“Everyone go shop at Trader Joe’s ASAP!”

Trader Joe’s, originally uploaded by baobee.

So says a reader (in the comments section of yesterday’s rant or revel) who is going to potentially make a lot of folks very, very happy.

“I was just there and the cashier asked me what my zip code was — when I said 20010, she said “Yeah, that’s mine too. It would be nice if we had one of these in our neighborhood, wouldn’t it? That’s what the survey is for.” Which I took to mean that they are thinking about opening up a TJ’s in another part of DC and looking to see where their customer base lives. I don’t know how long they will be surveying customers, but if you want a TJ’s somewhere in POPville, it couldn’t hurt to head on down to Foggy Bottom and tell them where you live! (Sorry if I’m overly excited, but my cats like their cat food and the trek down to Foggy Bottom every other week kind of sucks. Ah, a girl can dream…)”

Would you be stoked to get a Trader Joe’s or will you be sated by an Ellwood Thompson’s coming to the DC USA project on 14th Street?
