin' parking space!

And those that think they should get a smaller refrig, sorry.. it's obvious there's no "Joe's" in your area. Otherwise, you'd want a MUCH BIGGER FREEZER.

Be sure to check out Trader Joe's if you have a chance. Okay, so Two Buck Chuck is now Two-Buck-and-A-Half Chuck, it's still a bargain.

So do we. Their ready made entrees (zap and serve) in the refrigerator section are surprisingly tasty and at, typically, four or five dollars for an item that serves two, a good value.

There is a reason that it is hard to find parking at a typical TJ's ...

We have Pirate Joe's here in Vancouver.
The proprietor ( and staff ) buy stuff off the shelf at Trader Joe's, paying full retail, bring it to Vancouver and sell it for a profit.
Trader Joe's tried a lawsuit which failed.

I hate you guys.

We do not have a Trader Joe overhere and perhaps that is better for me, i would be a regular customer and that would show around my waist.

But if you are at Trader Joe get you hands on item #1 the Speculoos cookie butter. It's a Belgium/Dutch invention (as far as i know) and overhere wellknown because lot's of bar's and restaurants server a speculoos cookie with their coffee.

It tastes goooooooddddddd

Kind regards,

Severinus and Yvonne

We don't have one locally, but never miss a chance to shop there when visiting our daughter in Olympia.

There's a Trader Joe's in Bellingham, and from what I've been reading, it seems that we are allowed to bring meat and dairy items INTO Canada from the U. S. but not the reverse. Am I right?
