I am a big fan of Trader Joe’s stores frequenting the multiple locations in Pasadena, my favorite is the Hastings Ranch location where parking is easy and plentiful.
Trader Joe’s is making great strides in bringing wine down to the affordable prices. For instance there is a good wine labeled as Chariot Red Wine. very good.
In terms of customer service, they are one of the best, if you buy something and are not satisfied, just take it back, no questions asked you get a refund or credit to buy something else.
Keep up the great work Trader Joe’s!
