No, I haven't. And I don't intend to either as I won't ever be shopping there. Of course any company willing to exploit it's workers in another land will have lower prices. You choosing to save your self a few bucks will ensure they are able to continue to take our nations money to theirs then we can borrow it back with interest as a national debt. Excellent plan you have there.
I'm not sure you quite understand theTJ's concept. Most of the products in the store appear under the house brand because they skip the distributor and buy directly from the producer, thus eliminating cost that usually gets passed on to the consumer. If you'd check, a large number of the products at TJ's are certified fair trade, so the people producing the food/products are getting a fair price for their efforts. No matter where a farmer happens to live, that's a good goal.

Hi... does anyone know the phone number & person/ dept you call at TJ's to make a request for a store in an area you live in? Not that this will make them do it, but it had to start somewhere with the DM store!

Thanks..

PS is everyone enjoying this marvelous weather?

No. America. It's a foreign based company, no profits stay here. We lose our national leverage by purchasing from foreign corporations. It's not a good thing.

It's a Canadian chain. It's not "overseas" labor. You can't really use it as your staple grocery store, but they have gourment stuff at a low price. Quit complaining and try the 5 dollar 3-pack of montchevre.

I believe it's German. Either way America loses and our money goes " overseas" as I already stated. If you don't care to support our nation that's your business.
