Trader Joe's: Back ordered in Boston

Berheenia May 5, 2011 03:49 AM

Last month they ran out of Niman Ranch ham steaks (back-ordered and still not available), and this month frozen shrimp! There is a costly Blue Rock Shrimp but the usual variety of cooked and raw in various sizes is "back-ordered". Is this just in the Boston area?

    Are you sure that the Niman Ranch ham is still going to be stocked? On another TJ thread it was stated that the NR bacon (one of my staples...arrgggh) is discontinued and sure enough it's gone from the shelves at my TJ.

      No I'm not sure. The clerk just said back ordered. I'll have to ask. Thanks!

      Not available in our local California store either. They have lost their sources for uncooked wild shrimp, only fresh water.

        I was told the whole Gulf situation had affected their shrimp source. I miss it :(

          The shrimp are back, at least in Brookline MA.
