This convenience stores started from a humble beginning, but they are now making it big. That is thanks to their healthy products that are only made with equally healthy ingredients.

In their convenience stores, you can purchase great dietary lists like their gluten-free delicacies, their kosher sweets, and their vegan products. You can also find their headquarters Monrovia, California, United States. As of now, they already have 474 stores, thus there is a good chance you are close to at least one of them.

One thing that Trader Joe’s is proud about is their effort to offer only affordable products. They want to make sure their prices are hard to beat by their competitors. And to do that, they directly buy from their competitors.

    I buy your cinnamon squares cereal and there is a lot of cinnamon and sugar left in the box when cereal is gone. Save it! It is great for making cinnamon toast!

    Went to 3 stores this week in Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano, & San Clemente looking for my absolute FAVORITE: the frozen salmon entree with orzo, spinach, & zucchini, & one little grape tomato. None was to be found. I fervently hope it is not discontinued. It is so healthy, low in calories & sodium, & I crave it!!! I usually by 10 or 12 packages at a time for my freezer.
    I love your stores & your hardworking employees! Looking forward to hearing some good news from you. Thanks!

    I just read this on Facebook posted by a friend being treated for cancer. This is the Glen Allan, VA Trader Joes. I wish you could see the beautiful arrangement of flowers:

    Ran into Trader Joe’s to get a few things… Adam at checkout asked me how I was doing and I just sighed..the guy helping bag ( unfortunately did not get his name) said not that great huh? I mentioned about getting radiation everyday and just started welling up . The checkout guy shared his cancer survival story which was so inspirational. The bagger had left for a bit and came back with a beautiful 💐 of flowers. Just so incredibly nice of them ! It so brightened my day just when I needed it!
    Thank you Trader Joe’s!💐

    why has simply lite dark chocolate with almonds been discontinued? you still stock the kind without almonds which sits on the shelves while the chocolate almond flew off the shelves…… makes no sense

    Dear Mr. Bane,

    I would like to commend your wonderful staff at the Brentwood, Missouri store. On, 14-March-2022, I was going to this store to buy ginger mints for my daughter and granddaughters. They find these mints help with seasickness.

    As I stepped up from the curb, the rock landscaping dislodged and I fell face first onto the rocks and sidewalk. Two young women came to my aid (I am 65). One sat with me while the other went into the store to find help. Two young men. Trader Joe’s employees, helped me to my feet; asked me if I wanted EMS. I assured them that my injuries seemed superficial. They walked me into the store and called over the “safety trainer”. The safety trainer asked me about the fall, asked if I needed help, then asked me to fill out an incident report.

    A manager and a young man she was training helped me with the report. They were very solicitous and again asked if I needed further assistance. I am a nurse and assured her that I had only soft-tissue injuries and would be fine. The manager told me I should hear from Trader Joe’s and if I was not contacted in a week to call the Brentwood Store.

    As I prepared to do my shopping, the safety trainer brought my ginger mints and refused to let me pay . She also gave me flowers.

    Since that day, I have received two calls from Trader Joe’s corporate people, both very nice.

    You should be very proud of your staff.

    Kindest Regards,

    Mardi Manary

  • Patti Higgins says:

    Please reinstate my two favorite thick handcreams in a tube that Trader Joe’s sold under their label seasonally – strawberry and ginger scented for about $5.00. They have not been carried for months and my skin is drying out, had them all over the house and car, and made a great gift. Now selling on Etsy at inflationary prices;.

     
  • Caridad Gutierrez says:

    Like to know of two products that we use to buy that they were love by my grandkids and have gone to few TJ and don’t since to find it. Please was any reason that they were taken out of market.
    1. Black bean soup that came in a container and TjJ brand.
    2. Breadstick TJ
    Please this items were bought on every week. Thank you

     
  • LMP says:

    Note about a product that burns your face and TJ’s response – said there was nothing wrong with the product and if you have nut allergies might be a problem – well I don’t.

    My response:

    Well it’s your problem then – there are SO many complaints on your Trader Joe’s reviews regarding this product (pink peppermint body and face mask) I was just trying to help – there are SOOOO many people that had their face burned.

