Downtown TJs

Posted on 08 / 22 / 2015

This Trader Joe's is the most central, smallest and busiest in the city. They are more likely to be out of things than other locations, but it almost always does the job by packing in selection with loads of vegetarian and vegan foods in those small aisles. They do good work to get you through, keeping all checkouts staffed, but if you go at peak hours be prepared to wait for checkout.

The parking lot is shared with other stores in the complex (Bed Bath & Beyond, Nordstrom Rack) and the downstairs lot is often busy. I recommend parking on 9th if the meters aren't running, or going upstairs in the lot. There is also a bus stop right next to the building.

Pros: Convenient, Cheap
Cons: Cramped, Busy

The Usual Trader Joe's Stuff

Posted on 09 / 09 / 2012

I've been to so many Trader Joe's, this one offers the same usual items. Not particularly a nice space (I've been to nicer), and the entrance was a bit tricky to find. It's sandwiched between other big stores, so I had to ask for help to find the entrance. Small/moderate size, a bit tight, very busy - typical of Trader Joe's.
