Lucky We Live L.A.: The New York Trader Joe's Experience
Next time you complain about the ridiculous Silver Lake Trader Joe's parking lot (or any TJ's lot, for that matter, since they're all ridiculous), remember this: At least you're not stuck waiting in line at one of the Manhattan Trader Joe's.
On a quick visit this Sunday, I wound up in line for about 20 minutes. The line snaked through the store, even though about 20 registers were open. This TJ's (in Union Square) even employs workers to stand at the back of the line, holding big "BACK OF LINE" signs. It's also virtually impossible to walk around the store, squeezing around the check-out line and the gobs of people to grab items.
Silver Lake Trader Joe's, all is forgiven!
