General Info:
It all started in the 50s... Would you believe we started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It's true. Way back in 1958. We were called Pronto Markets. In '67, our founder, the original Trader Joe, changed our name (yes, to Trader Joe's) and the way we do business. We made the stores bigger (if you can imagine), decked the walls with cedar planks and donned our crew in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, we started putting innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods in the "Trader Joe's" name. That cut our costs and saved you money. Still does. And that's important, because "Value" is a concept we take very seriously. And by value we mean great everyday prices on all of our great products — no sales, no gimmicks, no clubs to join, no special cards to swipe... How do we do it? * We buy direct from suppliers whenever possible, we bargain hard to get the best price, and then pass the savings on to you. * If an item doesn't pull its weight in our stores, it goes away to gangway for something else. * We buy in volume and contract early to get the best prices. * Most grocers charge their suppliers fees for putting an item on the shelf. This results in higher prices... so we don't do it. * We keep our costs low — because every penny we save is a penny you save. It's not complicated. We just focus on what matters — great food + great prices = Value.

The original Trader Joe's location has more to offer than any other branch

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 a... view more

these are a few of my favorite things...

i couldnt live without TJ. i use their creamed honey instead of butter on toast, their choco macaroons for dessert (only like 80 cal each), honey wheat bread (yummy...even for wheat!), 100% flash pasteurized OJ, and during finals weeks--their cacao bars. great prices and gourmet treats. sure, whole foods is great but sometimes their prices are ridiculous and often the food there is soo healthy that it has no taste.\r... view more
