“5 mins til #TraderJoes opens on U street! They’re handing out free grocery bags.”

And thanks to a reader for sending these photo updates:

“The woman in purple MAY have been the first shopper to check out; accounts are murky…”



“The store was bustling, crowded and fun. Employees and shoppers alike both seemed happy and excited about the moment.”


“The rarely seen trader Joe’s loading dock, where the real magic happens. Lots of wine on pallets moving in here.”
