Very poor 🤒
We don't know much about how Trader Joe's handles customer complaints outside ComplaintsBoard, but what we see here, on our website, is quite disappointing. We think there might be reasons for the company's actions (like not knowing about the complaints), and we would be happy to see them among customer-focused businesses that easily solve customer problems. But until that happens, we ask reviewers to be cautious when dealing with Trader Joe's and using their services, and to carefully read the experiences of other customers on ComplaintsBoard, because who is warned is armed, you know! 💪

Trader Joe's Mixed Feelings - Trader Joe's Store #557

Trader Joe's Store #557 offers a unique shopping experience with a variety of high-quality products at affordable prices. The store layout is inviting, and the staff is generally friendly and helpful. However, recent reviews have highlighted concerns about product quality consistency, with some customers noting issues like fruits and vegetables spoiling quickly, milk going sour before the sell-by date, and discrepancies in product ingredients. While some customers praise the store for its great prices and excellent customer service, others express disappointment over discontinued items, supply chain issues, and instances of poor treatment by staff. It seems that Trader Joe's Store #557 is facing challenges in maintaining its reputation for top-notch products and service. If you're a fan of unique finds and good deals, it's worth exploring, but be prepared for potential inconsistencies.

Trader Joe's Love your food

Shopped in Scarsdale since you opened... in south Florida now and the nearest traders is almost an hour away. I strongly suggest you find a location in Hallandale or Aventura to accommodate the shoppers who go infrequently, if at all because of the distance or get 1 or 2 items when friends go. Thanx

Trader Joe's This is one unique store!

This is one unique store! I was recently in Florida for business and there was one near my hotel. I was in there almost everyday for a week, I loved it. Tons of pre-made foods such as sushi and salads. I had no idea there was one even in my area at home, it was my first stop when I got back into town.

Trader Joe's Great store

I am addicted to TJ's variety of crackers, cheeses and wines. I've tried several spices as well and find they generally have better flavor and it lasts longer than other brands I've bought. Recently I bought "Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend" with sea salt, garlic and onion. I found it to be too salty for my taste. I don't normally put salt on my bagels and maybe that's why this tastes too salty.

Trader Joe's Love this store!

I have to be honest, I have a love affair with this store. I have been shopping here, in various location for about 30 years. I love practically all of their products and am always eager to try out their new items in their very amusingly written Fearless Flyer magazine. They offer great prices on many items, especially dried fruit and nuts, which can be costly at other stores. Their organic groceries are numerous and increasing all of the time. The staff is friendly and engaging and it is always a pleasure to shop here. I do try to avoid peak times, as it does get a bit cramped and crowded.

Trader Joe's This is my favorite food store, but I have to drive

This is my favorite food store, but I have to drive to another city to shop at it so I only go there about once a month. My only complaints are their organic celery always looks old, so I buy it at Harris Teeter instead and they do not offer case discounts on wine (but then they have GREAT everyday wine pricing instead). Wine tasting days are informative. The staff are friendly, (they really seem to enjoy working there), and will gladly go to the store room to search for additional quantity of a product. I think they are consumer oriented and by virtue of the products they sell, including their own brands, are ecologically responsible.

Trader Joe's Best grocery store to shop at for healthy food bought with a smile

I love shopping there because I come in with a smile and leave with a bigger one the staff is so friendly and always helpful. When you shop here your not just getting healthy food for your life you make friends with the workers because they enjoy their work.And it feels wonderful to have people show pride in what they do that's been lost in so many places because there's not many places that make their workers happy so the customers suffer just as much sometimes Trader Joe's has got it right.It may sound silly but when I've had a bad day and then I shop there I feel like I've been given a shot of happiness juice.The care and the personal dedication by everyone there makes everyone who shops there feel like friends and family. I've always got great food, health and cleaning products I have no complaints at all and I love that they make living a healthy life more affordable. And it's so sweet that they give you free flowers on your birthday or a special occasion I don't know of any other store that dose that. Trader Joe's you've won my heart I'll always come back because you've showed your best and more to me and all those who shop there. I feel the name should be Helpful Lovable Joe's I could never trade you Trader Joe's there is no better.