    You should investigate – I was trying to help and not looking for anything.

    I am a former litigation attorney and you should be alarmed at this complaint – I don’t take my comments lightly.

    It has something that is burning people’s skins – I have NO allergies – look at all the comments saying the exact same thing.

    I know you are trying to deny any responsibility so good luck!

    You should appreciate my concern – if someone with sensitive skin tries it there might be real damage and then a lawsuit. This is a cheap sub-standard
    product and can cause real damage. Thanks for all your help! I have better things to do
    with my time than to hear this lame response. Now I feel like pursuing other avenues to get this off your shelves – I have a lot of time and a lot of knowledge. Shame on you. This product is hurting people.

    Best,
    Lynne Pallesen, Esq.

    Excerpts from your site:

    PETER R VAN LEUNEN – November 27, 2021

    My wife used this tube of nightmare this morning. The instructions says to keep it on for 10 to 15 minutes. She only lasted 5 minutes. It has burned her face. She doesn’t have sensitive skin either.

    JT – December 14, 2021

    This seriously irritated my wife’s skin after only 5 minutes of use, and she has visibly red and irritated skin an hour later. Seems like the opposite result of what was promised.

    Sarah – December 18, 2021

    Yikes! Left it on for only 10 minutes and it looks like my face got sunburned. Still red 40mins later. Peppermint usually makes my skin tingle so I thought it felt normal, but nope it actually burned my skin. Don’t buy!

    Debbie – December 28, 2021

    Gave this to my daughter for Christmas. It burned her face after only 5 minutes. She was so red & itchy she had to take an antihistamine. I tried it this evening and it was awful. After less than 5 minutes my face was bright red and feels like a bad sunburn. We have different skin types and it did the same to both of us. Will be returning to the store.

    Andi Terblanche – January 8, 2022

    Awful!! Sometimes my skin reacts to face masks but nothing like this—my entire face is red and burning like I’ve been in the sun all day. Do NOT buy.

    Oli – January 10, 2022

    This contains aluminum and it burned my face. I am still waiting to see if I am gonna have a serious reaction

    Amber C – January 15, 2022

    My skin isn’t sensitive but this made my whole face red except of course around my eyelids and my lips lol looks like I’ve taken a nap in the sun with sunglasses on. I really hope the redness goes away soon. I have pale skin so it’s super noticeable.

    Melissa – January 26, 2022

    DO. NOT. BUY. If I could give zero stars, I would. Like other reviewers, this has also left me with skin looking like I have a bad sunburn, deep red and so warm to touch. I’ve used many other masks and have never had something like this happen.

    Suzanne – January 27, 2022

    I only had it on for 5 minutes and after removing it with warm water my face is so horribly red. I have olive skin and have never had a reaction to a mask before and have always liked TJ skin products! Not now… this was scary bad! And after having these results I jumped online to see what if it was just me but I see so many others with the same complaint. I’m returning it! ZERO stars but it made me choose one!!

    Noname – February 9, 2022

    Never had a mask make my face red, don’t even get sunburned and I spend lots of time in sun. Do not buy this it’s no good

    NEED I GO ON?????

    I worked at the Ashburn Va store and before orientation was over, I was blindsided and spoken to like a child, racist code words were used to describe my “behavior”. Your captain and mate didn’t even have the decency to wear a mask, when they felt the need to verbally assault me. Since Trader Joe hasn’t contacted me address this incident, the EEOC and NAACP will be today.

    Please bring back your thick lemon and strawberry scented hand cream that you used to sell in tubes as a seasonal item.

  • JohnL says:

    Love TJs. Disappointed some folks don’t follow the recommended practice in VA of masking. So I just avoid them. Amazed at how just about every shelf in TJ has the designated products at a time when larger food stores have many empty shelves. Smaller size packages of some veggies and other products are perfect for a two person household. Veggies and fruits are always fresh, thanks to staff refilling shelves constantly. And, if you ask a staff person where to find a product, they escort you to the location. Now that’s service. As to the anti-mask whiners, get a life. You can’t shout “fire” in a theatre if there is no fire, and there is no constitutional right to infect other people in a public building.

