    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.

    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 :)

    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!

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    My first time to discover the great ORGANIC savings I can get from here. Move over "Whole Foods"... This is my new Grocery Home.

    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.

    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
