As a native Arizonan, I decided to let all of the excitement of the Trader Joe's opening pass before I checked it out. However, I didn't even last two weeks. It was like returning home as I entered the store. Everyone was friendly, smiling and offering free samples; yet, it wasn't nearly as crowded as I had imagined it to be for noon on a Tuesday.

Not only does this store offer the cheapest wine for your buck with their ever popular, "Two Buck Chuck" ($2.99), but they offer a huge variety of frozen and prepackaged foods that are easy to eat on-the-go, offer nutritious value, and are tough to find anywhere else!

Whether you're already a Trader Joe's fan or you just want to check out what all the hype is about, it certainly won't disappoint! Happy shopping!