  • Gina Schatzberg says:

    While shopping in your Hewlett, NY store, I noticed a number of customers without masks. When I complained to the manager I was informed that corporate instructions were that management was not to get involved with customers shopping maskless. New York State currently mandates that all indoor activities require proof of vaccinations or masks, and nobody at Trader Joe’s is checking for vaccination proof. It behooves your company management to comply with the law in whichever state you do business. Please correct this violation of New York State law immediately.

      There is NO legitimate Covid mask law in NYS or NYC!!!
      In fact what installed governor did was unconstitutional , but
      there is one about the masks, where it says that people cannot wear masks in crowd of two or more to prevent robberies!
      So before complaining about company not following any law, learn about actual law and not parroting of entertainment aka media!
      Besides If you are afraid TJ offers “speedy shopping” for you or stay home!

       
  • Jillian Brewer says:

    I shop Trader Joe’s religiously once a month ( an hour one way from my home) and every trip purchase several bags of the Mandarin Orange Chicke. Lately upon opening the bag to take out the 2 flavor/ sauce packets I’m finding leaks in some of the packets ( with as much as half the sauce gone)! This is happening more often than not now- at least one bag a month!! Can you make the sauce packets thicker? Have there been other complaints regarding this issue? Help- I’m tried of having to purchase more / different sauce to replace what’s been lost!! Thanks for any help on this

  • Richard Gelman says:

    I am a regular at Trader Joe’s but a recent incident with the Santa Rosa Cleveland Avenue Store Manager Steve has me questioning the stupidity of the management. A customer was walking around the store without a mask covering her nose and mouth. She was coughing and she was belligerent when told a mask is required by other customers. The City of Santa Rosa Mask Mandate REQUIRES the commercial business to enforce the wearing of masks. As noted by the city, “While most Santa Rosa residents and businesses have complied with Public Health Orders, some businesses and individuals have violated and continue to violate Health Orders. These violations create a serious and immediate threat to public health and safety and jeopardize social and economic welfare.” Fines for violation are:

    Commercial violation:
    $1,000 – first violation
    $5,000 – second violation
    $10,000 – third and each additional violation by same responsible party

    https://srcity.org/3281/Reporting-a-Health-Order-Violation

    The manager Steve said it is Trader Joe’s policy to just offer a mask and that’s it. Well, no that’s NOT it. I watched as he did not bother to offer her a mask, nor did he escort the woman out of the store immediately. He refused to do either.

    The Santa Rosa Cleveland Avenue Store Manager Steve needs to be terminated immediately.

  • Disappointed says:

    Dear Trader Joe’s-

    You will never ever see our business again. My husband just went to pick up a few things and was concerned about a very high or drunk poor soul outside who could barely stand up right in front of the store. People just kept walking by….Tom went in and asked for the manager and got some uppity young gal who was dismissive and said that they had spoken with him prior and had it handled. Gave him an attitude when he simply asked what was being done for the poor guy who clearly was in desperate need for help.

    An appeal of Trader Joe’s is their inclusivity. Well clearly it’s a façade. Diversity means tolerance and love for all. Not just the hip ones.

    Thankfully, Tom notified the police and is trying to get the man some services he needs.

     
    • Random says:

      Were you concerned about the man or about your husband’s pride? Seems like a silly post for such a humanitarian.

       
      • disappointed at disappointed says:

        i agree with you random. OP thinks shes mother theresa and her husband tom is the pope, why didnt you guys offer some help to the guy? why the buck to the next person instead of helping the fellow out themselves, according to the OP the person was in need of dire help……

    Good morning ,

    My local store manager in Charlottesville Virginia informed me that the Trader Joe’s Organic Multigrain cereal has been deleted for our region. It’s interesting that a hot cereal item would be removed prior to cold weather, but who am I to question MBA’s?

