I've read the previous reviews and they are pretty dated, almost three years since the last one. I moved here from Chicago almost a year ago and was excited to have a Trader Joe's where I live (they are all over Illinois). I found this store to be fun, clean, and the staff over the top in terms of helpfulness. One of the managers said that they had a "Captain" turnover a year and a half ago and that he has resurrected the store. Great job!!

As for Trader Joe's the store-I love it-but not the one in Orange. I found it really crowded, not enough of my favorites in stock and to me didn't look the cleanest. My favorite so far is the one in Danbury-they have a great selection and I love going there-they have what I need when I need it. Love to try some of the different frozen foods and always stock up on nuts, their yummy cherry preserves, etc. and if they have them that day I always get myself some miniature roses and some chocolate croissants-worth the trip right there.

When I first became a vegetarian in 1992, local supermarkets didn't cater to vegetarians (except the produce and Kosher departments). To go to a health food store, I'd pay $30 for a single bag's worth of groceries.

Friends in California raved about Trader Joe's. When they came to Connecticut, I was delighted.

The store is always clean. Staff is always helpful. Trader Joe's hires friendly associates. They do NOT discriminate against tattoos. (I prefer to spend my money at businesses that are tattoo friendly. Few things are as annoying than going to a business that's happy to take your money but whose policies discriminate against the way I look!) They always offer samples of new items.

The prices are great. I can feed a family of three for under $8, with a fancy, healthy, vegetarian meal. My fussy, elderly father has raved - loudly - about pizza made with their ingredients, and about their generic "meatless" meatballs. (They don't taste like meat, but they are tasty.) They carry vegetarian products that the large supermarket sells, but for far less. Their generic cleaning products are cruelty-free, and are about 1/5 of what I paid at the health food store. I can usually get three or four bags of food and cleaning products for under $40. Their facial sugar scrub works wonders on my skin, and at $6, it is 1/3 the cost of what I'd paid at a skin shop in the mall. (I also use it on my hands to increase circulation, since I have nerve damage)

I wish they were closer to my house; I haven't done my regular weekly shopping there since gas prices went up. (Even with the savings on groceries, I can't justify the expense.) However, when I'm anywhere near Trader Joe's, I'll detour!

Pros: Free parking. Prices for vegetarian food and ingredients are usually FAR less than the local average.

Cons: Complimentary letters to Corporate go unanswered. (Larger chains usually answer my letters.) Their produce isn't as good as the local supermarket.

I WAS RECOMMENDED TO GO TO TRADER JOE'S IN MILFORD.
I WASN'T THE LEAST BIT HAPPY IN THE TINY SPANSE OF THIS MARKET.
BEING OVERCROWDED AND UNDERSTAFFED MADE MATTERS WORSE.

PROS:
CONS: LIMITED MOBILITY HERE

...But not enough unusual items that you can't find in supermarkets.
I wish they'd add an addition on to it.
In the summer, it gets really hot in there.

PROS:
CONS: limited mobility,too small

I like it because they have a wide range of ETHNIC FOODS. Good produce section and UNUSUAL ITEMS.
However they should WIDEN THE ISLES, as it is very DIFFICULT to squeeze through, especially with a shopping cart.

PROS: a little of everything
CONS: tight,small isles

My boyfriend and i shop here once a month sometimes more. This store has a lot of quality frozen food items that come in handy when you want to make a quick meal that's still good, or want to impress your last minute guests with some great appetizers or desserts. Its also fun for a appetizer dinner night or football season. The bruchetta sauce is great and the frozen stuffed ravioli is very convenient. Its not very expensive but doesnt have all the needs you would get at a regular grocery store.

Conveniently located on the Boston Post Road. The staff is both knowledgable and helpful. Excellent Quality and selection of food items. Aslo sells produce, frozen foods and breads. Strip mall parking is just fine.
