    JD sorry about your situation. Having worked in the corporate side of the grocery biz before I can tell you that you are correct. When time comes to decide which to shutter there is no thought to the customer base. Ironically tragic because as anyone knows who can read headline knows its cheaper to keep a customer than make a new one so I guess.

    So has Anyone try/like the new gluten free beer award-winningly called NGB made by TJs? For the gluten sensitive like me who like beer I think it's a better alternative to Redbridge. But it ain't no Bards.

    You should move to Long Beach JD, our TJ's are easy to get to.

Well...which one do you think got assed out in the 'we gotta close one' sweepstakes????? Yup. my CONVENIENT little one. I know...boo-hoo...but if this is progress I want none of it. It's not like my TJ's had no customers. LOTS of folks shop there. Including my neighbor, who has no transportation and walks there and back. The other three options literally guarantee that I will limit my shopping at TJ's moving forward. Do they give a rats ass? Nope...doubt it, because they have the Prius driving, texting/talking while walking their dogs a-holes that frequent the remaining stores. My suggestion to you Trader Joes... Bite my bag!
    I'm just reading this and WTF?? I LOVED that TJ's! I live in Hollywood and that's the one I always used to go to because it had awesome parking. I hate the other ones you mention, especially the new one by the Farmer's Market. That parking is made for those mushroom cars. I think almost all their spaces are compact. I now go to the one below the W hotel. It's ok, but I hate that you have to get a parking ticket and validation.

    Hmmm, I am having Trader Joe's pumpkin waffles! :D

    Who wants some? I have syrup, but not from Vermont though. :(

    Vermont Maple Syrup is great, but expensive! :O

    Having worked at 2 of the 4 you mentioned, I am bummed that your favorite one got the axe.
    I always heard they wanted to redesign and reopen it, for what it's worth.
    Then again, some days I don't even recognize my hip little grocery store anymore. Just go to the Sunset and Crescent Hts, take a deep breath, look at the old LP album covers and check out the Cookie Butter and Cocoa Almond swirl jars.
    Sorry I can't do more, I'm in Trader Joe's East now.

    I see Cookie Butter all the time at TJ. I wanna buy it, but I don't exactly know how to use it.
