Trader Joe's does not sell its products or gift cards online. The company is an advocate of maintaining its presence as a neighborhood grocer, and does not intend to change this policy, as stated on the Trader Joe's FAQ page online.
Although products cannot be purchased online, Trader Joe's does offer information regarding the products for sale, recipes, product feedback and even the ability to request a store in a city that does not yet have the grocer.
Trader Joe's was founded in 1958 in Pasadena, Calif., where the company is headquartered as of 2015. Its grocery stores are now located in cities across the United States and can be located on the Trader Joe's official website.
The grocer is known for its low prices and quality, brand-name products that are actually labeled under the Trader Joe's name. It is likely that the low prices are associated with the company's lack of advertising as well as the fact that the grocer purchases products directly from the suppliers. Name-brand products like Cheerios, Raisin Bran and Annie's are allegedly found among the isles under a Trader Joe's label. Trader Joe's offers a full line of gluten-free, kosher and vegan products.
