It’s been speculated for some time, but it was announced today that the grocery store chain Trader Joe’s will be coming to town. The new store will set up shop in the old Office Max location on 79 Wolf Road in Colonie.

This is not your typical grocery store like Hannaford, Price Chopper or Shop Rite.According to Wikipedia,  Trader Joe’s describes itself as “your neighborhood grocery store” or “your unique grocery store”. Products sold include gourmet foods, organic foods, vegetarian food, unusual frozen foods, imported foods, domestic and imported wine and beer. About 80% of the items bear the Trader Joe’s brand name.

Another unique feature of Trader Joe’s is all the employees wear Hawaiian shirts, because they are traders on the culinary seas. There are also no PA systems used. A unique bell ringing system is used instead.

This store appears to have quite a following, we can only hope it will flourish here in the Capital Region.
