If Trader Joe's coming is sooooo important, why did all these people move to an area where it didn't already exist?

Hey Ron! I'll drink to that! And smudge, you exemplify the utmost ignorance that runs rampant in this place. Trader Joes serves the middle to upper class. Where there is demand there should be supply and in a place where 1 out of 10 school children are homeless, the area could use a little revenue as well as jobs.

If 10% of your school children are indeed "homeless," then I suggest YOU are at the epicenter of social disgrace and ignorance, not me.
You dissertation on supply-side economics was enlightening...not. Enjoy your "Two Buck Check."

Well then, smudge with a lowercase s, your community is very fortunate to not need revenue or jobs. Without doubt though, most citys in this state are dramatically underfunded. Some without a police force or even a library.

Somebody dropped the ball somewhere and you are only adding to the problem by trying to discourage new business, especially ones that cater to the upper class.

If you don't stoke this fire, it will most definitely go out and it's only a matter of time before you start feeling the effects of that choice.

It's a prevailing thought, you're definitely not among the minority. But keeping new businesses out of the Rogue Valley will only guarantee a continued downtrend in the local economy that will effect all communities, yours too.

This is all I have time for, business calls. And yes, I bring outside money into the community. I do my part.

Everything is affordable here though Rob. And Two Buck Chuck isn't going to take the place of the old local standby Boonesfarm anytime soon.

By the way, Two Buck Chuck is not just an economical wine. It's a masterpiece in the eyes of wine aficionados and businessmen alike. Look at the commenting you folks have generated about it.

It's a world class wine, well known and respected, for only two bucks. Now, because it is in print here, Google will send their bots to scan this site and it will be searchable on Google.

I don't work for Trader Joe's either, just trying to keep my neighbor's from shooting themselves in the foot so much.

I have to go, got business to tend to.

All this hubabuloo and Trader Joe really isn't coming to the Rogue Valley. The local newspaper says the rumor is still a rumor. Don't always believe what you read.

We are talking about a grocery store still, right?

has anyone tried Shop and Kart in Ashland, a LOCAL store that has great prices, friendly staff. why bring yet another chain store to the valley; Two buck chuck is okey, but S&K's wine section offers similar deals from a variety of wineries. shop local and keep our local economy alive.

I hope they come to Eagle Point. It would be a shorter drive for me. Now, all we need is a Border's Books.
