I wonder if this was one of the stores interested in the Hal Greer property?

ADDITION!!!!!!!!

There is a demographic survey available to take so that they can determine the type if market that they would be setting the store up in. You may also add comments and see previous responses.

The growth of the organization has been achieved without debt; TJ expansion is fully self-financed. The operation remains free of union involvement—salaries and benefits are sufficient to ward off labor unrest. Advertising is limited: modest radio exposure and no television or newspaper ads. TJ does not rely on publicity, coupons, or store cards. A newsletter, the Frequent Flyer, featuring new products and store locations is mailed to customers three times each year and during holiday periods. They do not rely on email advertising.

Expansion is cautiously executed because the challenge associated with migrating its unique culture requires a meticulous selection and training process. Store location is determined by three key factors: density of population, educational level of the consumer, and distribution efficiencies. Market research has revealed a relationship between education and consumer choices: The more highly educated tend to travel more and, hence, are more inclined to be attracted to the unique product lines offered by TJ.
Huntington doesnt have the population, the density, the income, nor the education for them to be interested. Furthermore Trader Joe's is known for trying to be healthy, whereas Huntington is not known for that. It is not the type of market they are interested in.

Huntington doesnt have the population, income, and education requirements.

TJ doesnt care about Facebook likes by a small group. Cities officially try to get stores like TJ to come and dont get it. I am not trying to be rude but it is not a realistic goal. If you want a TJ you need to move.

Well if TJ does decide to put a store in Huntington, and I'm not saying they will, we will expect you to say that you were wrong. It's only fair.
