    Fun fact I NEVER go into a big chain super market if there’s a Trader Joes I can go to instead. Food’s tastier, healthier, cheaper, and there aren’t as many aisle clogging idiots at Trader Joes (shop, get what you want, get out of my way, LOL).

    I’m not a very happy customer these days. I’m disappointed Trader Joe’s (here in the SF Bay Area) has discontinued yet another item I have relied on for several years. That item is Bisous de Provence’s Green Tea Triple Milled Soap. This was a great seller here and is a great product.

    I don’t get it, and am quite disappointed once again. I’m doing more shopping at farmer’s markets and BiRite.

A fun fact about me is that although I love the state of CO, I could never live there because there are no Trader Joe’s!!! (Why is that anyway?) My favorite TJ’s item has to be the Wintry Blend seasonal coffee, because nothing has ever been so comforting as drinking a cup on a chilly morning. I love you TJ’s!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. Terry Lindler Says:

    My name is Terry and I live in Dilworth, I shop at Trader Joe’s at Metropol Avenue often. My experience has been good there with the employees except for SAM. SAM is a bitch that is lazy, not helpful with locating items in the store, doesn’t know TJ’s products, and SAM is obese (fat as hell). SAM is very unpleasant to be around and she never smiles. SAM always seems mad with the world. SAM is extremely ugly, dumber than dumb, and is out of shape with a flat, flat wide ass that looks like a big wide flat screen t.v. SAM deserves and needs to be fired immediately. Whoever hired her must have been drinking and blind. The next time you are in TJ’s (Metropol Ave.) slap SAMS face and give her your middle finger. SAM has a green tattoo on her right lower arm that is gross and disgusting. SAM works at TJ’s at 1133 Metropolitian Avenue, The managers name is Mark.
