This is an old (2010) article from Fortune Magazine about Trader Joe's - I just stumbled across it and found it really interesting:

I feel bad for Bane. ElDorado, AR isn't the best place to relocate. That's my dad's hometown. Lol.

Great article! I want to work there.

Thanks for posting. I forwarded this to a friend of mine who found out they are getting a Trader Joes not too far from their home in Fort Lauderdale.

At the register the perky cashier offers up that the mango sorbet Flickinger has selected is on her top 10 list of favorite Trader Joe's items.

Without fail, each time I shop at TJ's the cashier comments on at least one of the items in my basket as being a favorite. LOL...and I usually I agree with the cashier! Must be part of their training. Who knew it was such a great place to work too.

Interesting article. I, too, enjoyed it! Thanks.

Yeah, thanks Lindsay!

I used to know Joe and Alice back in the day (Alice is a big opera fan). But I really didn't know much about how it's being run lately. I actually know the selling price to Albrecht, but I guess Joe doesn't want it shared about, so I'll just tease you. ;-)
