    What stores/dealers/shops do you wish you had in your town?

    I've heard quite a few people saying good things about Trader Joes. I've never been to one and am curious what all the fuss is about.

    No Costco, either.

    I wish we had a weather store. Or a Campagnolo factory outlet.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    A health-food co-op (not "faith-based") -- only raw foods, or fresh-pressed/ground juice/"butters"; no canned/packaged foods, or "supplements".

    TJ's is awesome! We did not have them in FL, but do now that I am in WA. Great place to grocery shop. Think healthy foods but much lower priced than most stores of its type.

    Costco.....meh, one wareshouse is the same as another. I have a membership and use them, but my life wouldn't be that much worse if they weren't around.

    I've eaten at Cheesecake Factory and Schlotzky's and I'm not impressed with either one at all. Probably wouldn't even bother going back.

    PBK, NCIX (although it's actually cheaper to buy these from outside the province because of reduced taxes)

    can't think of anything else right now.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I love Trader Joe's. Their buyers are fussy and buy as close to organic without necessarily being organic.. In many states BGH milk is not guaranteed to be labeled. Their buyers told me , in some states labeling laws make buying BGH free milk difficult. But, they make every attempt to get such guarantees from their producers... Sort of like going to Whole Foods. Just a heck of a lot cheaper..

    Any of the following would be nice

    A bike shop.
    A camera store.
    A book store (non christian only that is).
    A decent grocery store.
    A restaurant with no drive through, waiters and table cloths would be asking for too much.
    A clothing store that is not Wally World.
    A movie theater or bowling alley.

    Sounds like you have some opportunities available (unless your town is like 10 people.)

    Sad thing is we've had all of those ('cept the LBS). They never last more than a few months.

    Cheesecake factory is lame. They have a huge menu and therefore don't prepare any one dish particularly well. A fat client I worked for used to love to take the team there for lunch. She has cheesecake thighs. Woo hoo!!!

    AFAIK, Schlotzsky's sells a sandwich that has over 2000 calories. Ugh.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
