12 Tips and Secrets to Make the Most of Your Next Trader Joe's Trip
Trader Joe's is lauded and beloved for its tasty and convenient foods, its robust section of flowers, cards, and gifts, and, of course, its low prices. However, anyone who has ever set foot in a Trader Joe's will tell you that the well-known chain—which has popularized items like frozen Cauliflower Gnocchi and a scrumptious cheese dubbed Unexpected Cheddar—isn't a typical supermarket. But it is, in part, this commitment to doing things differently that has registered with consumers across the country.
First, the California-based brand doesn't have a weekly coupon circular, but shoppers are permitted to use coupons from various other brands (such as Annie's and Bumble Bee) in TJ's stores. Another thing that truly sets Trader Joe's apart from its competitors is the chain's commitment to both quality products and its shoppers. To that end, TJ's has a no-questions-asked return policy and allows customers to sample any ready-to-eat food of their choice.
