    The worst parking lot in Los Angeles!

    Neat! The weathervane on top of the store is a mammoth and a sabretoothed cat - two ice age mammals found at the tar pits up the street!!

    Friendly workers but parking is useless except early morning. If you can, walk here. Afternoons they often take up spots with their own deliveries and palettes.

    Go to another TJs. They are always out of everything after it takes 15 min to park!

    DO NOT come here after 7pm coz they close their larger parking lot and their small lot is ther WORST in LA

  • Sarah T.

    Too many extreme douchbags parking oversized vehicles in the Compact spots. It's a problem!

    Sarah T. · October 22, 2013
  • SunnyinLA

    They have this one stoner / surfer dude who chats A LOT and takes FOREVER to check out the person ahead of you. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

    Poor selection of Gluten Free lubricants.

    Sparkle plenty! Louise d'Estree Methode Traditionnelle Brut is perfect for making morning mimosas or toasting a crowd, and only $8. Find more bubbly bargains:

    Ask the nice gals in back for suggestions on anything. Jen and Barb won't steer you wrong.

    Cashiers here have so much drama... on par with Hollywood. Quick yapping and scan my stuff already.

    Chateauneuf du Pape (2010) for $18.99. Young but elegant.

    If you think parking is awful, wait til you see how bad the interior floor plan of this trader joes is. Bigger people jam inside ---- no joke : /.

    Get as many of the frozen chicken tikka masalas as you can. They sell out quick.

    No lines after 1am!

    An easy fix to the parking situation is to park across the street at Ralph's. Then just bring your bags to your car and save 25 minutes trying to get in and out of the TJ's lot!

    Joshua B. · October 25, 2011
  • David T.

    Cute workers, a little dessert for yourself...

    David T. · October 5, 2011
  • Steve W.

    Use the back lot!

    Steve W. · June 23, 2011
  • Justin G.

    Be careful when buying large quantities. Scanners are sensative and double charge. Watch receipt.

    Justin G. · June 22, 2011
  • Paige F.

    Do yourself a favor and buy the frozen raviolone with mushrooms in beef broth. You'll thank yourself later.

    These should be illegal!

    All the cashiers are busy yak-taking about football among themselves even as there are long lines to attend to.

    Worst parking (witnessed accidents), RUDE employees-Asked if he knew where I could find a certain item, just replied "yes" & continued working!! Also, employees talking in middle of parking lot- move!
