It is a lot like Whole Foods, according to people I know. I have never been there. It specializes in organic foods and prepared ready to heat up foods plus cheap but good wine. If the potstickers are less expensive than the potsrtickers at Harris Teeter, I will start going there once a month.
There is a website. www.traderjoes.com
I have heard that you can spend a bundle there.
I shop mainly at Harris Teeter and my other store is Food Lion. I go to Farm Fresh sometimes. Unlike Sunshine, I don't go to Kroger. I like to use my store cards and I like to use coupons. I save at least $5 every week with a store card. I watch sales. Because it's just me, I buy things like Savorings by Pillsbury, but if I had a family I wouldn't buy them. Does that make any sense? I will buy frozen appetizers and eat them for a meal instead of going out to a meal in town. My cleaning woman says that I keep a nice supply of foods in the fridge, pantry, and freezer. She worried about me (if I got sick & couldn't get out for food) until she "snooped" while she cleaned. She says that if I were feeling good, I could rival the local gourmet shop with what I could prepare to eat.
Richmond is getting a Whole Foods.