Trader Joe's Slip and fall in the store

February 7, 2024, I was shopping in Trader Joe's store #558, Brooklyn, NY 11201. It was around 9:30 a.m.

As I rounded the corner from the freezer aisle, I started to slip and slide for an extended period of time. I thought I was losing my balance and would fall down. I was terrified. On the floor in front of the egg section there was a large area of broken eggs. That was why I was slipping and sliding. No one was there to clean up the mess. I had to yell before someone came out of the back room.

This incident was extremely frightening to me. I didn't know what was happening; I was afraid I would fall and break my neck or my arm. In addition, I was left with egg goo all over my boots and the legs of my pants.

I do believe I deserve restitution for this incident.

Kelly Grill

[protected]@earthlink.net

Claimed loss: Extreme distress to me caused by this incident; ruining of clothing.

Desired outcome: Restitution for the distress caused by this incident to me.

Trader Joe's Bottled water stuck in the cart on top of cart

I left the store and got to my car, lifted my trunk, attempted to raise water out of cart, the water buckled in middle and stuck inside. Which was the top part of the cart. As I attempted to lift high enough, being stuck, I slipped backwards and fell, hit my head on car bumper and twisted my body as I fell. I had several people, including store manager stay and lifted me up to a sitting position on back of car with the trunk door opened overhead. Ambulance came, cleaned off my upper arm, elbow, put bandage on it. The manager was completely hospitable, and oversaw the whole time, about half hour, and provided me a ride home. Was able to drive my car home next day. My back and upper torso started the next day, went to my primary dr, dr. Schreck at sutter and she referred me to physical therapy, showed me exercises to do as she said my body is out of aliment to do and put ice pack on my back as needed. I still have bad pain and use a walker and cane to function in my house. Have a helper to get me thru this incident. On a scale of 1-10 my pain is still 8 I would estimate. Have another appt de 5th for another theapy session.

Desired outcome: Just want to be on my feet again and resume my life as it was. I am a senior of 82 yrs old.

I had an unfortunate situation with one of your cashier yesterday. I am advocate of your store. I enjoy Trader Joe’s because of the human connection. Yesterday, the cashier didn’t want to talk to me. I asked if it was because he had a sore throat. He shooked his head with a no. I asked if it’s simply because he didn’t want to talk to me. He shooked his head yes. Please review the camera to show the proof of my complaint. Then he talk to the woman right after me. My name is Marie, I was wearing a cap yesterday because my hair is starting to grow from chemo. I always smile because I love people, I love life. That situation should of never happened at Trader Joe’s. Your rules and values are important for the company. The cashier failed Trader Joe’s Policied.

Desired outcome: Talk to the cashier and explained to him that he cannot discriminate a person. All clients must be treated the same way, with courtesy and fellowship.

Trader Joe's Parking lot of Trader Joe’s 21431 Brookhurst Street Huntington Beach 92646

Every Wednesday Saturday and Sunday the extremist church blasts hate speech blaring 100 yards out. It sounds panicked unstable words like Hate, Sinner, Going to hell ect. Pastor Ken is scary and it scares a lot of us around here that shop at your store. We have to hear it when we park to go in and out out of your store. And they stick big awkward signs YOUR parking lot telling people it’s not church parking with their logo on. Like in the middle of the entrance to driveway not the sidewalk the street in between incoming and outgoing cars. It’s absolutely bizarre u have obligation to enforce city code in your parking lot people call this the crazy Christian center. Not fair to rest of us I am contacting local news and face book pages relevant with videos. Please help

Desired outcome: Please use your influence and enforce city code and call in when the aggressive church blasts loud music in high definition. It’s bad enough they have flat screens tv s outside facing the street. We need your help

