Afterwards we drove another 20 minutes so I could finally go to a Trader Joes. I read so many blogs where the authors rave about Trader Joes, I was so excited to check it out. Needless to say I was kind of disappointed. I don't know exactly what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't what I was expecting. LOL I guess I really just expected it to be much bigger. It was just a small grocery store. A small grocery store that was packed with people. You couldn't even get down the aisles. Maybe in other towns they are bigger?? Also, this one has only been open for two weeks so maybe that's why it was packed. I might check it out again if one opens closer to my home but I definitely wouldn't make the hour plus drive again just for that store.
If you have one in your town I would love to know what you think if you shop there.
Here are some photos from today:
