Trader Joe's. What is it??

Davwud | Jan 18, 2011 08:39 AM

Hey Hounds

So Mrs. Sippi was telling me yesterday that they may be opening a TJ's in Huntsville, Al. I have two questions.

First of all as she asked me, I'll ask you. What is Trader Joe's?? Is it like a Costco (which is what I thought it was) or is it like Wholefoods?? If B then is it actually like WF or does it lean more towards Earth Fare (Same idea but you don't need OAC for purchase there)??

The second question is, should I be happy or indifferent. I like EF but don't shop there all that much. I do not like WF and seldom go. I'll only go if I'm looking for something specific. I really won't pay more for something simply because it's organic.

Preachers need not apply.
