Trader Joe's. A grocery chain known for employees in Hawaiian shirts, and to-die-for products you won't find anywhere else. They have locations in 9 different Minnesota cities, the closest to St. Cloud being Maple Grove. But even then, it takes and hour and 4 minutes to get to that location with no traffic.

I say St. Cloud is a deserving location for a Trader Joe's. The town already serves as a popular shopping destination hub for Central Minnesota, so why not offer a new and unique grocery option. Turn's out we can help bring one here!


We can request the company to open a store in our area! Just a few questions need to be answered, name, town, email, and there is even a comment section! In that portion, I wrote:

The nearest TJ's location to the St. Cloud Area is Maple Grove, and it takes over an hour to get there without traffic. I think this Central Minnesota shopping hub city would make an excellent location for a Trader Joe's!

Feel free to copy and paste that when you fill out the form yourself!
