Anyway, I'm stoked for y'all down in San Antonio...can't wait til it opens! I'm crossing my fingers an Austin store in next on the list...until then you can all bet your asses that hordes of us will add to what will already be a crowded li'l grocery store

Ask and ye shall receive.
Trader Joe's coming to downtown Austin next year

Man, can't ever celebrate having something for long that the other big three don't have before they end up getting it real quick too. But yet they can have something forever and then we finally get it a hundred yrs later.

Dude, we got the Alamo. If the other cities were worthy, they would've fought there, not here.

If you like wine, you'll like Trader Joe's.

Hell is a religious experience, too.

Mind you, I like Ikea, but what an energy vampire that place is.

Exactly. The selection at Central Market will be bigger, likely, than what will be on offer at Trader Joes, but Trader Joe's selection will be well thought-out and very reasonably priced. Even their "Two-buck Chuck" makes for great sangria wine

You can drink like a god, but at wino prices. :-)
