    Friendly staff. Clean. Love the flowers; they last about 2 weeks. Sampler area is lovely and I've gotten many items after trying. Sunday's can be SO busy. New credit card machine is slow.

    People have been curious about Trader Joe's dog food and how healthy it is- just be sure to check the ingredients as some start with "corn"... Skip those. Buy the ones that say corn and soy free!

    Did you know that the Lincoln Park TJ'S re-distributes about $40,000 of food into our neighborhoods each week? The staff here rocks. Thanks for choosing to be socially responsible. Great team :)

    Love the layout of this Trader Joes. The staff is super friendly. Try to avoid the after-work crowd by shopping anytime outside the hours of 5 and 7 p.m. on weekdays.

    If you like making homemade healthy pizzas, go to the produce section on the left when you walk in and buy the premise whole wheat pizza doughs! Yummy and cheap!!

    Avoid Sunday afternoons and evenings - the lines are insane. Otherwise, can't go wrong with Trader Joes. Try the chocolate covered pomegranate seeds. Magic in your mouth.

    Best place ever to grocery shop! They just don't have daiya, nutritional yeast, rooster sauce, or a super spicy salsa. :( other than that, perfection.

    Avoid on Mondays after work -- tends to get super crazy from 5-8. Otherwise, great layout. Produce is by far the best value in the area.

    This Traders is an awesome addition to the area. Absolutely can't beat their produce except for maybe at the Farmer's Market.......maybe.....

    Get the roasted red pepper spread with eggplant and garlic with their sea salted pita chips. Makes for a great snack!

    Surprise! They don't carry heads of cabbage so if shopping for making sauerkraut you'll need to go elsewhere.

    Since when am I expected to bag my own groceries? I mean it w all due respect- but it's not MY job. I don't know which way to bag things best... Customer service is getting progressively worse. Ugh

    The construction is blocking the parking lot entrance on Diversey. Unacceptable. Last time I'm coming here until they fix this crap.
