    Hummus quarter is the best ever u can get for $4.99. [regular+roastedGarlic+spicy+tomato]. We love it especially with yellow corn tortillas!!!!

    Aisles are skinny. Not a problem for TJ's shoppers, for the most part, but worth noting. The width would not work at Wal-Mart.

    Don't come the day before a big holiday that involves cooking! Be at least 2 days early to avoid the rush. Otherwise there's no parking!

    I love the product, but this place & the parking lot here is chock full of the biggest idiots on the planet. Sometimes I wonder if it's worth it... til I get home w/ all my goodies.

    No lie, this TJ's has the hottest women shopping in it all the time. They may be lesbian, but that's okay...I like women too. :-)

    Like pizza? How about dumb questions? So buy the $1.29 TJ pizza dough, their $2 jar of pizza sauce, and a few bucks in toppings. Better, cheaper, and healthier than any frozen pizza.

    Chimay Blue for $9.99!!! Lowest I've found it in SD -- way cheaper than Ralph's next door.
