Trader Joe’s was started back in 1958 as a chain of little convenience stores called Pronto Markets. In ’67 their founder changed the name to Trader Joe’s. They made the stores bigger and selected fun Hawaiian shirts for employees to wear. The company works to cut costs and bring customers good value on the health food and other products they sell. They are quite popular and continue to open stores throughout the U.S. I only wish they’d open one close to where we live in southwest Missouri.
Health Food Obsession
I wanted to go to Trader Joe’s for a long time. If you’re one of the lucky ones who live close to a Trader Joe’s it’s probably not a big deal to you. But for me, it was. I love trying the latest health foods!
That, and I tend to get excited about the little things in life.
If you’ve never been, they have fresh produce and all sorts of healthy foods, including gluten-free, vegan and kosher items. The prices are reasonable too, especially when you consider the quality of food you’re getting.
We bought some apples and the best natural peanut butter I’ve ever tasted. David, my dear husband, and I talked about how we can’t believe there’s not a Trader Joe’s in Springfield, close to where we live, and he started dreaming about opening one of our own. I love my entrepreneurial guy!