    I would like to know if this deletion is just for the Mid-Atlantic region. If so, what states constitute that region so I can travel to an area that has the item. It is an affordable mainstay of our winter diet. Thank you for your assistance.

    “Trader Joe’s mandate that employees inject themselves with experimental vaccines while building an empire on giving customers natural, healthy options is hypocritical,” Brad Dacus, the institute’s president, said in a news release.
    I am a long time customer at Joes and completely agree with Mr. Dacus. I love Joe’s but can put my love and money elsewhere. Elsewhere where persons rights are respected. No one should be required to be injected against their will; ever. I am a senior, I wear a mask, I wash my hands, and I am not vaccinated.

     
    • Jill Feeney says:

      You’re a senior. Did you get vaccinated for small pox? How about polio? See Jacobson v. Massachusetts, a Supreme Court case in which the Court upheld the authority of states to enforce compulsory vaccination laws. The Court’s decision was that individual liberty is not absolute and is subject to the benefit of many vs one.
      This case law was written in 1905 and has been law of the land for over 115 years.
      Some guy refused to get the small pox vaccine and his case was decided by the court. Mandates are a-ok when your literal narcissistic behavior affects the populous.

Can anything be done to stop this tragedy from happening? There are so many TJ Products that I love but this is the one that has me stopping by for extra trips to TJ..

    Please pass this message on to your purchasing and production sales department. I would like to see this decision be reconsidered and this product continued!

    I just bought your Golden Roasted Flax Seed (whole) and then saw this from Medimmune:

    6. Flax
    Ground flax seeds and flaxseed oil also contain omega-3 fatty acids. Many vegetarians use flax seed as a source of omega-3 fatty acids because they’re one of the better plant-based sources of this heart-healthy fat.

    Make sure to buy ground flax seed. Whole flax seeds are almost impossible for your body to break down. This means they pass through your body largely intact and never leave behind any of their nutrients.

    Ground flax seed can be sprinkled onto your morning cereal, oatmeal, salads, dips, or yogurt, or added to baked goods. Flaxseed oil is a welcome addition to salad dressings or smoothies.

    Your claims of whole flax seed being naturally rich in Omega-3, Lignans (?), & Dietary Fiber are QUESTIONABLE. Please comment.

    The new graham cracker squares are nearly tasteless, with no discernable hint of the honey listed as one of the ingredients. Also, the interior packaging material was a poor choice – try opening one of these packages, removing a few pieces of product. You will find the packaging material split to the point of being useless for preserving the product for another snack time.

    I would so love you to purchase the Food Emporium in Albertson, NY. It’s a very good size for you and I cannot figure out how the current market stays in business. It was a Waldbaums, but that company no longer exists. It then became a Key Food (the company that owns them) and changed the name to Food Emporium, I guess, hoping to drum up more business. Your nearest market is in Westbury, NY. I honestly believe you would do extremely well in this location.

     
  • Kirt Robinson says:

    I want to praise one of your employees, Doug Haipt, who presented himself as an outstanding Good Samaritan during my family’s time of need.

    While on a camping trip quite a ways off the beaten path, I blew a tire with my wife and 5 year-old daughter in the car. I was surprised to find that my wife’s SUV did not have the necessary tools to replace the flat with a spare, and it was growing dark on a road with little to no traffic even during the day.

    To our great fortune, Doug arrived well-prepared with the tools we needed to get back and track and safely to our campsite a few miles down the road.

    I cannot thank Doug enough for his assistance, and if possible, I hope he can be commended in an official capacity through your company’s leadership.

    Thank you, and all the best.

I and my family would love to have a store there as we live just a few miles of that location. At present our closest Trader Joe’s store is at least half an hour’s drive away.

    First, compliments to the staff and management at your Hastings Ranch store in Pasadena for the generally high quality of their response to the Covid-19 situation.
    Second, would you please consider providing two-handled shopping bags made of MATER-BI as an alternative to your traditional brown paper bags and the environmentally harmful plastic bags I recently received. Similar to the well-intended but flimsily made little green bags in the fresh food section of your stores, the larger, sturdier models are made using NON-GMO corn starch, and they are FULLY BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE. Every grocery store in Italy offers them. Providing this service to both your customers and the environment surely would benefit Trader Joe’s reputation in the community.

