I set foot in a Trader Joe’s yesterday for the first time in 11 years. We stopped at the Brentwood location, and the place was packed. According to employees, it was even more crowded the day before, which was the first day they were open. The store was much bigger than the location where I used to shop when I lived in California. I’m not sure if they are all this size now, but I’m guessing this is probably a pretty typical store. I was just overjoyed to find that they still stock my favorite black bean dip!
We heard quite a few people talking about being from California and missing Trader Joe’s, so I’m not the only one who felt this way. Of course, with locations around the country now, you don’t have to be a former Californian to be a fan of Trader Joe’s.
