It all started in the 50s... Would you believe they started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It's true. Way back in 1958. They were called Pronto Markets. In '67, their founder, the original Trader Joe, changed their name (yes, to Trader Joe's) and the way they do business.
They made the stores bigger (if you can imagine), decked the walls with cedar planks and donned their crew in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, they started packaging innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods under the "Trader Joe's" name. That cuts their costs and saves you money. Still does.
And that's important, because "Value" is a concept they take very seriously. And by 'Value,' they mean great everyday prices on all of their great products — no sales, no gimmicks, no clubs to join, no special cards to swipe... How do they do it?
It's not complicated. They just focus on what matters — great food + great prices = Value.