    Trader Joe at lakeshore in oakland ca has guy “cleaning” carts and greeting people with NO mask. I’ve reported this several times and no correction.
    I hope you will intervene. The facecoverings are mandated and the managers seem to think this is not a problem.
    Sad situation. He touches every cart in the morning and seems to greet each customer with no mask

    I am writing to let you know one of your stores is operating very carelessly during this Covid 19 Pandemic. This store is in Corona, Ca. in the Dos Lagos shopping center. Yesterday I went to the store with my daughter expecting to see that the store was being operated as safely as the ones I’ve visited in San diego County. I was relieved to see a sign at the entrance stating masks are required in this store. I had not gotten very far into the store when I started noticing how many people were not wearing a mask at all or had it covering only half of their face. I became nervous and made every effort to stay away from these people. Then I noticed that in certain aisles of the store there were literally clustered of people who did not know each other in front of certain sections. They were not maintaining 6 feet of distance and were even touching shoulders as they reached for a product. I expected an employee to come along and break up these clusters and even ask people to put on masks but this never happened. I decided to check out and get out of there because I am one of those people with underlying conditions. As I got to the check out lines the first thing I noticed was a family of three checking out with no masks on at all. Even worse, the checker who was checking them out had her masks only partially on. It was not covering her nose. People in lines were not maintaining a 6 foot distancing and no one was reminding them to do so. When I got to the front of my line I expressed my concern to my checker. I asked to speak to the manager. I pointed out to the manager how many people were in the store and how many were not wearing masks. I also pointed to the checker that had her mask half way on. He informed me there was nothing he could do. I reminded him that California State law REQUIRES that all people out of their home, especially in stores etc, must have on a mask and employees must wear a mask at all time while waiting on customers. The manager interpreted “REQUIRED” as “wear a mask if you want to”. He obviously didn’t understand the California laws regarding mask. If the Health Department had visited this store at the time I was in it, they would have shut it down. It was the most unsafe environment I have been in since this virus started. I am very disappointed that a store I mentally connect in my mind as being healthy doesn’t care about their employees or customers. They should remove the sign that says customers must wear a mask because it’s not true and gives people who are especially at risk a false sense of security until they get in the store and it’s too late. I will not be going back.

    I just read a column (powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/07/trader-joes-mans-the-ramparts-after-all.php) explaining your corporate rationale/decision not to rename/rebrand any of your products based on an online petition.Hooray for you!As a retired Marketing/Advertising exec, I admire your earlier strategic decision to brand products with reference to the ethnic foods they represent — a savvy understanding of your customer base. I admire even more the non-controversial success you’ve had with that strategy for many years.But today, I admire most of all your refusal to abandon this successful and harmless strategy because a few people erroneously view the strategy as  (racist????).It seems that there is a very small percentage of people who seek to change what they believe are unacceptable practices. On many levels (Marketing, customer loyalty, sociological trends, USA business culture) you are to be congratulated — stand firm( Not like Land O Lakes/Aunt Jemima/Uncle Ben’s/etc — BTW won’t the supermarket shelves be LESS diverse with these marketing icons removed)?Jim Polizzi

    I’m 70. I live in Bend Oregon. I too am happy that Trader Joe’s opens early for the elderly to shop more safely. But really, what’s the point? I went in today to find all the staff wearing masks, except the checkers who were wearing face shields. When I asked the manager about it, he said the Governor’s office just started allowing it. Sorry TJ’s, it’s allowed, it’s not a mandate. You didn’t have to do it. It is NOT a safe practice. I have shopped at your stores since you opened. I won’t be shopping there again until we have a vaccine.

    Where are the scallion pancakes??? I’ve been told for the past 3 weeks that they’re “on hold”. Please get them off hold. Please!!! I have chickens and eat a lot of eggs. My go-to meal is eggs and shiitake mushrooms on top of a scallion pancake. So what’s going on???

