Trader Joes attracts White People.

So much for urban renewal. I guess a crack house and a busload of whores would be a way better deal.




Black residents reject Trader Joe’s because it would attract too many white people

The Trader Joe’s grocery chain has withdrawn plans to build a store in the heart of a predominantly black neighborhood after a black leadership group fought the move.

The Portland Development Commission was set to give the grocer a large discount on property that had been vacant for years, pricing it at just over $500,000, down from an appraised value of $2.9 million, according to The Oregonian.http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/i...ican_lead.html

The Portland African American Leadership Forum sent a scathing letter in December to city leaders, saying the plan would price residents out of the area and the group“remains opposed to any development in North/Northeast Portland that does not primarily benefit the black community.”

Trader Joe’s would increase displacement of low-income residents and “increase the desirability of the neighborhood,” for “non-oppressed populations,” PAALF wrote.

“[This decision] reflects the city’s overall track record of implementing policies that serve to uproot, displace and disempower our most vulnerable community members,” the letter said.

Trader Joe’s bowed out amid the controversy.

“We run neighborhood stores, and our approach is simple: If a neighborhood does not want a Trader Joe’s, we understand, and we won’t open the store in question,” a company spokesperson said in a statement to The Oregonian.

But not everyone is happy about the outcome.

“There are no winners today,” Adam Milne, owner of Old Town Brewing Co., told The Oregonian. “Only missed tax revenue, lost jobs, less foot traffic, an empty lot and a boulevard still struggling to support its local small businesses.”

Trader Joes sells nutritious food at decent, even low, prices.
They do so by debranding items that would be higher priced with the name brand attached.
They borrow their model from their sister grocery Aldis, just a little more upscale, but with many of the same items, and Aldis has similarly benefitted with increased quality in their offerings.
The owner is planning on starting a third grocery selling exclusively items past their sell by date, but still perfectly decent for consumption.

Yup! Cheaper than Whole Foods. Although, WF's has a wider selection.

MoF, Trader Joes was so economical that before KC got their two, a guy had a business buying a semi-load of TJ's food, driving it to a parking lot in KC and reselling it to KC residents.

Could be U-haul sized, not semi, but they definitely did it.

Oops, you had already responded. Yeah, similar operations came from Springfield, Little Rock, Des Moines, and any other city of decent size for which St. Louis was closer than Chicago. FWIW, I worked there for six years while I went back to school and picked up a couple of degrees. My fiancé manages in Chesterfield.

I just went in to one for the first time this past week. I was actually surprised at the decent prices. That being said I will just stick with my local Hy-Vee.

I guess providing jobs to locals isn't benefiting the community. That vacant lot is much better I'm sure.
