 Trader Joe's Opens October 11, 2013


     Wikipedia says

          "Trader Joe's is named after its founder, Joe Coulombe. The chain began in 1958 as a Greater Los Angeles area chain of "Pronto Market" convenience stores. Joe Coulombe is said to have developed the idea of the Trader Joe South Seas motif while on vacation in the Caribbean.  The Tiki culture fad of the 1950s and 1960s was fresh in the cultural memory, and Trader Vic's was at its height with twenty-five locations worldwide. He had noticed that Americans were traveling more and returning home with tastes for food and wine they had trouble satisfying in supermarkets of the time."

Fred, We have a Trader Joe's in Naples and I love it.  It is a bit of a drive, but they always have something interesting and fun, great wines too!

Hi Fred, Lucky you, I must travel to Philadelphia or Baltimore, about 2 hours to shop at a Trader Joe's.  Have a safe and relaxing Labor Day weekend!
