|A shopping adventure|
Unfortunately, all who were looking forward to shopping Trader Joe's for Thanksgiving mourned the loss of the opportunity when the store's original pre-Thanksgiving opening was pushed to late November, on account of construction delays.
Now, as November draws to a close, Utah will in fact welcome its first Trader Joe's location.

Because Trader Joe's is known to remove a product from its shelves if it doesn't sell well, customers will play a role in determining which items are sold based on how they spend their dollars. Roughly a dozen new items are brought in each week. "It's all part of the shopping adventure at Trader Joe's."
Store hours will be 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM, Monday through Sunday, and due to Utah's liquor laws this particular location will not sell wine.
It's refreshing to have a new store in the valley. Welcome, Trader Joe's.
