It all started in the 50s… Would you believe we started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It’s true. Way back in 1958. We were called Pronto Markets. In ‘67, our founder, the original Trader Joe, changed our name (yes, to Trader Joe’s) and the way we do business.
We made the stores bigger (if you can imagine), decked the walls with cedar planks and donned our crew in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, we started packaging innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods under the “Trader Joe’s” name. That cut our costs and saved you money. Still does. And that’s important, because “Value” is a concept we take very seriously. And by ‘Value,’ we mean great everyday prices on all of our great products — no sales, no gimmicks, no clubs to join, no special cards to swipe… How do we do it?
- We buy direct from suppliers whenever possible, we bargain hard to get the best price, and then pass the savings on to you.
- If an item doesn’t pull its weight in our stores, it goes away to gangway for something else.
- We buy in volume and contract early to get the best prices.
- Most grocers charge their suppliers fees for putting an item on the shelf. This results in higher prices… so we don’t do it.
- We keep our costs low — because every penny we save is a penny you save.
It’s not complicated. We just focus on what matters — great food + great prices = Value.

It's the holiday season, so I've put myself on a bit of a moratorium from my usual Sephora habit, since I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who deserves presents this Christmas. That said, I occasionally get my fix by drifting through their virtual aisles and living vicariously through friends' shopping sprees, ... […]
If you're silently seething and barely breathing, you may be doing Christmas wrong

I watched two drivers engage in a scream/middle finger/scream/horn showdown in the Trader Joe's parking lot last week and thought, “Well, it's December. We're all just a to-do list away from manslaughter.” I take full responsibility for buying into the chaotic pace of the holidays. I seem to be incapable of ... […]
