We live in Downeast Maine. Before the Portland, Maine, store opened, we traveled to Shrewsbury MA for TJ's. The Maine store is wonderful: well-stocked,efficient + helpful staff, clean, great samples. Parking is the only downside, and it's a big one. My sister- and brother-in-law tried to stop in quickly on Saturday. Not a single space available, and several cars waiting to park. They gave up and left.

It wasn't until I shopped at Trader Joe's that I realized how positive of a grocery shopping experience I could possibly have! I went for the first time last night and as I proceeded to the check-out counter, there was one person in front of me checking out, but that was better than 6-8 per usual at any other grocery store. So I was unfazed and waited patiently. Not two seconds later the teller from a couple check-out counters away came promptly over and said "I can take you over here!". Her attentiveness was impressive enough, but then she actually picked up my basket and brought it to her check-out counter for me. I was blow away. That little gesture of taking initiative and going above and beyond is just something you don't see anymore. Grocery stores have become a fairly un-personable experience in my book - but not this one. Thank you Trader Joe's for caring about your employees enough so they are actually happy to work there. It really does make a difference!

Much larger with better selection than the Trader Joe's around home (Washington, DC).

It's good to see TJs come to Maine and would like to see more locations on the Southern Coast. The product selection is dependable and wine selections attractive. Cramped parking is a BIG issue. Both the lot and space sizes are too small to accommodate TJs normal traffic. I've had to park on-street a couple of blocks away carrying bottles of wine while passing other TJs shoppers on the way. The store is great, the lack of adequate parking dampened my enthusiasm.

It was a holiday when Trader Joe's opened a store in Portland,ME. I was used to them from living in Boston,MA. I regularly go to TJ's for my staples. Their frozen vegetables and berries beat anybody in terms of quality and price. Their Artisan Breads, especially the French pain du campagne, is a must for me it also freezes very well. I have even started buying their meats because of the superior quality; and of course: flowers! And the many choices of good wines! Actually, I think TJ's could market a better wine under their own label Charles Shaw. That's the only improvement I could think of. Not to forget their lovely staff, always helpful, always available. The enlarged parking lot is a big plus as well.

My wife and I like most of the things we have purchased and their return policy is unbelievable - just tell them you didn't like an item - no receipt and it is not necessary for the item to be brought in.

Went to Trader Joe's tonight and had a really great apple, much better than the quality of apples at Shaw's lately. Plus, got some great nuts too. I will be going to Trader Joe's now for roughly 1/2 my grocery shopping. Now just need one in Westbrook to make that 100%. Welcome to Portland, Trader Joe's.
