    My TA just informed me that she heard TJ's was coming to Downtown Disney. Can anyone confirm? If this is true, Disney will really have everything!!

    Probably referencing the rumor that Trader Sam's (not Trader Joe's) is coming

    I open stores for them..... I can ASSURE YOU, NO STORE IN DOWNTOWN DISNEY OR THE VILLAGES. You will be enjoying one in Winter Park. I would assume that it will be a larger store and very awesome!! Until then, try and enjoy the 3 locations that are presently in the state, with many more to come!!

    Thank you for setting the record straight! We have 3 Trader Joe stores here in Charlotte, NC, and I am a very loyal customer! :love: In fact, I will be making a Trader Joe's run this week to stock up on essentials for our DW trip, leaving in 7 days! :banana:

    (You open stores for them?!?! Normal, IL would like to send you a huge basket of mini-muffins if you have any input into where those stores are placed...)

    I must be one of the only person who is completely underwhelmed with TJs...it's hectic, organic vegetables spoil very quickly (I've tried a few times and it just amazes me each time) and the selection of other products is abysmal.

    Quit making us jealous! We will trade you a TJ for a Wegmans and we'll even throw in a Kroger as a bonus!

    I couldn't agree more. There is no substitute for a Wegman's and every week when we go shopping I'm reminded as such.

    I have many Wegman's, but I have never heard of Trader Joe's. Is it a grocery store like Wegman's.

    I love Trader Joe, but likely would never need it in DTD as I tend to do the dining plan.

    Well, it's a grocery store of sorts if you use the term lightly. The best description for them is probably a "Gourmet Aldi". They have organic foods, including many prepared ones. The stores are normally quite small, and at 1st glance seem quite unorganized, which they are in a sense. They have an almost cult following by people who love them, but many people don't. Most, if not all of them also sell wine. The wine shops claim to fame is a wine called "2 Buck Chuck" a generic wine is price has risen from that in the name.

    They are not even close to Wegman's in terms of quality and service.

    Lol, what are Wegman's and Kroger's? Obviously not a New England thing, I suppose? We have Wal-Mart and Market Basket (affectionately referred to as Market Bucket by the young folk)...also a smaller chain of Hannaford stores.

    We'd gladly take a TJs in Claremont, NH...;)
