Thankful Thursday For All the Things We Take for Granted!

We were out this morning to grocery shop.  We parked next to this cute yellow VW bug convertible.  I was drawn to the sign on the trunk (pictured above).  And that started the momentum on taking a moment to thank people and appreciate them.

 

Of course, Trader Joe's was the perfect venue for this.  Here are a few things that we treasure and are thankful for.  We also take it one step further and express our appreciation by verbally expressing it...

 

Their ever growing Organic product selection.

 

Their staff that is always attentive and cheerful.  If you ask a question about a product that is out of stock, they will actually go to the storeroom and bring it out, or will tell you when it is scheduled to be back in the store.

 

They will always walk with you to show you where the item you are looking for is...you will not hear, "it is on aisle 7 in the middle!"

 

I could go on and bore you, but the upside of this is that it makes everyone happy and in a better mood.  You leave them happy, and we end up in a happier state of mind...It is a win/win!

 

So as that sign expressed, "humankind, be both!"

Hello Alexandra and Ron - this post serves as a nice(and necessary) reminder to me(should I say all of us???) about our behavior/attitude/outlook.   Let me count the ways. . .

Ed Silva We have a mutual affection, they know us by name, and we know all their names also.  When I mention that it is our anniversary or birthday, one of them will gift us with a big bouquet of flowers...A

How uplifting. We also like Trader Joe's, but due to the location, we normally shop at our New Season's Store.  However, we do plan special trips to Trader Joe's throughout the year. D

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD They are the best here.  We have a new Sprouts in the old Trader Joe's location.  The store is beautiful, and the service just is not on par...aisle 3 and I think it is somewhere on the bottom shelf...I like spending my money where I am getting service.  A

Good morning again, Alexandra. I saw that very sign somewhere a few days ago and remember thinking what a wonderful play on words it is.

I love the sign, and your thoughts. We don't have a Trader Joes here, but did in NY, and that was a great store!

Kat Palmiotti I wish you one, we have been loyal shoppers since they opened the first store in Los Angeles.  The owner at the time was Joe Polone, and he had the best radio ads.  He always ended his ad, by saying, "Thank you for listening!"  A
