History Of Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s is 2 buck chuck and so much more. It all started in the 50s when Joe Coulombe opened the first Pronto Market in the Los Angeles CA area. These original “convenience stores” were much like 7-Elevens. Thinking that it wasn’t to smart to compete against the “big” chain, The name was changed to Trader Joe’s in 1967.
With the name change, Trader Joe’s began offering hard to find items in the now familiar “Trader Joe’s” brand. That innovative decision, lowered costs and established the “value” marketing that continues today.
The first Trader Joe’s opened in Pasadena California with an larger footprint, cedar plank walls and, yes, the crews of people in Hawaiian shirts.
Today, Trader Joe’s boasts over 400 stores across the United States. About 50% are still in California.
