Easily the best of the specialty grocers in the Triangle (and outside it also in most locations where they have venues). They eat Whole Paychecks lunch, and in virtually all venues has better personnel than those in this niche trade. Perhaps it is because many employees at Weaver Street, and former Well Spring locations wished for more out of life than the got in terms of income. Regardless, despite T Joes dominance of this trade they are not the equal of Kroger, in terms of diversity of product lines or ability to compete in say - Kroger's dairy product prices or selection. Similarly they are not in the same league in meat or seafood of organic or other types. Generally, Whole Paycheck and Weaver Street do a better job in this area than T Joes as well, but this reflects relative profitability of these areas , and T Joe's decision to forego labor overhead vs. profit margin. Nevertheless, Trader Joe's have best selection of artisan breadstuff's sold often for less than half of theprice of equivalent goods at competitors. Similarly in fresh flowers, processed cereals, cookies, nuts , dried fruits, frozen desserts and prepared dishes, snack foods, produce, and beverages carried; they are low cost purveyor. Keeping in mind the limited range of commestibles, as well as other limits within those areas (e.g. no Izze or Blenheim soda products) they are the best. If possible ,avoid shopping on Saturday's, as they are like Tuesday morning at Kroger due to volume of customers. Analogously, the number of customers makes it impossible to restock shelf outages detracting from the shopping experience. They are not 24 hour venue, running 9A to 9P. So while, in most cases people can shop after work, they can't get items on way there. This store is reached off US 1 and US 64 by exiting at Cary Pkwy exit south of town(next exit south of Crossroads Shopping Center) and proceeding west about a half mile to store on north side of road just before Kildaire Farms Rd. junction. Other access requires making ones way through Cary, and using online map programs is recommended if you do not have that community mastered. I hope you find this helpful. pjamesb
He scheduled a service appointment for today (May 3, 2011) and told me that your service representative would call before his arrival. Tim called me at about 1:45 this afternoon to alert me that he was only a few minutes our 46 inch Samsung LCD TV. Not only did he quickly diagnose the problem...but he was able to fix it on the spot...and I can't begin to tell you how much that meant to us. Beyond fixing our TV -- as Jeff was testing his completed away from my home. He soon arrived and was both very professional and knowledgeable. He quickly diagnosed my television problems and gave me quality information upon which I could make my repair decisions. I feel compelled, based upon my positive reaction to Tim and Steve, to send this message applauding your organization on the quality of your people. Thank you for smoothing the rough edges and making an otherwise unhappy experience much less intimidating.
Just a quick note to say how much I and my wife valued and appreciated the outstanding work of Jeff this week in fixing our 46 inch Samsung LCD TV. Not only did he quickly diagnose the problem...but he was able to fix it on the spot...and I can't begin to tell you how much that meant to us.Beyond fixing our TV -- as Jeff was testing his completed work, he noticed that our HD picture quality was ""off."" As a result, he took the extra effort to check our Dish Network HDTV settings -- only to find out an incorrect setting that was prohibiting us from seeing a full 1080i picture...which is what we've been paying for of course! I must say, for about six months...since we were obliged to replace our Dish Network HD Receiver...we had actually noticed and commented on how the HD picture quality seemed less than before...but had passed it off to poor transmission quality from the satellites etc.
