Trader Joe's Near You

This is their web site and there are listed several new stores just opening and some to come. Just thought someone would like this. For those who have never been to a store, the 'Fearless Flyer' is their mailing brochure of new products.

Yes PDS I would not know what to do without them, I do 75 percent of my shopping there, and the balance at a small chain that is a northwestern organization of organic foods.

No way! I didn't know we had a TJ's in Columbus! The Easton location is only a 15 minute drive from here. Thanks for the post, Norge! 8) Most of the supermarkets around here are embarrassingly inadequate.

you are welcome, DC, you will absolutely love it, especially the prices. Columbus is rather large city, I would recommend that you go during the week, if you can, as they can get crowded on the week-ends. Do not forget to look for their 2 buck chuck wine bargain, aka Charles Shaw wine, excellent and $1.99 here in Oregon $2.99, state owns liquor commission. Let me know, you can spend an entire day there looking for good products and very unusual ones. Sound like a commercial don't I.

:roll: Alas, no TJ in Hawaii. I have to go all the way to Vegas to shop TJs. Isn't that terrible?

LOL! Nothing wrong with hyping something you like! Unfortunately, "Easton" as it's called is a new, town-sized shopping area (built to look like a small town, with pedestrian thoroughfares and what-not) that is ALWAYS busy. It's also located at near the Morse Rd.-270 interchange that is notorious for traffic back ups. I will gladly brave the congestion if TJ's is all that you say it is! 8)

What is even nicer, there is an employee at a little cooking area with coffee (free to shoppers) demonstrating various new items for you to snack on. Always like going there, they even have flowers and plants, candles and pet food.

Norge, if they have fresh seafood I will be ecstatic! The most exotic thing our Kroger has is imitation crabmeat.

THey have some fresh and packaged by them, and some from all over the world in the freezer. They even have buffalo and I do not think they ahve imitation crabmeat, but never looked. The locak fish is fresh, other stuff is frozen as a matter of practicality. Their cheese selection is awesome, and they have packages of fresh pizza dough they make in regular, whole wheat and seasoned. You merely take it home, knead a few times, finish with your favorite toppings, put on a corn meal covered pizza stone adn wallah. I have made caldones out of it, great stuff. Even have sushi fresh made, sandwiches and salads as well. I could spend the rest of the day telling you, but due to geographical differences, your TJ's may have different things, fresh that is. Let me know what you think after you go.