    Dear Trader Joe’s Executive Team,
    I hope you will be as impressed with your personnel as I am right now! I live in the New Orleans area but have been in the Houston area since March due my husband’s (Eddy’s) recent cancer diagnosis. Since he is undergoing chemo with a compromised immune system and the pandemic, I have voluntarily quarantined myself in an effort to keep him safe. Unfortunately, the side effects of chemo have affected his appetite a great deal of the time, so I am always asking him what would he most like to eat. His response is Trader Joe’s Shredded hash browns. There are no personal shopping groups that offer their services for Trader Joe’s so I have been unable to provide him with the one food item he really wants. I know this does not seem like a big deal but trust me, dealing with cancer puts everything into perspective. I called your store at 2922 S Shepherd Drive Houston, Texas and spoke to a delightful young lady, Kaleigh. I told her my dilemma and was simply inquiring as to any other choices I had to obtain this item without physically entering the store. She, without hesitation, asked me what I wanted and told me she would come outside to bring the items to me and handle my payment as well without me even leaving my car. I arrived the next day only to be welcomed with my hash browns but also surprised with two other bags of delicious items picked by Kaleigh and Andrew. There was also a bouquet of fresh flowers which happens to be one of my favorite things in the world! I was so touched by their kindness and generosity that I began to cry. I believe they are a perfect example of the caring spirit Trader Joe’s crew members exemplify to the public! You should be very proud of their efforts! With sincere appreciation, Marie Frois

    NO governor has legal authority to create a law. I urge you to look at this. I was refused entrance for not wearing a mask.

    I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for the Staff at the TraderJoe’s in Hermosa Beach. As a senior, I have greatly appreciated the senior hour for shopping. I am always greeted with a smile and a helpful guide to the many ready sanitized carts. Even though the store is not crowded, most all check out lanes are open. Staff members are working hard stocking shelves but always ready to stop and be helpful. At checkout, workers are friendly, kind and competent. I just want you and them to know that I do not take this level of excellence for granted and I greatly appreciate it. Trader Joe’s is a great company for its product line, employees, prices, and approach to customer service. Many thanks!
    PS Thanks for putting the pie crusts back in boxes that fit in my freezer!

    For me it’s no longer the friendly fabulous food store but TRAITOR JOE’S. I am extremely fed up with your Gestapo tactics and lines and chalk X’s on the ground. For God’s sake will you stop this nonsense. I was flagged by the warden at the door and an arrogant manager came out to tell me I have to wear the mask. I cannot wear a mask and was told my American with Disabilities Act mask exemption was a false document. I will take my dollars elsewhere as obviously there was a ‘memo’ to management to refuse entry to people who cannot breathe properly with a mask. You corporate criminals are being played like a frigging fiddle with this unconstitutional policy. Just stop it and let the grownups in the room conduct their business like free human beings.

