Trader Joe's

Trader Joe's
We discovered this Trader Joe's by accident. Trader Joe's is a chain of specialty, small-format grocery stores. The average Trader Joe's carries 4,000 products vs. 50,000 at an average, large-format American supermarket. The chain has a reputation of stocking somewhat upmarket, fair-trade, gourmet and unusual food items.

Don, Rupert and I were quite excited to come across a Trader Joe's and we all bought a few things there, as it doesn't operate in Canada.

Having said that, people in Vancouver can buy a very limited selection of Trader Joe's products at a shop called Pirate Joe's, whose owner pays retail prices and buys Trader Joe's products in Washington state, then bring them back to Vancouver to resell in his shop. Despite (understandably) the very high prices at Pirate Joe, the shop is popular and does good business.

Pirate Joe's was made famous across North America because Trader Joe's sued, but lost, to stop Pirate Joe's from reselling Trader Joe's products in Canada.
