I can not understate my squealing-outloud-when-I-heard enthusiasm for this news!!!!!!!!! My friend Megan was the first to break it to me, and then I found this very official looking story to confirm that Trader Joe’s is going to open two stores in 2011 in the KC Metro Area. One will be right by the kosher Hen House at 4201 W. 119th Street and the other will be on Ward Parkway in the old Staples store.
And the news just keeps getting better because:
1. As far as I know, TJ stores do take manufacturer coupons on the limited number of non-store brand items they sell, including Stoneyfield yogurt, Morningstar patties, and Kashi cereal!
2. TJs has an extensive inventory of kosher products, which you can see on this link (it’s a PDF file, so you will need to have Adobe Acrobat installed to read it.)
So, who else is super psyched? What TJ items can’t you wait to add to your grocery list?
