Today Katharine Shilcutt reported that Trader Joes is coming to Houston. Some commenters were "meh," but others were excited, like Et:
Mark my words - Trader Joes will eventually dominate shopping scene. Pound for pound, there is no better store. High quality, unique items and EXTREMELY reasonably priced products will have Central Market and Whole Foods scrambling and consumers asking "why were similar items costing me so much before?"
Very interesting, Et. Can't wait to see if you're right.
