Trader Joe: Hipness in a Bag of Chips

Trader JoeTrader Joe charms me, a little bit of hippiness in every four walls, no matter whether downtown Hollywood or suburban Tucson. Just walk in and get a little jolt of the 60’s, in a heartbeat.  So when a customer asked me where to find a certain product, “You DO work here, don’t you,” I don’t know whether to be flattered or disgusted so I guess I’ll just be amused… I was carrying a basket BTW… They’ve always got a good selection of wine, of course, and beers, and other rites of passage from youth to adulthood, spring into summer, Europe into America, not to mention free shots of coffee, and hors d’oeuvre, sweet nothings, side jobs, no-brainers, baguettes and blog-ettes…
