Trader Joe's is a neighborhood grocery store with amazing food and drink from around the globe and around the corner. Great quality at great prices. That's what we call value.
Go for free samples no matter what
Trader Joes usually has great checkers but this one does seem to have the friendliest staff. Store is laid out nicely but not enough parking
This is a great store, but perhaps Pleasanton's worst parking lot.
Always crowded! Don't forget to bring your own bags! The TJ bags are 99 cents and though they look flimsy they're really strong.
There is lotion and salt scrub demos in the restroom.
The parking lot is an extreme test in one's ability to observe their surroundings
Stay away on weeknights and weekends when it's busy. The checkers, although nice, are a bit slow.
Don't forget to try the samples and a small cup of coffee
This TJ's has the friendliest staff ever! Love the guy who's always given me great recommendations on wines every time.
Tue 'very green' fresh juice is incredibly healthy, and doesn't have that wheat-grass lawn mower taste.
the cinnamon twist bread is so yummy that even my dogs find ways to get to it!
If you're underpaid Pete, then perhaps find another job? :)
During busy times, use the back exit to get out of the parking lot
Pizza dough in a bag--easier than making your own and easy to use
If you help bag your own groceries, the under payed and over worked employees greatly appreciate it! :)
Try the cinnamon twist bread, it's awesome
If you ask nicely, the demo person will give you cookies!
My favorite Trader Joe's, hands down. Always clean, stocked, and ready to go. Staff is friendly and helpful. Grocery shop here!
Can get Hendrick's Gin here...just the right hint of cucumber for when you mix your Serendipity!
Check out the wines. Ask for Len. He's got some great tips for good values!
