Neighborhood residents come together to ask Trader Joe's to open a store in Rainier Beach.
Invite Trader Joe's
to Rainier Beach!
There are several ways you can help bring a Trader Joe's to South Seattle.
1. Request one on their website: Trader Joe's has a place on their website where they accept requests for new store locations. They only open a handful of stores each year and of those, they only open stores in regions where they already have stores if they know there is a strong customer base there waiting for them.
2. Send us your photo & statement of support: We want to show Trader Joe's that all their south-end fans are eager for a new store. Send your photo and statement of support to WeWantTraderJoes@gmail.com and we will put it up on our website.
3. Share our campaign: We will only get a Trader Joe's in Rainier Beach if we can show them that a substantial customer base is already here waiting for them in South Seattle. It is imperative that we reach ALL south end residents who support efforts to bring more options for healthy food to our neighbourhood. Please share our video via email & social media with friends, family, 7 your favorite community groups.