Trader Joe's Employee River Gibbs at Medford, Oregon location

One of your employees, River Gibbs tried hooking up with my 13 year old cousin on Facebook messenger. He said a lot of explicit things on there even after being informed that he was messaging a 13 year old girl. Not to mention he sent unsolicited nudes of himself to her and tried convincing her that “age is just a number.” If you Google River Gibbs you’ll find articles numerous other people have written about his track record of messaging with children. And sure enough, his LinkedIn was very easy to find so I know this guy works at Trader Joe’s in Medford Oregon on 55 Rossanley Dr. I’m not sure if any of you at Trader Joe’s are even aware of this but some googling will confirm it. He is dangerous to have around people’s children and he needs to be fired.

Desired outcome: River Gibbs being terminated from his employment at Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered raisins

I ordered 2 - 15 oz. containers of Trader Joes dark chocolate covered raisins on 9/7/23 and received them on Monday 9/26/23 for $24.52 from Amazon.com. The box was left in front of my front door.(although the Amazon delivery information states the box was left in my mailbox. The box was too large to fit in my mailbox). The product was stale. The chocolate is turning white. This is not suitable for human consumption. I am a Senior Citizen on a fixed income and cannot afford to be out of $24.52. This was my third time ordering this product and the first time I have an issued that I need corrected. A prompt response that leads to a positive resolution to this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Nita

Desired outcome: I would appreciate a full refund. Due to this issue I am afraid to order again.

Trader Joe's 22% reduction in Organic Moo Chocolate Syrup .. SAME PRICE Pure Theft!

9/2023

First of all..you made Chocolate syrup SEASONAL..That is insane! That is not a seasonal Product it's a year round product!

To add insult to injury..when yo8 finale brought it back after a year..you stole from all customers and reduced the Chocolate Syrup 5 4.2 ounces per Bottle that's 22% Reduction and charged the exact same price 3.99 which is pure theft (and do NOT blame this on inflation... That's [censored]!)

You went from 20 ounces to 15.8 ounces..what? you really think people are not going to notice? How dare you screw us..Now its a tiny bottle so for every ten bottles you really getting 7 of the 20 ounce ones..and lose 42 ounces of syrup...multiply that by all your stores and that is pure theft! I don't want here you patronizing excuse about the high price of chocolate either! You also changed the dam formula..you added 180 MG of potassium (bad for your kidneys) You added more calories per serving up to 110 now, you added more sodium and sugar to dilute how much chocolate you are really using...you reduced the iron content..overall..you screwed everyone to make more money! Bring back the 20 ounce bottle year round and get rid of raising prices by reducing content..we are not idiots!

Trader Joe's Their check out service being to their suiting not the customer myselfs

My review is to write up all the emplyees that have purposely bothered me. That I am not left alone to shop with convenience, is quite something I hold in regards to being asked politely or not to step out of the line to the next. I think it's reasonable to assume this won't stop and am not really heavily relying on a outcome, but will say one thing about how all the inflation is affecting mental health outcomes, and being in a area with this kind of business relations, isn't helping at all my meeting new people, and so I think it is worth complaining as sitting here to understand I have higher bill outcomes chances awaiting and things also, and that I can or can't just be plainly checked out without talked down to like just anyone has panties in a bundle, or just because I should move.

Desired outcome: please stop mailing frequent flyer mailings or any trader joes mailings all together to 500 Hollendale Drive, since unrequested please.

Trader Joe's Service

Your workers should not be having personal conversations with each other while ignoring people who need to be checked out.. and after I plopped my stuff on the counter because of them ignoring me she got smart with me with a snooty tone.. Also, there's no point in pretending to be nice as to not get fired while being very blantantly out to lunch while at work.. This happened to me at both locations in Jacksonville back to back with checkers there having personal conversations.. Lengthly personal conversations are meant to be done on their offtime..

Desired outcome: Better management and behavior of employees.. Watch the snooty tone as well when a customer doesn't want to engage with you after you ignore them..
