Trader Joes has a small store feeling packed with big cost savings. Most of the food is delicious with lots of creative choices including organic. Also, I have never found a product in Trader Joes that has high fructose corn syrup. This store offers big value.
One draw back, that probably is part of what is saving customers money, is the small store size. During peak times (evenings & weekends), it gets pretty packed in there. I try to go at non-peak times like on weekday mornings to avoid the rush.
We shop at the Bellevue, WA location.
