What would we do without TJ's!

Posted on 08 / 28 / 2013

Now that TJ's finally has an actual vegan cheese I figured the time was right to actually review them on here. Especially since realizing they currently only have a 1-star rating. We shop here about once per week and love it. Most of their foods are easily labeled as being vegan or gluten free which is such a time saver when shopping with 2 little kids. It's also reassuring to know that none of their private label food items contain GMO so again, less label reading and more peace of mind. The staff here is beyond friendly. I can't recall a single time I've been treated less than enthusiastically even when my kid knocked several hummus containers on the floor and broke them (so embarrassing). No charge, quick cheerful clean up and no drama. They also take things back no questions asked if you don't like something.

We love Trader Joe's and are so glad they're in Vancouver. I hope they continue to increase their vegan selections as they have been in recent years. As a note, the shredded vegan cheese they have available is great, very comparable to Diaya in flavor and meltability and less expensive too.

Pros: Clearly labeled Vegan products., Coffee samples with soy creamer!, No GMO in store brand products.
Cons: Can't do all grocery shopping here, Limited organic produce selections

Worst TJs around

Posted on 04 / 07 / 2013

This is the worst Trader Joe's in the Portland metro area: limited selection, unfriendly, unhelpful staff and management that is unresponsive to customer service issues.
