Trader Joe's is freakin' awesome. I could survive solely on their pot stickers and pimento cheese dip (not together) and live a perfectly happy life. Chio's wife was a Trader Joe's employee for awhile and she said it is a fantastic company to work for. I believe it! Everyone always seems happy to be there so must it must be a positive work environment.
Did you know the smallest Trader Joe's store in the world is located on Boylston Street in Boston?! And according to the Trader Joe's subreddit group, it is that store's claim to fame:
Love that! Wear it like a badge of honor! It should be noted that the sign is in the style of Massachusetts Entering Town Signs which are specific to the state.
Reddit user welluasked commented:
"I used to go to this one when I was in school in Boston. Taking that escalator downstairs was like entering someone’s basement full of bootlegged TJs products."
LOL what a hilarious description!
The store is so teeny that the line often wraps around the entire store! Sometimes it makes more sense to get in line and shop as the line moves. But I have been told that their stock is impressive considering the size!
So the question begs to be asked...
WHAT THE HECK DID THEY DO DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE PANDEMIC!?
Well according to this Instagram post, they could only let about 1 or 2 people into the store at one time.
So the moral of the story? Don't judge a Trader Joe's by it's size! This bite sized store has just as much love inside as a massive location. And all of the pumpkin products you could dream of!
