Trader Joe's is an American supermarket retailer located in Monrovia, California. In 2015, he had been a leader in foodstuffs "new style" in the US. Trader Joe's had over 503 stores in 42 states and Washington, D.C. nationally by November 2019.
Joe Coulombe took over the town in 1958 from a small chain of convenience stores. They became known as the Pronto Markets. The entire idea was fast. and before we even knew what convenience stores were, they were comfort stores. The kind of position from, say, a bunch of gum to the pantyhose.
The comforts shop style just didn't make sense after 10 years of Pronto Markets. Therefore, Joe, the typical capitalist, has noticed that the population of the United States is shifting due to the G.I. Bill of Rights, a major mass higher education project, presented an opportunity to offer something more.
In Pasadena, California, founder Joe Coulombe opened the first trader Joe shop in 1967. From 1979 until his death in 2010, when his descendants were owned it was owned by German billionaire Theo Albrecht. The ALDI Nord, to which Trader Joe belong, is also the property of the family of Albrecht. In the United States, Aldi Süd runs another Aldi company, which uses the name and logo of Aldi. The business has branches in Massachusetts and Monrovia and Boston.
And then, in 1972, Joe introduced a total game changer to Trader Joe 's ... It's Granola. Not any granola, though. This was Trader Joe's first private label product. We never looked back after granola.
Focusing on private labels (products with the name "Trader Joe's" on them) simplified a lot of things and removed a lot of costs – no more slot fees, marketing fees, middlemen 's fees. We have passed those savings on to our customers (still do) because the value of the value of the value is invaluable. And to us, "Value" means offering the best quality products at the best daily prices.
As of October 8, 2019, Trader Joe's had 504 stores in the United States with stores being added on a regular basis. In 2017, Trader Joe opened 14 new stores nationwide. The majority of the locations were between 10,000 and 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2). California is home to the largest number of stores with 183 open in the state.
Each location shall be designed to represent its respective area. Each store has its own staff members who create artwork to represent the surrounding neighborhood. Some stores have their own "find the mascot" and children can get a prize when they tell a staff member where the "hide" is.
Trader Joe's is a tiki-nautical themed establishment, but local stores may include props to blend into the local area; for example, a surfing theme for a store near the beach. In addition to their interior, stores are specialized in the supply of goods to the people of that location.
