Reader: Trader Joe's fans want to go to Food Disneyland

Categories: Cafe Society

After decades of drought, suddenly metro Denver will be flooded with four Trader Joe's -- great news for fans of the California-based chain, and a big yawn for everyone else. Jenn Wohletz worships at the church of Joe's, but even she has found flaws with the store, as she revealed last week.

And while some shoppers jumped to Joe's defense, others don't think the store lives up to the hype. Says AceRanchero:

I think I finally get it. For those folks who "love" Trader Joe's and "can't wait" until they get opened in Denver: they don't want to shop for groceries, they want to go to Food Disneyland for frozen potstickers and really crappy $3 wine. Instead of of Mickey and Minnie they get Brad from Congress Park wearing a Hawaiian Shirt. Let's all sing a song... "it's a small, small [market] after all..."

There are 3 trader joes within a 10 mile radius of my home town in NJ. After just moving to Denver, I can honestly say that I miss TJs. They are nothing as crazy as people are making them out to be but nevertheless, fantastic grocery stores... They have bottom-line, the best food you can buy for yourself CHEAPER than king soopers. And they are nowhere near as pretentious as a Whole Foods.
