Earlier I made a post regarding a petition to bring Whole Foods to Cape Girardeau. Someone made a suggestion that they would like to see a trader Joes come to cape. I feel the same way.

Therefore, if you would like to see Trader Joe's bring a store to the Cape Girardeau area, go to there website at the link below. This will bring up a form which will allow you to submit a location request. With any luck, several requests for one will tell the company we want a better choice of quality, affordable food to a store in our area.

So not happening. It won't go over in Cape because people here cannot afford to eat their overpriced foods. Don't you see that parking lot over at Aldi, Country Mart, Walmart and Schnucks? They are using food stamps mostly. These stores will simply not survive in our area. Sorry.

Trader Joes is owned by one of the Aldi brothers. Their food is very low priced. I don't think you know what a Trader Joe's is. They are famous for the 3 buck chuck which is a $3 bottle of wine. Joe's would do very well here.

Well said Dude, Whole Foods might or might not survive. Who knows, there are the very wealthy residents here in Cape. But Trader Joes would for sure. They are low priced and the food there is great. Try there chocolate covered potato chips as an example.

Shop at Aldis if you want TJ foods. Exact same stuff, less snooty packaging.

It will never work in this area. Trader Joes seemed filled with a good amount of organic and healthy food. One must remind themselves this area isn't progressive nor health conscious. After all, we are the type of people who become outraged at the suggestion of not allowing smoking in restaurants.

You are confusing two issues. The outrage over smoking in restaurants had nothing to do with cigs per se. It had everything to do with personal freedom/liberties.

So your saying in progressive states where restaurant smoking is illegal, and that just happen to be often classified as having healthier citizens (obesity and heart disease rates per capita), they somehow care less about personal freedoms? California? Arizona? Colorado? None of those states care about personal freedoms? Ha!! Nonsense.

It is a matter of health, education and being progressive against something that had been proven to kill 1 out of 3 users.
