Pretty ridiculous though for these retailers to ignore a city with nearly 400,000 people isn't it? Once in awhile will make the drive over to Centennial Trader Joes. Last time I was there the cashier asked us where we are from and we said Aurora and she replied yeah we get a lot of people from Aurora, we really should open a store there. You think?

Agree, but much corporate decision making leans towards not taking risks to one's job. To put a store in a city where the data-mining doesn't support it is to stick one's neck out too far for comfort. It's like the old mainframe computer era; even though there were competing mainframe companies, the saying was that no one ever got fired for buying IBM. I wish I could find that article I read years ago about data mining which gave the catchy names the industry used for various marketing demographics.

Mortgage companies and banks paid billions to settle lawsuits for some pretty sketchy business practices not too different than this.

Frankly I think this leaves the door wide open for Aldi to come here. Trader Joes doesn't have the excuse of not being able to sell beer any longer, soon enough they will be able to sell their cheap wine too.

Not going to happen.
It is a distribution issue. Denver is in the middle of a desert.

What does this mean? Any chain can open up with the right distribution infrastructure. In and Out being a familiar name.
