Trader Joe’s - San Rafael

Trader Joe’s will be celebrating their 50th anniversary this year! The first Trader Joe’s opened its doors in Pasadena, CA in 1967 and quickly began crafting their brand as a wholesome store (with their team dressed in cool Hawaiian shirts), offering great value on all their products. They reached 400 stores 3 years ago and continue to add more each year. We just started picking up from their San Rafael store a couple Sundays ago and their staff has been great to work with!
