I remember how excited I was when Trader Joe's arrived in Manhattan. Wow, now I can shop at a store filled with fresh, innovative bargain-priced items. After first shopping there while visiting California, I remember praying that a branch would open in New York. The staff, signage, décor, labeling and Newsletter were so pretty and perky.
