My Dad and his friends drive to Cincinnati all the time to go to Trader Joes. Would love to see one in Lexington and another in Louisville.

I think that Lexington and Louisville would be great markets for Trader Joe's.

I've even talked to several people there "unofficially" and what I've heard is that the demographics are positive but there still some sticky issues (like the liquor sales, I guess).

Boo. I do really love my TJ's and would like to cut back on some of our shopping trips to Cincinnati! I already know about 10 families in both Lexington and Louisville that have gotten hooked on some of their products just from us bringing stuff to them!

I've been here less than a month and visited every grocery store to see which one I liked the best. Here's my take. Meijers is huge and is the cheapest. Whole Foods is Whole Foods...a variety of organic expensive food. Good Foods Coop is a smaller type Whole Foods store with the benefit of a lot of the food coming from local farmers. The Fresh Market is a unique health food meets deli...and roses...and has a little bit of everything. Loved it!! Bought a watermelon there for 2.89 and it was one of best I have ever had. SO sweet and juicy. The store has a great atmosphere too...love the lighting, the smell and the music.

Krogers is one of those stores where a lot of items are expensive unless you have "the card." The card is free, but when you use it you get everything at what it should cost. I guess for some it makes them feel like they are getting a deal!
