Trader Joe's Wants to Know if We Want a Store in Our Neighborhood

Sylvia Lacy from Herb Wesson's office contacted my neighbor, Norman Gilmore to let him know that Trader Joe's has expressed interest in putting in a store at Crenshaw & Rodeo. (Ralph's will be leaving that location when redevelopment starts, and isn't planning to come back.)

Norman is the Secretary on United Neighborhoods Neighborhood Council (UNNC,) maintains the Jefferson Park United website, and is handy with spreading the word about things, which is why he was contacted.

Councilman Wesson's office is encouraging the community to express their support so Trader Joe's will know we're interested in them coming to our neighborhood. Norman has put together petition you can sign if you want to tell Trader Joe's you support a store in our neighborhood.

 

The Benefits of Getting a Trader Joe's at Crenshaw & Rodeo

Ralphs has already announced it won't be coming back after the Crenshaw & Rodeo location gets redeveloped. And Albertsons just closed. So together with our new Fresh N' Easy a Trader Joe's would help make up for the stores we're losing, and make sure we still have a number of convenient choices for grocery shopping. I often shop at the Trader Joe's in Culver City because they have some of the best prices on staples like eggs and milk (plus they have those dried cherry "raisins" that I love!)

CLICK HERE to read and sign the petition

Just scroll down the page, fill in your info, click submit, and then be sure to CLICK ON THE CONFIRMATION LINK IN THE EMAIL YOU WILL RECEIVE so your signature will be considered valid.

Or you can also write a letter to Herb Wesson's office directly in support of the new store, and they will pass it on.

And please spread the word to anyone who might want to express their support. It's easy to do - you can just send them a link to this post, or a link directly to the petition page.

I was at Alberton's tonight--it was open. Maybe you mean they plan to close? That would be so cool for a TJ's to be at Rodeo/Crenshaw!

Yes! I don't think they understand the opportunity they are missing if they don't open a store in the neighborhood. I'm getting tired of driving to Culver City to buy coffee, olives, wine, and toilet paper.

I shop at the Trader Joe's in Culver City at least once per week.  If Trader Joes was serious, they would ask customers in the Culver City and Westchester stores for their zip codes.  This would be evidence of how many of us spend money there.
