UPDATED: Huntington has overtaken Memphis, Tennessee's Facebook site asking for Trader Joe's. The City of Huntington site has nearly 6,300 "likes", according to Aaron Michael Fox, which places the page in first place. See link below to the Huntington website and be sure to fill out the survey.

Trader Joe's, neighborhood grocery, started in the 1950's as Pronto Stores. However, the chain has grown to nearly 500 locations. They have become known for ceder wall and employees wearing Hawaiian shirts. The stores offer innovative products, including antibiotic free meat and poultry, sustainable sources, branded products with non-GMO ingredients and gluten free offerings.

You must travel to Lexington, Ky. or Columbus, Ohio to find Trader Joe's. However, a Facebook inspired survey asks: Would you like a Trader Joe's in Huntington? Here's a link to their webpage for current offers: http://www.traderjoes.com/index.asp

The chain emphasizes organic, vegetarian, and other unique items, along with the milk and bread staples. The company sells many items under its private label (Trader Ming's, Trader Joe-San, Pilgrim Joe's, etc.) which reduces cost of brand names by elimination of the middle man.

The survey will provide demographic information on potential customers to the grocer. A Facebook campaign for bringing Trader Joe's to Charleston is also underway. Bring Trader Joe's to Huntington link is: https://www.facebook.com/BringTJsToHuntingtonWV?directed_target_id=0
