We all know (unless you live under a rock) that the Trader Joe’s is now open in Raleigh. Conveniently, for me, it is right next to Costco.
I found myself getting very excited for the grande opening when I was recently behind a guy driving a red truck who was obviously a TJ’s fan. License plate cover, ‘I love Trader Joe’s,’ license plate ‘IHRTTJS,’ and bumper sticker ‘Charles Shaw for President.’ Seemed like overkill, but it made me laugh and excited to visit the new store. Maybe the driver was Joe. Or Charles.
So, I’m planning my big visit and I need your help. Here’s the thing… the last time I shopped at a TJ’s was in the late 90’s in Boston. I vaguely remember what I bought – Kiss My Face products being the main thing. I’ve heard there are delicious gourmet cheeses, cookies, dried fruits, frozen pizzas, and most importantly, great deals.
Please help make me a Trader Joe’s fanatic! What are your TJ’s recommendations?
