Bring Trader Joe's to Greater Tampa Bay!

1,663 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We, the undersigned, request your consideration in bringing Trader Joe's to the Greater Tampa Bay area, which includes the cities of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

Trader Joe's, a neighborhood grocery store with a national presence, has been well known for their high quality products and value pricing since 1967. The Greater Tampa Bay area has long been a popular destination for retirees, "snow-birds", and more recently, has attracted families and professionals from around North America, Europe and many other parts of the world. Among these groups, there are a great many that are already familiar with the Trader Joe's brand. Based on this premise, as well as the demographics and current shopping alternatives of the region, we believe that there is more than sufficient demand to support Trader Joe's store(s) in the Greater Tampa Bay area.

Sponsor

Glenn McKinney, a native Southern Californian now living in Safety Harbor, FL, is sponsoring this petition. While in California, weekly visits to Trader Joe's were a part of life for Glenn & his family. After moving to Florida in 2004, he realized that he really missed having a Trader Joe's nearby. Over the past few years, he's discovered that the Tampa Bay region is home to many others that are also familiar with the Trader Joe's brand. With this petition, Glenn hopes to show that there is great demand for their proven "value" approach, and ultimately bring Trader Joe's to the Greater Tampa Bay area.
