Trader Joe’s is one of the most popular markets around, but you won’t find them just anywhere. Visit the East Hill Kent location for all your food and wine needs. Trader Joe’s has been around since 1958 when it started out as a small chain of convenience stores. The stores got bigger, the staff put on Hawaiian shirts and the company started packaging innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting food under the Trader Joe’s name. That cost-cutting move meant lower prices for customers. Trader Joe’s value philosophy still exists today. It’s all about great products, no sales and no gimmicks. Just great everyday prices on all the store’s products.
