I have been shopping at TJs for years. In fact, I shop at all of th major stores. However, of all of the stores (including Gelsons, Whole Foods, Bristol, etc) Trader Joe's is by far the best. They have great quality, unique products. They are environmentally conscience (recyclable packaging) and often sell organic goods. Foods are always hormone and antibiotic free. To top is off, it is incredibly well priced. I am always stocked that the bill is as low as it is. In contrast, the bill is always more than I am expecting when I shop at the above-mentioned stores. Of all of the Trader Joe's, my favorite location is definitely the original, located at the corner of Westwood and National. It is a few blocks south of Westwood and is near the 10-405 interchange. This location has charm. While it may always be a bit crowded, that's because this location has the most to offer. They offer stock new items and always have samples. Even if yo do not live nearby, make the drive to this location. You will not be dissappointed.
