I was in the same boat when "The Good Food Store" (Whole Foods) stopped carrying my Avalon Organics Peppermint shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. Had to find an online outlet, there were other places in town that sold it, but it cost more there. S&H was cheaper.

SO went to TJs and picked up the French truffles. Very good. Olive tapenade -also good. We have the roasted red pepper tapenade too but haven't tasted it yet.

Trader Joe's Heirloom "Kumato" Tomatoes are Deeeeliscious....very fresh and perfectly ripe... deep red juicy full of flavor. They're grown in Canada and I paid 3.49 for a pound.

Check this out: I have a personal TJ shopper now. :)))
My co-worker (employee) lives 3 floors above this brand new TJ's in Hollywood in her new high rise building. I call at her 7:30 in the morning and tell her what I need and she's in with the goods at 9am when I open shop.... ...just saying...

Not really....just an ordinary looking allocated low-income 2-bedroom apt for her and her son. She doesn't cook so acquiring this apt and having TJ's directly beneath her was a godsend. The only kitchen appliance she uses is the microwave.

I meant for you to have a personal buyer! I should be so lucky!

Huh? The only thing I understood was over priced sea salt. I can't imagine not being able to find anything to like at TJ's, but to each their own.
