Trader Joes,

That is a lovely little store!

In Arizona, I buy from Fry's and Walmart, in that order. I also buy candy from the World Trade Market.

In Montana, it's from Safeway, Harvest Foods, McGowan's, and Walmart.

I can't tell you how friendly the staff is at Trader Joe's. I buy organic and don't mind paying a premium to shop at Trader Joes. I asked when they are building a store in Austin and they said currently, they have no plans to expand in Texas.  Sad

That and the layout and the feel of the store overall. I'll never forget when I first went in one. They really plan those to appeal to your senses...the prices are higher, but as long as you don't buy every item from there you can come out quite good. (Although I have a friend who buys there exclusively almost and I swear he'll run out of money soon...mainly because he treats it like Costco or something.) I don't think that there are any in MT, so we're in the same boat right now. Muh.

I do most of my shopping at a Wild Oats that is only a few minutes away from my place. Occasionally I'll go to Safeway to find something that Wild Oats doesn't have. I try to eat organic when I am home, since my eating habits suck while I'm on trips.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

I would say mostly Bel Air and Albertsons since they closest. Nugget just opened a new store that I will have to check out sometime as I hear great things about them.

Safeway and Trader Joes are around here as well, but their prices tend to keep me away.
