Well, I just can’t resist a buzzed about new grocery store, so I headed over to the new Trader Joe’s store in Pittsford Plaza this morning. The store opened at 8 am, and by the time I got there around 10, it was steady, crowded, but not mobbed.
Today’s trip was mostly for recon, and I didn’t really do any real shopping, but I couldn’t resist these (and the bag was free today!):
My initial impressions? It’s a fun store, with fun, unique items. Rochester is definitely a foodie town, and I think TJ’s definitely has it’s place here. On the flip side? When I was walking out of TJ’s this morning, I heard a mom say to her kid, “ok, let’s head over to Wegmans now.”
Keep an eye out for an upcoming post where I’m going to put Trader Joe’s and Wegmans head to head in terms of price, value, and shopping experience. Who do you think will come out on top?