    First of all I want to say I love Trader Joe’s, the products , the food items, the people that work there are fabulous! But, you need to do something more than this standing in line specially for handicap people! And it’s hard to try to get there between 8 and 9 a.m. in the mornings because it’s very difficult physically just to get up and move around and the time I get to the store there is a long line! I have not shopped at Trader Joe’s for quite some time since you started having to wait in line and when I drive by and see a line I don’t even bother to stop, I just can’t physically do it. On May 14th I went to your Folsom Boulevard Sacramento California store to stock up on items I can only get at your store items that have much better flavor than the products at other stores.
    I parked in the handicap right in front and was told to get in line upon arriving I was told to walk a several feet down to stand in line for who-knows-how-long. By the time I got in the store I was in such searing pain with my knee and my back! I’ve had two knee surgeries and I’m waiting for my third because they botched it. I am not a senior citizen and I refused to sit in those electric carts not only are they very uncomfortable and hard on my low back but getting up and down to get the products that I need is so bad on my knee it makes it worse. So back to Trader Joe’s on Folsom Boulevard Sacramento California, I finished my shopping and by the time I got to the grocery counter I was in tears. I told the checkout people they need to come up with a better plan to accommodate your handicap customers. The people at the checkout counter were so kind and sympathetic they gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and they told me please speak to the manager before I leave. I spoke to the manager I cannot remember his name and he was also very sympathetic and told me that whenever I come there to shop just let them know at the front and they will not make me wait in line and they will give me a cart and I can go in immediately. I can’t tell you how good that made me feel. So with that information the following week on May 21st 2020 at approximately 4:20 p.m. I was in Elk Grove and decided to visit your Elk Grove store to pick up some more coconut milk. Upon arriving there was a very long line and I ask for the manager explained my situation and the incident I had the week prior. I told him other manager told me to ask for the manager and that I would be able to go in to the store. He had a very condescending look this manager on him and said with his head tilted to the side like I’m some idiot oh let me get you an electric cart to sit in! I can’t sit in those carts it’s difficult to shop but instead of arguing I went ahead and let him get me the cart but by the time he got back out with the scooter, a few other people got in line that means a longer for me to sit in line on the electrical cart and it’s not only painful on my back but my knee does not want to bend so it’s difficult to sit in those. And then again trying to shop with those… getting up and down when that is putting so much work on my knee bending and straightening it bending and straightening it anyway I felt humiliated! Absolutely humiliated and as soon as I got into the store 20 minutes later I told him to please get me a cart and he looked at me strange and I told him I cannot sit in this and to get up and down is very painful is easier for me to grab a cart and slowly walk the store and get what I need. I’m not going to be humiliated in a store where I choose to take a grocery cart not sit in an electric cart! It doesn’t help me it hurts me!
    So what I’m saying to you is that you need to tell everyone of your managers and they need to train ALL of their staff that when they see someone pulling up in the handicap parking spot to immediately bring them a cart and escort them into the store. I should not have to keep telling this story to every manager with everyone else listening and I get emotional and upset every time I have to do that, then I start crying this is ridiculous you are not accommodating your handicap customers at all! Especially when you discriminate and tell us we’re only allowed in the store between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.! You need to do better than this Trader Joe’s. Because the next time I have to explain myself to another manager I’m just going to contact a disability attorney who goes after companies who cannot accommodate their disabled patrons.
    Don’t get me wrong because I love Trader Joe’s I have always shopped there for most of my grocery needs if not all of them! But something has to change because it has become a dreadful Excursion for me when I think that I have to go to Trader Joes to get what I need at the expense of feeling humiliated for my disability!
    Thank you for this time and if you would like to contact me my name is Michelle Mitchell

    During these times of uncertainty it would be a good thing for Trader Joe’s to open from 8-9 a.m. for the elderly and disabled only. This would limit their exposure to crowds of people fighting over goods.

     
  • R. S. says:

    When the Trader Joe in Eugene, Oregon stopped carrying the excellent Pastures of Eden feta, I asked the management if it was due to anti-Israel pressure. I was told it was a problem with the distributer. Next I noticed that they stopped carrying Bissli, another Israeli product. Now I see that some stores have been boycotting Israeli products. Siding with those that seek the end of the world’s only Jewish state and safe haven for Jews worldwide. This is anti-Semitism. Please, Trader Joe, do not boycott Israel. Do not side with haters and terrorists.

    I’ve been buying your Cinnamon Croissant Loaf at your stores in Raleigh and Cary, NC. When i couldn’t find it, they said it was no longer available. I am very dissapointed to say the least. Is there any way i can order it and have it shipped to me?

     
  • Sylvia Horwitz says:

    I have been purchasing Trader Joe’s 5.3 oz. Greek Yogurt Nonfat honey flavor for years — at least 7 cartons each and every week. All of a sudden it’s no longer being stocked. Why? Would you be good enough to please bring it back?

     
  • Paul Breit says:

    I have a complaint about your company dropping one of the products we have purchased for more years than I can remember. We have loved your “Sparkling Pomegranate flavored Juice Blend and were informed that it would not be available during the winter. However, I went into the San Dimas store today and was informed that the product has been discontinued. We hope that your company will reconsider this decision. It is an excellent product and we have thoroughly enjoyed it.
