Trader Joe's food delivered to your door

If the service was offered in your neighborhood would you use it?

Thru Instacart you can!

Has anyone used this service?

  1. I wouldn't use it.

    To me, a large part of the "charm" shopping Trader Joe's is schlepping the aisles for the unique product I haven't seen before.

    1. Since I live in a community where the nearest TJ is ~1 hr away and I no longer can drive...I would TOTALLY use this service.

      Will check out the site you mentioned...

      1. Most emphatically "Yes." The Trader Joe's in Philadelphia offends me because it's oriented away from the street, yet I like some of their offerings.

        As I don't have a car, the charge is quite reasonable.

        PS I would not be buying produce as there's a year-round Farmer's Market in my neighborhood, lovely, historic Powelton Village.

        1. while i love to wander the store and shop that way, I am limited to using a wheelchair- so would love for that option to be available- in fact one of the considerations for a new place to live (not so totally car dependent) is ez accessibility and some form of delivery. so a big yes

          1. As the Oracle of Delphi once said, "Know thyself." I'd use this program in a heartbeat BECAUSE... "Look, Ma, NO impulse buying!

            What could be better than that?

              Well...umm....impulse buying would be better for me. Like RedTop, I like the TJ's random finds experience!

              Although I actually did make it out of there a couple of weeks ago for under $30...a new world's record!
