A Thanksgiving post: Top six reasons I’m thankful for Trader Joe’s

21 Nov

There are so many reasons I love Trader Joe’s. I thought I’d offer a few of them here:

1) Friendly

Welcome to the tasting station. Welcome to Trader Joe’s.

It’s the feeling you get when you walk in the door, when you’re sampling a snack at the tasting bar and when you’re chatting with the cashier while you’re checking out. The smiling. The helpfulness. The amazing return policy.

I’ve been to many businesses that are friendly. Trader Joe’s takes friendliness to another level. It’s part of the culture.

2) Personal

The service is personal and so is the packaging.

3) Fun

Find the walrus and get some candy. Best thing since sliced PBJs for the 6-and-under set.

4) Animal friendly

5) Cheaper than most

Just check out a couple of my price check posts:

Price check: Coffee filters

Price check: Fage yogurt

Price check: Kind Plus energy bar

6) Good food

And after all the other nice-to-have qualities, the bottom line is that the food is good. The Yum Factor is high.

Price check: Kind Plus energy bar

17 Sep

I was introduced to the lovely Kind bars a few weeks ago at a Starbucks in Dallas. I bought one for a friend. At $2, it seemed like a reasonably priced mid-day energy booster.

Kind Plus … a better price at Trader Joe’s

A week later, though, I was in a favorite Kansas City grocery store. They offered Kind bars for about $1.50.

But then, on my next shopping excursion, I noticed that TJ’s also sells Kind Bars … about 10 cents less than the grocery.

Another price victory for Trader Joe’s.

Thank you for keeping the prices kind, TJ’s.
